Personal word list/dictionary

Hi. I am using the Windows version of Scrivener.

Is there any way to import or otherwise use my custom dictionary from Microsoft Word?

I’d like to add the words I’ve added to that custom.dic file so that those words don’t show up as misspelled in Scrivener.



Shutdown/exit all Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, etc.) and Microsoft email (Outlook, …) applications, to assure that the custom.dic file is not in use by any application.

Locate the custom.dic file. Sounds like you have already done this.
If not, do a Google search on “custom.dic” and read some of the articles dealing with locating or moving the file for information on how/where to find it.

Make a copy of the custom.dic file, somewhere else (desktop perhaps). That copy should be viewable/editable via text editor (see list of same in following thread).

That copy is the source file, to use as discussed in the following thread.

Hope that helps.

Thank you!

I was hoping it would be something that straightforward and easy. Yay!

Will add additional comment in the linked thread.
