To set the Dictionaries preferences for the AutoCorrect feature, open the Preferences dialog box (Options > Preferences) and go to Editor > Edit Modes > Author > AutoCorrect > Dictionaries. This page allows you to specify the location of the dictionaries that Oxygen XML Editor uses for the AutoCorrect feature and the location for saving user-defined replacements.

The following options are available in this preferences page:
Dictionaries default folder
Displays the default location where the dictionaries that Oxygen XML Editor uses for the AutoCorrect feature are stored.
Include dictionaries from
Selecting this option allows you to specify a location where you have stored AutoCorrect dictionaries that you want to include, along with the default ones.
Important: Consider the following notes regarding this option:
  • The AutoCorrect mechanism takes into account AutoCorrect dictionaries collected both from the default and custom locations and multiple dictionaries from the same language are merged (for example, en_UK.dat from the default location is merged with en_US.dat from a custom location).
  • If you have a generic AutoCorrect dictionary file (one that just has a two letter language code for its file name, such as en.dat) saved in either the default or custom location, the other more specific dictionaries (for example, en_UK.dat and en_US.dat) will not be merged and the existing generic dictionary will simply be used instead.
  • If the additional location contains a file with the same name as one from the default location, the file in the additional location takes precedence over the file from the default location.

Save user-defined replacements in the following location
Specifies the target where added, edited, or deleted replacements are saved. By default, the target is the application preferences folder, but you can also choose a custom location.
Tip: To save changes to the Replacement table (in the AutoCorrect preferences page) at project level, select a custom location for the User-defined replacements and select Project Options at the bottom of the page.
