Comment 5 Paul 2016-02-19 13:16:22 UTC
Confirmed on LO 5.1.0.3, x64 .deb Linux.

Compound (hyphenated) words are flagged as a one word error by the spell checker even when both component words are in the personal dictionary.

This is still present in LO 5.3.0.3 on Linux x64.

Think that 'compounded' means 'using flags' and 'aff file'. I don't think flags can be used with personal dictionaries. Think those are two separate lists. Don't think we should expect that compound feature affect personal dictionary.

I'm I wrong about this?
Comment 9 Marco A.G.Pinto 2017-12-12 15:35:08 UTC
In Hunspell dictionaries, if you separate a word with an hyphen, the compound word doesn't appear as a typo if both parts exist in the dictionary.

For example:
1) aaa
2) bbb

If 1) and 2) are in the dictionary, if you write "aaa-bbb" it won't be flagged.

If, however, you have 1) and 2) only in the personal speller and it appears as a typo, then it is probably a LO bug or something that needs to be improved (enhancement request).
