You know you ca right-click on a word that has a red-wriggle and "Add to dictionary"? Then later
in the same document and any future documents that word would be accepted.
The tricky bit would be keeping a copy of your modified dictionary backed-up somewhere. if you can
work out how to do that and also send Tim (webmaster@krackedpress) a copy then he could probably
work with that to create a specialist dictionary for chemicals and minerals.
I think you can have more than one dictionary loaded at a time and the "Add to dictionary" looks
like it is set-up to offer a choice of dictionaries to add the word to. I guess it would be really
great for most of us to start our own dictionaries of technical words for whichever area we work in
but i haven't a clue how to do that either so i just add to the standard dictionary each time.

Thank you. It doesn't have all the minerals but it does cut down on
the number of terms marked misspelled. And that dictionary will be
useful for other projects.

I have a project to make display labels for a mineral museum.
Does anyone know of a source for a specialized dictionary of
mineral and chemical names that can be used with LO?
Minerals? Well, maybe in the larger ones, but English Chemistry -
try this one.
