How to add new words in user defined dict

Help

  • Is there a way to directly add (within texlipse) words in the user defined dictionary?

    in my environment (mac osx lion) I did not find any command for that.

    thanks for your suggestion

    Hi

    I'm not running mac os, but in my texlipse when I've written a word that is not in the dictionary and a red line appears under it , I can move my marker to it and press ctrl+1 (for quick fix), which gives me the suggestions for how it should be written, but also the option to add or ignore it.

    Regards

  • strange, got only the following message when pressing cmd+1:
    No suggestion available:

    Which version are you using:

    I use:
    eclipse 3.5
    texclipse:  1.5.0

     
  • I also checked the log files in eclipse:
    in the console I only see this:
    running: /opt/local/bin/aspell -a -t -lang=en -encoding=UTF-8
    aspell> @(#) International Ispell Version 3.1.20 (but really Aspell 0.60.6)

    Hi

    That explains it, as Texlipse isn't using Aspell any more (see http://texlipse.sourceforge.net/manual/spelling.html ). You can use Aspell (it should work the same, but I think the shortcut was ctrl+space). Set up the dictionary as explained on the page above and try if it works (remember to set the language of your project in the properties), as it is better implemented than Aspell, and it will allow you to spell check in other type of code as well.

  • Hi Pal,

    ctrl+space was working. Anyway, after following the steps in spelling.html and using the internal spell checker everything works perfectly now.

    Thanks, you helped me a lot!!

    best regards
