The built in speller checker and dictionary in Windows Scrivener is driving me crazy!
Is there any way to edit the dictionary file? I just typed “GPS” into my document and it was corrected to “GPSS.” What the… And then there are the proper names that I’m NEVER going to use, but the spell checker insists on using for common misspelled words. Don’t get me wrong. I like a good spell checker and since I tend to type words with all the letters, but not in the right order, it’s really useful - when it works well. I also like that I can get close to the correct spelling and have the spell checker figure out the word I mean.
That’s not the case with the Scrivener spell checker.
Is there ever going to be an update or some way to edit the dictionary file? There are some words in there that AREN’T spelled correctly and you can’t get rid of them.
Right now, I’d take any of the following options:
–way to edit the dictionary file
–way to integrate a really good spell checker with Scrivener (think MS Word or Google or even Amazon)
And are there going to be more updates on the Windows version? Ever? Wow, the target words along with an ending date is so cool. Oh, wait. It’s only available for Mac.
If you’re not going to continue to support the Windows version, you should let everyone know. And if an updated Windows version is in the works, I’d like to know that. Not everyone in the world has a Mac or wants one. Or wants a version that’ll work on a tablet.
