  1. Nice to know, but I wish ID did more. Some projects have a specialized spelling that’s used no where else. It may be all the documents for a particular client or just the words in a particularly document, say a novel in which characters say “sez” a lot.. It’d be helpful is we could create specialized dictionaries that could be turned on and off and used only for them.

  2. We can also jump directly to the User Dictionary dialog by clicking the “Dictionary…” button in Check Spelling dialog itself.
