removing a specific word from spellchecker.

Postby jaypaulth » Fri Jun 12, 2015 1:23 pm

Where do I go to delete a word that is being used in the dictionary. I have accidentally added a misspelled word and now I want to delete the phrase I accidentally added.

Unfortunately there is no automated way to remove a word from the custom dictionary.

Nevertheless you can do the following:
  • find under the path c:\Users\UserName\AppData\Roaming\UrsaSoft\UrsaSpelling\Dictionaries\en_US\* your dictionary with the name en_US_user*
  • open the file en_US_user. dic* with your text editor and find the word you want to remove
  • delete the word and save the file
  • restart spell checker and Skype

    *instead en_US any other dic
After these changes your word will be checked as misspelled.

If you have any additional questions, don't hesitate to ask.
