Description peter josvai 2018-06-20 10:07:26 UTC
it would be so COOL if we could withdraw the last "ADD to DICTIONARY" command ( = when we click on the "ADD to Dictionary" button)

every once in a while you will make this mistake to hit "ADD to DICTIONARY" when you shouldn't, and from here it is very hard to get back to normal...

a "withdraw" aka "withdraw last word added" would solve the situation easily..

an "edit dictionary" button -- here and not only via "options" --- would also be GREAT..

Steps to Reproduce:
1. when spell checking you hit "add to dictionary"
2. you want to redo it..

Actual Results:
you have to go to OPTIONS / select a dictionary / click EDIT

Expected Results:
a button like "redo" or "withdraw" would be GREAT

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

I suport this idea! But let's also ask Design Team.

How about adding the function to the undo stack? Meaning ctrl+Z removes the entry from the dictionary and ctrl+Y (redo) adds it again.

Adjusted the summary accordingly from "WRITER, a new function "withdraw" or "redo", to withdraw the last applied "ADD to DICTIONARY" in spell checking"
