RubyMine 2017.2 Help


File | Settings | Editor | Spelling for Windows and Linux
RubyMine | Preferences | Editor | Spelling for macOS

Use this settings page to create your own spelling dictionaries and thus expand the basic spelling support provided by RubyMine 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
/help/img/idea/2017.2/new.png 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, RubyMine displays an error message The word <just typed word> is already in the dictionary.
/help/img/idea/2017.2/delete.png Alt+Delete Click this button to delete the selected item from the list.

Dictionaries Tab

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 RubyMine 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).
  • To add a new folder to the list, click /help/img/idea/2017.2/add.png and choose the required folder in the Select Path Dialog dialog that opens.

    The full path to the folder is added to the Custom Dictionaries Folder list, and all the *.dic files found in this folder are added to the Dictionaries list.

  • To remove a folder from the list, select it and click /help/img/idea/2017.2/delete.png.
