    We are using the RadEditor for Moss in our Sharepoint sites.  I've added the 'AjaxSpellCheck' to the toolsfile.xml for the site.  However, when the spellchecker is used it is using the en-us dictionary.  I have downloaded a en-GB dictionary that I found through a previous post although I'm not sure if it is the latest version.

    I have copied the tdf file to this directory:

    I've also copied the en-US directory in the Localization folder and renamed it en-GB.

    Where do I set the spellchecker to use the en-GB dictionary?  I've seen posts about giving multiple languages as a choice but we want the GB dictionary to be the only option.

    This is the toolsfile that I am currently using incase it is just a property that needs setting:


        <module name="RadEditorDomInspector" dockingZone="Module" enabled="true" visible="true" />
      <tools name="MossTools1" dockable="false">
        <tool name="Cut" shortcut="CTRL+X" />
        <tool name="Copy" shortcut="CTRL+C" />
        <tool name="Paste" shortcut="CTRL+V" />
        <tool separator="true" />
        <tool name="Undo" shortcut="CTRL+Z" />
        <tool name="Redo" shortcut="CTRL+Y" />
        <tool separator="true" />
        <tool name="MOSSLinkManager" shortcut="CTRL+K" />
        <tool name="Unlink" shortcut="CTRL+SHIFT+K" />
        <tool name="ImageManager" shortcut="CTRL+G" />
        <tool separator="true" />
        <tool name="FormatStripper" />
        <tool separator="true" />
        <tool name="AjaxSpellCheck"/>
        <tool name="FindAndReplace" shortcut="CTRL+F"/>
        <tool separator="true" />
      <tools name="MossTools2" dockable="false">
        <tool name="FormatBlock" />
        <tool separator="true" />
        <tool name="Bold" shortcut="CTRL+B" />
        <tool name="Superscript" />
        <tool name="Subscript" />
        <tool name="InsertOrderedList" />
        <tool name="InsertUnorderedList" />
        <tool separator="true" />
        <contextMenu forElement="*">
          <tool name="Cut"/>
          <tool name="Copy"/>
          <tool name="Paste"/>
        <paragraph name="&lt;h2>Heading 2&lt;/h2>" value="&lt;h2>" />
        <paragraph name="&lt;h3>Heading 3&lt;/h3>" value="&lt;h3>" />
        <paragraph name="&lt;p>Normal&lt;/p>" value="&lt;p>" />

    Hi Peter,

    Please review bellow how to achieve the desired behavior:
    1. Add the desired dictionary to the RadControls\Spell\TDF folder.
    2. Open the respective ConfigFile and set the SpellDictionaryLanguage property e.g.:
      <property name="SpellDictionaryLanguage">en-GB</property>

    I hope this helps.

    Best wishes, George
