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)?

Thanks!
Samuel

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."
