One word that I am trying to add to dictionary will not add.  Have tried other words but this one will not add.  How do I get it to add or figure out why it won't add?  Word is "debrided" and it is used in the medical area.
Thanks, Pat

Using Word 2010 I had no problem right-clicking on this word within a document and choosing Add to Dictionary.  You could try to manually add this by going to the Proofing options in Word, click Custom Dictionaries and then clicking on Edit Word List for your Custom.Dic (default) file.  Type the word in the space provided and click Add.

This is the first one I have had a problem with and I have added many medical terms.
Tried a different one after this one would not work and it worked fine, still this one will not add.
