Description Urmas 2012-07-21 11:37:32 UTC
Please allow user-selectable paths to dictionaries for spelling check, hyphenation and thesaurus to be used.
Comment 1 Regina Henschel 2012-07-22 19:59:37 UTC
This wish is already tracked in issue 36558.

*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of bug 36558 ***
Comment 2 Urmas 2012-07-23 14:26:15 UTC
No, these are entirely separate concepts and entirely separate engines.
Comment 3 Regina Henschel 2012-07-23 15:15:26 UTC
So please explain what is different. Your current description is not clear enough.
Comment 4 Urmas 2012-08-01 07:47:06 UTC
You want to say that see no difference between OO.o user dictionary and hunspell spelling dictionaries? Don't take me for a fool, please.
Comment 5 Joel Madero 2014-11-06 20:57:37 UTC
@Urmas - so...I agree with Regina here, can you explain the difference - and please try to refrain from the emotional response. It's a simple question, best to just answer rather than throw in additional language. Moving to NEW as it seems like a fine idea - just not sure how it's different from bug 36558
Comment 6 Urmas 2014-11-07 01:04:08 UTC
"Spelling dictionary" is a couple of files in Hunspell format.
"User dictionary" is a useless text file.

Spelling dictionaries available ONLY as extensions is a very bad idea leading to much inconvenience.
