View Full Version : remove unwanted entry from Word dictionary

03-09-2006, 12:11 PM
I use the spellcheck in Word often, and sometimes I accidentally 'add to dictionary' a misspelt word. How can I remove this word (and all others like it), as it now shows up as a possible 'correct' spelling?

3. Click on the Custom Dictionaries Button to see the Custom Dictionaries dialogue box.
4. Click on Modify and the list of entered words, numerals and characters will appear in single column in the CUSTOM.DIC window.
In the CUSTOM.DIC window, you can Add or Delete words as you wish.
