    I am using Full featured RADEditor for MOSS in SharePoint Lists. When I tried to add a new word into custom dictionary thru editor, I am getting Forbidden error.

    For example, I tried to add "Palau" in custom dictionary and I got the following error.

    RADSpell error. Server returned error: 403
    Please see the help for more details: RADSpell 3.x - Configuration -Spellcheck Handler.



    Can you please let me know what needs to be done to resolve this issue?

    Also, I have one more question on Spelling in RADEDitor. It seems RADEditor is not recognizing plurals. For Ex: renovations. It is providing suggestion to change the text. Does radeditor recognize plurals?

    Hello Phani,

    The 403 error means that the custom dictionary file is not accessible. The spell control needs to update this file, but the ASPNET process does not have write rights on the dictionary folder. The folder is located at
    \Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\wpresources\RadEditorSharePoint\\RadControls\Spell\TDF

    Try giving the NETWORK SERVICE account write permissions for this folder. If that does not work, try giving write permissions to the currently logged in MOSS user (if using windows authentication).

    Sincerely yours,

    the Telerik team

    Is there a way to remove the add to dictionary option?

    Hi sayitfast,

    In order to remove the Add Custom option, you need to add the following line to the respective ConfigFile.xml.

    <property name="SpellAllowAddCustom">false</property> 

    ConfigFile.xml is located in Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\wpresources\RadEditorSharePoint\\Resources folder.

    ( depends on the control's version.

    Kind regards,

    I made the change to the config file as instructed, but the changes aren't picked-up even after re-opening the browser, re-compiling and clearing the cache. What could be keeping the tools from picking-up the change?

    The MOSS RadEditor has two configuration files - ConfigFile.xml and ListConfigFile.xml. The file that will be loaded depends on the scenario you are using the editor in (http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/set-properties-via-config-file.html). Make sure that you have set the SpellAllowAddCustom property in the correct configuration file. The change should be picked up the next time you open the editor (no restarts or clearing cache is required).

    All the best,
