Create a dictionary from a word list

Library configuration & administration

While some Dictionaries are provided with Author-it, you may be working in a language that isn't provided or have a word list more relevant to what you are writing.

In this case, you can create your own dictionary for any single byte language, provided you have a word list and a character map.

  1. Start Author-it Administrator.
  2. Go to Maintenance > Create Dictionary from Wordlist.... The Create Dictionary from Wordlist window opens.

  3. Type the path to a valid Word List file.
  4. Type the path to a valid Character Map file.
  5. Type the language (or name) of this dictionary.
  6. Click Build.

The required files are created in a sub-directory of your Dictionaries folder. You can then choose this Dictionary in your Spelling Options.
