    Hello,

    We are working on a healthcare application using the RadEditor.  Can we add medical terms to an existing or custom dictionary file to be used in the RadEditor control?  I found an article included below.

    www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/editor-create-new-dictionary.html

    Thank you.

    Hi,

    Yes, you have found the appropriate article which provides guidance how to add new words to the existing TDF dictionaries via the Dictionary Configurator tool.

    Hello,

    When we use the Add to dictionary option on a word in the Rad Editor, is there a way to make the word be added in the .tdf file associated to the spellcheck instead of the words going into a separate -Custom.txt file?

    Regards, 
    Ana

    Hello,

    This feature is not supported out-of-the box by the spellchecker.

    Hello,

    We implemented a custom dictionary named  custom-dic.tdf and have the following declaration:
     <telerik:RadEditor runat="server" ID="radEditor" SpellCheckSettings-DictionaryLanguage="custom-dic" SpellCheckSettings-SpellCheckProvider="EditDistanceProvider"></telerik:RadEditor>

    The dictionary path is set in the code behind to App_Data/RadSpell folder.
    We implemented the admin functionality to add words in our dictionary using the sample provided and it works OK. We can see the words we add in the tdf file. However, some words that appear in the tdf file, still trigger the Ajax Spellcheck in the RadEditor. Shouldn't all the words that are present in the custom dictionary pass the SpellCheck? Are we missing some settings or does it take a while for the words to be visible in the RadEditor as well ?

    Regards,
    Ana

    Hello,

    Could you please provide the custom-dic.tdf file, some misspelled content and steps to repro the reported problem? You can use the attachment functionality of the support ticketing system to send the tdf file.
