Hello
I created an own dictionary for a specialized topic.

Example: new dictionary's name is chemistry

I found
chemistry.dic
in
C:\Documents and Settings\user name\Application Data\OpenOffice.org1.9.79\user\wordbook

But it is just 1K - so where are the words ?

Thank you
Michael

I believe they are in the realms of development.

The Dictionary and Thesaurus features are NEW to the 2.00 beta. The Linguocomponent of OOo is responsible for compiling the dictionary libraries, and I believe that they could use some help. Here is a link:

http://lingucomponent.openoffice.org/

On the page, you can find dictionaries ready for download, and instructions on how to modify your own libraries.

It sounds to me like you're a programmer (saw you interesting website), but I guess you can still help with the dictionaries. They have a separate mailing list, just if you're interested.

Why not try to include words via macro Dictionary Import/Export created by Russ Phillips?

I get an I/O error using this macro.
I will try again on another machine.

Pardon my ignorance, but could someone explain what a macro is? I've been hearing that almost everyday now, and still I have no clue.

Thank you so much!

PostPosted: Fri Apr 01, 2005 12:07 am    Post subject: macro works now but Reply with quote

after I uninstalled OOO 1.1.3, the macro works with 2.0beta

is the limit of 2000 word a limit set by the macro ? can I change it ?

why do the created *.dic files have only sizes of 1 kB ?
that seems a little bit small for a list of 2000 words ?

Thank you for any enlightenment.
Michael

when I open the spellcheck menu with F7
click on "options", then on one of my "user-defined dictionaries", then on "edit"
I can see a huge list - so I presume the words are there

BUT WHERE exactly - I don't know.

The original text file with the 2000 words is ca 23 kB.

You may try a counter-check by the same macro.
Create a brand new text file somewhere and name it, say, "ExportToHere.txt".
Leave it blank.
Export your self-created xxx.dic file to this text file. If all the words will be there then something is wrong with the counting of sizes in the machine OS. At least I think so.

You may also try to open the dic file by a text editor more capable then Notepad by the Send to option on Win.

this morning I rechecked and now the size of the dictionary files is at 20kB - that's OK
but

I made a new dic file: chemistryall.dic
imported 3 files with about 1700 words each
until 2000, it was adding slowly word by word
after 2000, it rushed through the words
always telling me that the size of the dictionary is at 2000 words

I exported the dictionary into a new file and counted the lines: 2000

is 2000 words the limit for an own dictionary ????
if not, where can I change this limitation

Thank you.
Michael

in the menu spell-check under options under user-defined dictionaries
you can find four different ones

"ignoreALLlist" is self-explaining

soffice.dic, sun.dic and standard.dic (seem to be empty?)

My question: why are there three dictionaries and not only one ?


I just switched from 1.9.79 to 1.9.87 which means that I have to reinstall all the different language spell-checkers in addition to my own language checker

Couldn't this be avoided during an upgrade ?

has it a reason that there are three user-defined dictionaries which are empty or contain just a few words ?
soffice.dic, sun.dic and standard.dic

is an intrinsic feature or a bug that the user-defined dictionary is limited to 2000 words when using the macro from ooomacros.org mentioned above ?

it is a pity that OOo is not using plain text files as MSOffice does - or has it a reason ?

it would be great if a developer could comment on these questions.

Thanks
Michael
