JetBrains Rider 2024.1 Help

Spelling settings

Use this settings page to select custom spelling dictionaries, create your own dictionaries, add words, and thus expand the basic spellchecking support provided by JetBrains Rider by default.

Item

Description

Use single dictionary for saving words

Defines the behavior of the Save 'word' to dictionary action invoked on a highlighted word:

  • If the checkbox is selected, JetBrains Rider lets you select one of the built-in dictionaries where all highlighted words are saved.

  • If the checkbox is cleared, you will have to choose the dictionary manually every time you save a highlighted word.

Custom Dictionaries

This area displays the list of active dictionaries, which can be any of the following:

  • The built-in project-level and application-level dictionaries, which you populate by manually saving words to them.

  • Built-in ReSharper dictionary, which allows saving words in settings layers, making them accessible with ReSharper.

  • Plain text files with the DIC extension, containing words separated with a new line.

  • Hunspell dictionaries, comprise two plain text files commonly sharing the same name, for example, en_GB.dic and en_GB.aff. The DIC file contains a list of words together with the applicable modification rules. The AFF file lists prefixes and suffixes regulated by a specific modification rule. Hunspell dictionaries can be easily obtained online, for example, here.
