This info might help, not sure what your skill set is or what roadblocks you may run into trying to edit the file.

To remove the en-US dictionaries so that they are no longer accidentally triggered, and to ensure that your chosen dictionary is used at all times, do the following: Shut down Firefox. Go to your install directory (“Mozilla Firefox”, usually under “C:\Program Files” in XP). Look for the “dictionaries” folder. In that folder, you will find the files: en-US....

The second option below seems to be a Service that you manually created or another application added for you. Check in ~/Library/Services for anything related to that, or deactivate this option from your Keyboard Shortcuts if it's there for you (like it was for me). As for the first one ("Look Up in Dictionary", above "Voix"), it is hardcoded into OS X, ...

Dictionaries in firefox are installed as extensions. You should be able to remove any you don't want by looking through the list of installed dictionaries in "Tools"=>"Add-ons"=>"Extensions". Alternatively, you may be able to delete them directly from the extensions folder. In my case, the three non-English dictionaries I have installed all have a folder ...

You can't add duplicate keys to hashtables, because hashtables by design can only contain unique keys. If you need to store duplicate key/value pairs, use arrays. I'm using an array of independent hash tables, but somehow when you add the hashtable to the array, the keys need to be unique across all the hashtables in the array That' strange, because it ...

This accepted answer is incorrect or out-of-date w/r/t Google Chrome on Windows.

Don't know if you need to use NppScripts for this, but if you simply want to create a text file in the format you listed you could use simple cmd line code. (for /L %n in (1,1,100000) DO @ECHO %n ^|^| %n) > Output.txt You can copy and paste this into a command prompt and it will create a text file named Output.txt with lines 1 || 1 to 100000 || 100000 ...

The spell checking in PSPad sucks for German as it is case-insensitive. I recommend using the free Notepad++. It comes with a plugin called DSpellCheck that supports Hunspell. With the symlink method mentioned before, you should be able to use one set of dictionary files for pretty much every writing task.

You can follow this guide to integrate openoffice and thunderbird dictionaries: http://hektor.umcs.lublin.pl/~mikosmul/computing/tips/mozilla-thunderbird.html I don't know your text editor, but if it supports myspell dictionaries the procedure is very similar.

Words that you add go into one or more custom dictionaries. These are a simple alphabetized list of your words. The only rule Word applies to extend the entries to other usage is that it will recognize that a capitalized first letter at the start of a sentence is the same word. So if you want plurals, you need to add them yourself. A good description of ...

This would be better asked on StackOverflow.

You can trick Word by using a Unicode control character called Zero Width Joiner (ZWJ). Here's how: First, type the word Wolfram. When it's marked as a spelling mistake, add it to your dictionary. I assume 'Alpha' is already a valid word (if not, add it as well). Type `Wolfram|Alpha'. It will be marked as a spelling mistake. Place the caret before or after ...
