    Hi,
     When trying to add a word to the custom dictionary, we are experiencing the following error :-

    Spell Check Handler Server Error:403
    403 FORBIDDEN

     I've had this error before in the Lite version of the RAD editor and the simple solution was to change the permissions on the TDF folder to allow access to 'Everyone'. I've done that in this case and the error still occurs. Can you advise?

     The folder path is :-

    C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\wpresources\RadEditorSharePoint\5.7.1.0__1f131a624888eeed\Resources\App_Data\RadSpell\TDF

    Thanks,
    Jason.

    Hi Jason,

    From the error I can tell that this is a permissions issue. Check if there are writing permissions for the dictionary files in the mentioned folder. For example en-US.tdf?

    All the best,

    Thanks for the advice Stanimir, the solution was to allow the creation of a custom dictionary file in the same directory as the pre-defined files. Giving 'Everyone' the read/write access to the directory fixed the issue.
