    Thanks new update helped a lot with the changes to facebook!

    Is there a way or can you add a way to add words to dictionary like ‘facebook’ for example?

    • Posted May 24, 2010 at 12:00 pm | Permalink

      Words like Facebook (capitalized, since it’s a proper noun) are already in the AtD dictionary. You can prevent any error, including ‘facebook’ from being highlighted by selecting Ignore Always. This will add the phrase or word to an ignore list so it’s never shown as an error to you again. You can manage this list (including removing items from this list) from the AtD preferences dialog.

    I just wanna say how much I love this plugin. I heavily depend on spell correctors and this one was really needed.

    I just learned reading this that it was available in different languages. Maybe the options to change language should be on the screen when you right-click. I went into the options and clicked on Auto Detect Language When Proof Reading – maybe that should be automatically on.

    Wonderful plugin. It works and it doesn’t seem to interfere with anything else.

    Thank you

      Glad to help. Making something that doesn’t interfere with your day-to-day use of the web is important to us. We keep auto-detect off because it works well for anything beyond a sentence but may be wrong when it has only a few words to go off of. We prefer only users who have a need for it enable it.
