Some words are marked as spell check errors i crossView, although they aren't and I cannot see them as errors in the individual segments. E.g. all segments with the word "hoveddør" (a valid Danish word) are registered in the spell-check error column, but since the word doesn't show with a red line underneath, I cannot add it to my dictionary (where it already is) or ignore it.

Does anybody know what might be the cause? (I'm very much a newbie in Across)

Thanks!

Hi Mark,
that is a nice question. Whenever the CrossView indicates things in terms of Spell-Checking I right click it and re-run the check. This mostly sets things straight. It also could be something crazy, but check that first.
Furthermore I definitely recommend to have a look at the "Profile" settings and to have a look what is set here, because for your language it might make sense to use the Office dictionary instead of the Across built-in sentry checker. Anyway, check out the different setings here because that is generally very helpful.
Have a good one ...
Gerald
