    Editing custom dictionary in Word


    I have found how to edit 'custom.dic' and have removed some oddities that had crept in.

    However one problem (that I know of) remains. In MSWord, I type the correct word and when I hit return it changes to an incorrect spelling (that I must have entered by mistake at some point).

    My query is how to correct this autocorrection as it is not in custom.dic.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    Alan,

    Word Options, Proofing, AutoCorrect Options, AutoCorrect tab
    and look through the Replace as you type list for the false correction entry.

    How to view or edit the custom dictionary?

    If you go to Keyboard under Settings, you can hit "reset text suggestions" to return the dictionary/suggestions to what it came pre-loaded with. I don't know of a way to more finely tune it. I would like to see the ability to create and edit a custom word
    list, like the custom dictionary list as Office uses.

    E66 - Possible to edit/delete word in T9 dictionary

    Hi

    I have a problem with my T9 dictionary.

    A wrong word is added to the list and this is the first word to be suggested for a very common input, very annoying as the combination is used a lot.

    Is it possible to edit the T9 list in the phone?

    Rgds
