Edit (Correct) Your LibreOffice Custom Dictionary

Updated: 28-Jun-2016

E-mail applications and word processors, such as the Writer application in the LibreOffice office suite, make it easy to add all of the buzzwords, brand names and custom spellings to its custom dictionary. You simply add the new word as you perform a spelling check, usually by right-clicking the underlined word and selecting "Add To Dictionary", or something equivalent. It is not quite so obvious how you correct the entries in these custom dictionaries when you make a mistake.

The instructions below describe the steps involved correcting misspellings in LibreOffice.

Edit the LibreOffice (or OpenOffice) Dictionary

  1. Open the LibreOffice Writer application.
  2. From the menus, select Tools, Options, Language Settings, Writing Aids.
  3. Select the user-defined dictionary you want to edit and click the Edit button.
  4. You can select an existing word and delete it or you can add a new one.
  5. LibreOffice Dictionary Edit Dialog Boxes.
