Quando eu escrevo "numero" sem acento o corretor ortografico não acusa o erro porque em seu banco de dados existe a palavra "numero", pouco usada, da conjucacao do verbo numerar (eu numero, tu numeras, etc). Para resolver esse problema seria possivel eliminar uma palavra do DB ? Obs: estou ciente que se escrever "eu numero" ele vai acusar um falso-erro, mas prefiro assim do que nao acusar quando digito número erradamente.


(When I write some portughese words on the wrong way, the spellchecker dont show me the error because there is a word "much" less used identical the word I've writen wrong. Can I delete some words from de spellcheck database to fix that problem ?) (Sorry for my poor english).

You can try this. Go to:

Tools -> Options -> Language Settings -> Writing Aids

Look at the section "User-defined dictionaries", to the right of it are three buttons: New, Edit, Delete. Click on Edit and window "Edit Custom Dictionary" will show up, with the list of words in each dictionary. Choose one from the Book drop-down list and try to delete words you don't want to use.

If that doesn't work, under GNU/Linux navigate to:


You can manually edit dictionaries stored there using plain text editor as root.

Create a user-defined exception dictionary.

Step 1

Tools > Options > Language Settings > Writing Aids > User-defined dictionaries > New...

Name: (e.g.) pt_exception

Language: Portuguese (Portugal)

☑ Exception (-) [enabled]


Step 2

Select the created dictionary > Edit...

Word: numero

Replace by: numéro

New > Close > OK
