Adding an Entry to the Personal Dictionaries
From the corrector
To add a word that Antidote’s corrector flags as unknown, click on the + Add command in the detection’s tooltip. If you have several personal dictionaries, Antidote will ask you to specify one.
- You can also add to your personal dictionaries by means of Antidote’s Detection menu or the context (right-click) menu when an unknown word detection is selected.
From the dictionaries
If you type a word or expression that Antidote doesn’t know in the headword field, you will see a link inviting you to add it to a personal dictionary. Click this link to open the customizations window on the word or expression in question.
A similar link is shown in the definitions dictionary’s main panel when you type a word that is already in one of your personal dictionaries into the headword field. If needed, click the link to change the word’s category, expand or correct its definition, review its characteristics, etc.
From the customizations window
You can add a new word in the dictionaries or in the corrector at any time from the customization window (Window menu). With the customizations window open, you can add as many words as you like.
First, select the list that you want to add to. Then, click on the button in the icon bar in the right-hand panel. Configure your entry as needed.
- You can also use the Add a word command in the context menu when you right-click on a word already in one of your lists.
To use an existing entry as a model for your new entry, select the desired template word from the list. Then, click on the button in the icon bar in the right-hand panel. Finally, simply edit any information that differs for the new entry.
- You can also use the Duplicate command in the context (right-click) menu.
To delete a word, first select it from the list. Then, click on the button in the icon bar in the right-hand panel.
- You can also use the Delete command in the context (right-click) menu.
Once you have entered all the information relating to your word, it will be saved in your customizations as soon as you click anywhere else in the right-hand panel. You can then carry on adding or modifying entries or simply close the customizations window to return to your previous window.
