The Main and Custom Dictionaries
As shown in the previous steps, Word may fl ag a proper noun as an error because
the proper noun is not in its main dictionary. To prevent Word from fl agging proper
nouns as errors, you can add the proper nouns to the custom dictionary. To add a correctly
spelled word to the custom dictionary, click the Add to Dictionary button in the Spelling
and Grammar dialog box (Figure 2–74) or right-click the fl agged word and then click Add
to Dictionary on the shortcut menu. Once you have added a word to the custom dictionary,
Word no longer will fl ag it as an error.
