Hi :)

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.  

Regards from
Tom :)

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.
