I'm editing a task description, and it's putting red squigglies under some technical terms, and giving me a tooltip saying the word is not spelled correctly.

I had already created a user-defined dictionary because of some code comments I had written before. That resolved the issue with my code comments.

I tried entering one of the words I had already had in my dictionary in to the task description, and it doesn't squiggle it.

As the context menu in t he task editor doesn't provide any way that I can see to add words to the user-defined dictionary (and I see no interface for this in the preferences area), I edited the dictionary from an external editor and added one of the new words that it's complaining about in the task description.

After I stored the file in the external editor, Eclipse didn't appear to notice the dictionary was changed. I tried doing various "refresh" operations, but nothing made any difference.

The only thing that worked was exiting Eclipse and restarting. I wish there was a better way to refresh the spellcheck.

I would file a bug, but I don't know if this is Mylyn-specific or not.

You can press Ctrl+1 to add unrecognized words to the dictionary.
