How do you make the user dictionary work? [message #264224] Sat, 13 September 2008 01:51 Go to next message

Hi all,

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"

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Adam.

This sounds like a bug. Is there anything in the .log?

Can't find any .log files, strangely enough. I have discovered that it
only seems to affect CDT though - I can't add words to the userdict from
within a .cpp file, but I can from within plain text files.

Maybe it's a bug in CDT? Is anyone else able to try it just in case
it's only my setup?

Thanks,
Adam.

Looks like that since it also works in JDT for me.

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.

Greets, Jed.
