I have MS Word 2013 installed on my system and me along with my friend use it regularly. I know how to add custom dictionaries, but is it possible that each user has his own custom dictionary.

During spell check, If i add a custom word, that should not appear in his custom dictionary, and vice versa.

Eg: In my custom dictionary, the word "Aple" is added. It should still show an error in the other person's documents, but not for me.

Using separate user accounts when using Word should solve this, as settings like this are stored under each user profile. – Moab Oct 5 '12 at 16:22
Have you an reason to suppose that if added to your custom dictionary it will appear in some else's? Are you in the context of working on the same document as one another? – pnuts Dec 31 '12 at 1:57
