Use this settings page to create your own spelling dictionaries and thus expand the basic spelling support provided by IntelliJ IDEA by default.
On this page:
Accepted Words Tab
Use this tab to configure the list of words that should be skipped by the Typo inspection.
| Item || Tooltip and Shortcut || Description |
| || Alt+Insert || Click this icon to open the Add New Word dialog box and specify a new entry there. CamelCase or snake_case are not supported. If you try to add a word that is already included in one of the spelling dictionaries, IntelliJ IDEA displays an error message The word <just typed word> is already in the dictionary. |
| || Alt+Delete || Click this button to delete the selected item from the list. |
Use this tab to configure the dictionaries to be used for spellchecking.
| Item || Description |
|Dictionaries|| This area in the bottom of the page shows a list of the dictionaries that can be used in spellchecking. The list contains the dictionaries that come bundled with IntelliJ IDEA by default and user-defined dictionaries detected in the folders from the Custom Dictionaries Folder area above. |
- To have a default dictionary applied in the current project, select the check box next to it.
- To exclude a default dictionary from spellchecking within the scope of the current project, clear the check box next to it.
|Custom Dictionaries Folder|| This area displays a list of directories that contain user-defined dictionary files (text files with the |
dic extension, containing words separated with a newline).
