For simplicity I want to combine 4 custom language .dic files into one file. How can I do this, and what is the limit of entries in a single .dic file in LibreOffice? [I'm using LibreOffice 3.4.4 in Linux Mint 12, Gnome 3.2.1]
If you are referring to user-defined dictionaries
.../user/wordbook) in user-editable
e.g. Language English (USA):
OOoUserDict1 lang: en-US type: positive --- [...]
(1) Open the
"*.dic" files with a text editor, and copy/paste the word lists in a single
"sample.txt" file (flat UTF-8).
(2) Sort the content: alphanumeric, ascending (you may use Writer, menu
"Tools → Sort").
(3) Add the encoding lines at the beginning ("OOoUserDict1...", see above).
(4) Save the file, rename it to
(5) Open Writer, check menu `Tools → Options → Language Settings → Writing Aids → User-defined dictionaries → ☑ sample [English (USA)].
As far as I can see in → Bug 48676 - Remove or expand limitation on User dictionary, the limit of entries in a user-defined dictionary has the value 30,000.
the dictionary format for "Language: [All]":
OOoUserDict1 lang: <none> type: positive --- [...]

Thank you Manj_k, This has worked, and in 5 minutes my four user defined dictionaries were combined into one, and works faster and seems to bring up more complete lists in the correction option pop-up menu. BTW the single new file, has 7,800 entries.
Below is the file format:
OOoUserDict1 lang: <none>
[my list of words are here, A-Z sorted, no spaces allowed, just word and return.] Note lang: <none>
