Adding a Dictionary and Term Lists for the Hunspell Checker

To add a new spelling dictionary to Oxygen XML Editor or to replace an existing one follow these steps:

  1. Download the files you need for your language dictionary.
  2. The downloaded .oxt file is a zip archive. Copy the .aff and .dic files from this archive in the spell subfolder of the Oxygen XML Editor preferences folder, if you are creating a new dictionary.
    The Oxygen XML Editor preferences folder is [APPLICATION-DATA-FOLDER]/com.oxygenxml>, where [APPLICATION-DATA-FOLDER] is:
    • C:\Users\[LOGIN-USER-NAME]\AppData\Roaming on Windows Vista and Windows 7;
    • [USER-HOME-FOLDER]/Library/Preferences on Mac OS X;
    • [USER-HOME-FOLDER] on Linux.
  3. Copy the .aff and .dic files into the folder [Oxygen-install-folder]/dicts if you are updating an existing dictionary.
  4. Restart the application after copying the dictionary files.
    Note: You can setup Oxygen XML Editor to use dictionaries and term lists from a custom location configured in the Dictionaries preferences page.
