Our company has just named some new software using a regular English word. My fingers are determined to misspell this word. Unfortunately, the misspelled word is also a place name that is in the OpenOffice.org standard dictionary, so the misspell is not even being highlighted. Until my fingers bend to my will :), I'd at least like some visual clue that I have mistyped the word, again.
I would have expected something along the lines of http://voices.yahoo.com/how-modify-standard-dictionary-openoffice-6263924.html, but when I select the standard dictionary and click the Edit... button, I get a blank list. In the enclosed list it indicates that I should be able to type in the word I want then click the Delete button, but when I try that my Delete button remains inactive.
As an end run, I thought I might be able to more directly edit the dictionary. PeterRoots gives a hint about how to do this in http://en.libreofficeforum.org/node/2140, but I'm on a Mac and Spotlight can't find a file named "en_US.dic".
So, how do I remove the place name from the standard OpenOffice.org dictionary on a Mac, so that I get misspell highlighting for that word?
