Hey guys,

I was wondering if you have this issue too. In Tageditor, while running (MS Word) spell check, and you stumble upon a word that is not in the dictionary - but you want it to be, so you click "add" to add it to the dictionary. Only problem is that it is not added and the next time you run the spell check and that word is found, it is treated as a word not in the dictionary. Pretty odd, and annoying.

Hi Markus,
I got the same problem of late (having updated Word 2003 to Word 2007), and it appears that we are the only ones facing this problem, otherwise somebody would have answered or are all others using that winter Tree spelling checker - it is fast but dumb.
Can anybody from the community help?
