|How do you make the user dictionary work? [message #264224]

I've just upgraded to Eclipse 3.4 and thought I'd give spell checking a
go. As quite a few words are missing from the dictionary, I'd like to
set up a user dictionary so I can add these words in.
I've got a user-defined dictionary listed under Preferences | General |
Editors | Text Editors | Spelling, and this file exists (with one word
in it I added manually.)
Whenever I press Ctrl+1 on a misspelled word and choose Add to
dictionary a message pops up saying "A user dictionary is needed to add
words. Do you want to configure it now?" If I click yes it opens the
window above with my user dictionary already entered in.
I'm not sure if this makes a difference, but if I click "Browse" to
choose a different filename for the dictionary, the browse window opens
up with no folder selected - the list of files is just blank. I have to
manually choose a directory to start browsing from.
The filename is an absolute path: "/home/user/.eclipse/userdict"

Oh still no answer to it? I got the same problem.
Fix: There are different settings for each spelling engine you can set.
Just select c/c++ engine and put localdictionaryC.txt in the
User_defined dictionary. Then select the default spelling engine and
choose another file, lets say localdictionaryDefault.txt. This worked
for me and i can use the context <+Add 'word' to dictionary> function.
Of cause you can choose the same file for different engines.
Hope this helps to find that "hidden" setting.
