Dictionary/Thunderbird


Where is the custom dictionary for Thunderbird?

I suppose it's the same one used in Firefox?

In Netscape it was custom.dic but I couldn't find one in my Firefox profile.

Thanks.

Ramona,

I had done a search on the Mozilla site earlier and found that out but it just didn't look right. When using Netscape it was a nicely laid out file but this one looked like a bunch of gibberish with no spacing at all. So I went back the second time and could see the word I needed to remove.

Do you know why the lay out is so condensed or whatever and why it isn't more legible?

Thanks.

Pat,

Use WordPad to open the file, and you will have a readable file. You might also select WordPad as the file to open all *.dat files.

I used Notepad but that's where it was just one continuous document with NO breaks at all. I was afraid to edit it and enter each word in a list. There weren't really that many words that I had added but it was very hard to read. The words just ran together as one long word.

I probably have you really confused by now. Just don't know how to express what I'm trying to say.

Pat,

I understand completely what you are saying, and that is why I am telling you to use WordPad, NOT Notepad. The words will appear in a list, as they should, when using WordPad.

I just tried it and dang if you weren't right AGAIN.

I stupidly thought any text editor would do. I wasn't even aware after all these years that there was really any difference in the two except Word was a little more powerful.

Thanks again.

Pat,

Notepad is strictly a text editor, and it doesn't store formatting commands.

However, WordPad retains formatting capabilities such as font style, font size, bold, italics, underline, and colored text, etc. Format information is stored within the document, so it displays on other computers the same way.

That's why Notepad was unable to read the formatting in the .dat file...
