To add a dictionary
You can add additional dictionary
files to Designer to suit your needs. That is, if you want to expand
the list of correctly spelled words that Designer refers to when
spell checking a form, you can add one or more custom dictionary
files (*.clam) for a specific language or for all supported languages.
For example, you can add a custom dictionary of unique terms for
specialized industries such as medicine, law, engineering, insurance,
or finance. Keep in mind that if you want to add the words in a
custom dictionary file to a particular language instead of all languages,
you must include the correct language extension in the custom dictionary
file name. Let’s say you want to add a custom dictionary file to
French Canadian only, you must add
to the file name
-fr_CA.clam. If you do not include
a language extension in the file name, the words in the file will
be considered correct for all languages.
You can also add more standard dictionary files
(*.lex) for languages that Designer does not already support, by
manually adding the files to the folder located at \Program Files\Common
You can use the options in the Spelling panel of the Options
dialog box to add dictionaries and select which dictionaries are
used when performing spell-check operations.
Select Tools > Options.
Select Spelling from the list on the left and then click
Add a Dictionary. The Custom Dictionary File dialog box appears.
Browse to the dictionary file you want to add to Designer
and click Open. The dictionary is added to the list of installed
