G'day everyone
I've heard that CorelDraw uses the same UWL (user word list) as WordPerfect. There is no way I can figure out to use CorelDraw to turn a plaintext list of words into a UWL file, but perhaps there is a way to use WordPerfect to do it? I have a list of 300 000 words that I'd like to use as a UWL... how does one do the conversion? Is there a special tool for it? Or will I have to simply get a recent copy of WordPerfect and add the words one by one (perhaps using AutoIt)?

Obviously there is an editor bundled with WordPerfect... Nov 9, 2005

Check out this article:

"Using a third-party dictionary by converting a document to a user word list

In WordPerfect 9, you can use a third-party dictionary by converting a dictionary to a WordPerfect document, and then converting the document to a user word list. You can use a spell utility program from a previous version of WordPerfect to make the conversion. The filenames for the spell utility programs are WT9SPTLEN.EXE (WordPerfect 9), WTSPTLEN.EXE (Corel WordPerfect 8), SPUTL61.EXE (Corel WordPerfect 7 for Windows 95), and SPELLUTL.EXE (Corel WordPerfect 7 for Windows 3.x). You can use any of the spell utility programs to convert the WordPerfect document to a user word list."
