I'm finding the autosuggest feature in Studio 2009 quite useful and it often comes up with what I'm typing.

Sometimes though it comes up with a string of 2/3 words which I probably will never use, or I get offered the plural when I'd prefer to get the singular and then add an "s" myself if needed. Is there a way of eliminating these entries or modifying them?

I'm talking about entries from an autosuggest dictionary that I generated from a big TM.

Update it manually Aug 10, 2009

As far as I know, you can't update the Autosuggestion entries individually, but you can update the AS dictionary with your updated TM. If your TM is not large enough, just export it to a larger one.

rebuild autosuggest Aug 11, 2009

Since autosuggest is not customizable and is built on a statistical model of probability based on the content of user memories, you might just edit (a copy of) the memory, weeding out (i.e., deleting) the most annoying offenders, and build a new autosuggest dictionary based on the edited memory. Main benefits of the new version, as far as I can see, include is the ease with which memory can be edited and the ease with which new autosuggest dictionaries can be deployed.
