Adding multiple words that are incorrectly shown as misspelled to dictionary
Posted on 2004-09-21
When dealing with a body of text with many unrecognised words - which show as incorrectly spelled - is it possible to highlight the whole block, and tell Word to add **any** "misspelled" word to the CUSTOM.DIC?
I typically get this when writing geek documentation (someone's gotta do it!), and am too lazy to go through and add 100 or so more terms individually. Don't want to add *all* the words, just the ones that Word thinks are misspelled. Pasting the entire paragraph into CUSTOM.DIC seems a bit brutal!
Selecting a paragraph, right-clicking, and seeing the option "Add ALL to Dictionary" would be the perfect thing...
