Spell Checker: Two Questions

Hello,

1) I'd like "i" (as a word) to be marked in red, and have "I" as a suggestion.

2) I've added "tooltip" to the personal dictionary. I'd like also "Tooltip" and "tooltips" to be evaluated as correct.


What do I need to change in the dic/aff files?

Thank you

The personal dictionary file persdict.dat file only stores words that are allowed and doesn't support meta data like built-in and installed dictionaries. You nee to add all modifications separately to make Firefox recognize them.

When an entry it marked, there is a choice to add it to the checker.

Thank you FredMcD.

If you add "tooltip" to the personal dictionary, "Tooltip" and "tooltips" are marked in red.

If, however, you add "tooltip/S" to en-US.dic, "Tooltip" and "tooltips" are evaluated as correct.

How can I achieve that with the personal dictionary?

Thank you cor-el. I appreciate it.

If you want "i" to be marked in red, and have "I" as a suggestion - remove "i/US" from en-US.dic and add "I" instead.

Where can I read about the meta data parameters (/S /M etc.)?

Regards.

Thanks again. I appreciate your kind help.

Correction: If you want "i" to be marked in red, and have "I" as a suggestion - remove "i/US" from en-US.dic. No need to add anything.

Another correction: if you remove "i/US" from en-US.dic, you have to add "is" and "i.e." is marked in red even if explicitly added.
