I'm looking to add a large number of words to my spell checker lexicon. I've been told to go to Library > Spelling > LocalLibrary, but there is no such file in my Spelling folder (or anywhere else on the computer). There is only 'dynamic-counts.dat', 'dynamic-text-tmp.dat', and 'dynamic-text.dat'. I'm on a MacBook Pro, Mojave 10.14.1. Is there another way of adding a batch of words?
It's called LocalDictionary not Library & is just a plain text file, but has no .txt extension. I also have two others, called en and en_GB. I really don't know what the difference is, but they all contain different custom word lists.
Presumably, if there isn't one there already, you just need to create one.
If you don't want the task of doing that yourself, then right click any word the regular spellcheck doesn't like & 'Learn Spelling' - I'm pretty sure that should create the file & populate it with your first word.
One thing to note, if you're going the DIY route for this - words are in alphabetical order, not just added by date to the next line.
You can try /usr/share/dict/words maybe append your list of words to that file.
