    I've added 9900 + words to the default .TDF dictionary file using the Dictionary Configurator downloaded from another forum here at Telerik.

    While testing some of the words, all medical in nature, I don't seem to have consistent suggestions.

    For example I enter
    zygapophy and I should get zygapophyseal, zygapophyses, and zygapophysis as suggestions but I only receive the last two. In my dictionary I have the following entries:


    I have a total of 159,596 words in the default .TDF file. Using the Custom Dictionary is not an option because of my security/network set up.

    I loaded a list of words into a word document with a .TXT extension then used the Dictionary Configurator to load all of them to the existing .TDF list - this was successful. I used the DC to test this same scenario and it works perfectly but in my application I'm experiencing the issue I stated above - missing zygapophyseal from the suggestion list.

    I assume the spell checker uses the second and third columns to help group words for the suggestion list, but in this case it seems not to work correctly.

    Have any ideas/suggestions?

    Thanks in advance,


    PS. I'm using VS.Net 2008 and C#
