Hello,

I'm using geany + spellcheck of Fedora 19 and 20. I have enchant + aspell installed an have put a user-defined dictionary in ~/.aspell.en.pws. When I check for spelling with the "aspell -c $file" command this dictionary is taken into account. However geany does not recognizes this dictionary. How should I configure this?

    This is mostly an Enchant issue.
    IIRC Enchant maintains its own custom dictionaries in ~/.config/enchant.

    Maybe you'll try to add one of your custom words in the configs there and see whether it works.

    Re-open if you still think this is SpellCheck issue.

    Great! This is indeed to location to modify the user-dictionary.

    I was confused because I was under the impression that enchant fully relied on a backend, such as aspell. It indeed appears that enchant keeps it own user-dictionary and does not read the aspell-user-dictionary.

    Thanks!
