I was trying to write ‘ad hominem’ and I could not spell this ( with or without a hypen ) without the spelling checker changing it on me … so a couple of recommendations:
[list=] - add commonly used latin and other terms to the dictionary files so that I don’t have to add them to my personal dictionary
 - provide ‘jargon’ dictionaries for medicine, other sciences, etc.
[*] - change the way the autocorrect function works, so that if it doesn’t know a word, I can override its behaviour without having to add the word to a dictionary, specifically either:
allow me to backspace over its suggestion, and type what I want again … or
highlight incorrect spelling and allow me to choose spell-correct options ( like in MS Word )
ALSO NOTE: I’m not sure if I have used this forum incorrectly, but it seems in the preview my desire to have a bulleted list nested in a numbered list doesn’t work … so I thought I would leave it like this in case you were not aware.
Here’s the BBcode[list]
Here’s a short reference to BBcode formatting: forums.classcreator.com/bbml.htm
Now, to the dictionary. Scrivener come with a limited dictionary. It’s got about 50k entries, maybe a few more.
I personally use a larger dictionary.
and… you can EDIT the dictionary (it’s a text file)(beware. the first line of the .dic file contains the number of entries. So if you add a few, change that number). Or replace it. The devs simply copied Hunspell’s basic dictionary; they did not edit it.
