Add Dictionaries and Term Lists for the Hunspell Checker

To add new spelling dictionaries 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. If you are creating a new dictionary, copy the .aff and .dic files from this archive in the spell subfolder of the Oxygen XML Editor preferences folder.
    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 , Windows 7, and Windows 8
    • [USER-HOME-FOLDER]/Library/Preferences on OS X
    • [USER-HOME-FOLDER] on Linux
  3. If you are updating an existing dictionary, copy the .aff and .dic files into the folder [OXYGEN_DIR]/dicts/spell.
  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.
