Hello all,

I recently discovered that my spell checker accepted a few words that were obviously wrong.
I think they must have been added to my spell checkers' memory by accident. (I was probably tired and in haste; they are that kind of mistakes).

Is there a way of removing these words? Just to make sure I made myself clear: this is not in the project dictionaries, but in the list/vocabulary of my spell checker.

I work with Transit XV, with add-on spell check for Dutch, German and English and have downloaded and installed every update and service pack I've ever been told to.

Any help appreciated!

Spellers in Transit XV Feb 12, 2009

Hi Margreet
If you have added words to your spellchecker, you will have a file called SPELL.NED (for Dutch) in your \Transit XV\Config\Users\Margreet folder. This is a text file, and you can edit it in any text editor. I suggest using Transit XV, which is one of the best Unicode text editors around.
