Correcting Words

As the spell check progresses, Enterprise Architect highlights any errors or unknown words in the Check Spelling dialog. This enables you to correct the spelling of a word, ignore the error, add the word to the User Dictionary, suggest alternatives or otherwise assist in the spelling correction process.

The inbuilt spell check stores user-defined words in the User Dictionary (userdict.tlx) stored in the Enterprise Architect installation directory. During the spell check process, if you add a word, it is written into this file for later reference.
