[Solved] Specialized Dictonaries

Postby paladin++ » Thu Feb 15, 2018 9:23 pm

I need to create several specialized dictionaries, technical, training, and fiction. I was able to do this prior to 4.1.5 and in the portable version but I cannot find how to do this in the 4.1.5 version. These will all be the same language (English US) but with different technical needs.

Running Windows 10 installed version.

thanks

You can make a new dictionary by going to the menu Tools - Options - Language Settings - Writing Aids. Click the New button to give it a name and specify its language. It should then be available for editing.

As a relatively new poster you will find much useful information in the Writer FAQ, the Writer Tutorials, the up to date Writer guide and the Writer Manual. May I suggest you bookmark the pages.

Press F1 to access the Help screen and search for your problem

The chapter headings in the manual are:

1 - Introducing Writer
2 - Setting up Writer
3 - Working with Text
4 - Formatting Pages
5 - Printing, Exporting, Faxing and E-Mailing
6 - Introduction to Styles
7 - Working with Styles
8 - Working with Graphics
9 - Working with Tables
10 - Working with Templates
11 - Using Mail Merge
12 - Tables of Contents, Indexes and Bibliographies
13 - Working with Master Documents
14 - Working with Fields
15 - Using Forms in Writer
16 - Customizing Writer – Keyboard shortcuts.

When a pop-up window opens, click the Help button for extensive help on that function - it is often more comprehensive than the manual.

Also, please always search the forum before posting a query as the same questions (like yours get asked again and again and again and again ...
AOO 4.1.5, Windows 7 Home 64 bit

See the Writer Manual, the Writer FAQ, the Writer Tutorials and the Writer guide.

Remember: Always save your Writer files as .odt files. - see here for the many reasons why.
