Editing a Custom Dictionary
One way to get words into the default custom dictionary is to type them in a presentation
and then use the Spelling feature to add them. However, you can also add words to the
custom dictionary without having to type them in the presentation and then spell-check
them. Follow these steps to add words:
1. Choose File
Options.
2. Click Proofing.
3. Click Custom Dictionaries. The Custom Dictionaries dialog box opens (Figure 7.7).
4. Select the desired custom dictionary from the list.
5. Click Edit Word List. A dialog box appears, listing all of the words that are cur-
rently in that dictionary. See Figure 7.8.
6. To add a new word, type it in the Word(s) text box and click Add. Words can be
no longer than 64 characters.
