Post Spell checking feature how to turn on?
Greetings Costas & JG,
How does one turn on or enable the spell checking feature that is being tested?

Unzip these files and put them at same level as theword.exe or below in a folder of its own.
Spell checking settings are in the preferences -> Proofing tab

This is the revival of something that was started 8 years back.

Checking is only active on user modules.

For a regular installation it is probably best to put the dictionaries in their own folder at ProgramData\The Word\

The instruction in previous post is probably better for compact usb install, which is what I normally use for initial testing.

If I wanted to spell check in Spanish, any ideas where I could find some more on that?

--I put en_US.aff and en_US.dic in my compact install in a folder called SpellCheck in the same directory as theword.exe
--I restarted theWORD.

Under Proofing in Preferences:
--I've left everything checked.
--I left the custom dictionary alone.
--Available dictionaries does not have any thing in it.

In red at the bottom it says "Spelling is disabled!"

It's working for me. I did the same as you, except I named my folder Dictionaries instead of SpellCheck, but I don't see any reason that should make a difference.

When you go back and look are the en_US.aff and en_US.dic files still there where you put them? I just ask because when I was playing around with a dictionary file before Jon provided the files that work, it seemed my dictionary file would just disappear for some strange reason. I didn't think it was a permission problem, but I never figured it out.

I'm running Linux under Wine, for whatever difference that makes.

Is the spell check only available in a beta version. I have version 5.0.0.1450 and I do not see proofing under preferences? Thanks all

Have not been on the forum site in quite some time. Ran across this and set it up. This is just plain excellent and seems to be working just fine for me in the 1492 beta. Thanks a ton for this!

With the addition of the dictionaries Jon gave here, spellcheck in beta 1494 is working fine, except that adding words to a custom dictionary doesn't work. Instead of the whole word, only its first letter was saved in the dictionary. And when I tried to use my existing 14kb LibreOffice user dictionary to jump-start things (after cleaning up the intro lines and adding Windows linefeeds and a UTF-8 BOM to it), theWord deletes the file or sets it to 34 bits upon closing. So spellcheck seems to be working well (all four options checked; user dic location specced to user profile) except for custom words. I'm on Linux / Wine.

Great addition going forward though. Thanks much.

Hi Paul,

I'm also running on MX Linux under Wine (if I'm not mistaken, I think I've seen you on the MX forum promoting theWord :D ), and I'm not having a problem with the custom dictionary. I have theWord on a compact install in its own folder in my Home partition, and customdct.txt is located in the folder.

I run Ubuntu Mate 19.04, compact and on an SSD and it works great for me (not to mention blazingly fast on an SSD!)

Hi Jeff. Yes, that's me on that forum. MX is a really great OS, and that's a helpful forum. Glad to see several TW users there!

No luck here with the custom dictionary. If I add words manually from my LibreOffice dic, theWord will delete the file upon closing, even though I use CR + LF line endings and no UTF-8 BOM. If I keep the file blank and only add words through theWord interface, the words are added and the file is not deleted, but the words are still flagged as misspelled. I'm on a TW full install.
