Hi AdamXT. I haven't got RH7 here but is there not a Spelling Options menu item off the Tools menu? There is a Dictionaries tab that you can use to maintain your dictionaries.
That tab does exist in RoboHelp 5, but not in RoboHelp 7...the Spelling Options dialog is still there but the Dictionaries tab is gone.
I know that RoboHelp 5 stored my personal dictionary in a file called Personal Dictionary.tlx, within an eHelp folder. RoboHelp 7 does not appear to have this folder or any similar file.
It almost looks like the ability to juggle personal dictionaries has been deliberately removed.
I think I've found where RoboHelp 7 stores its personal dictionary...in a file called "added.clam".
I have a sneaking suspicion that they've upgraded their dictionary system to support unicode, so it isn't possible to just swap the .clam file for the old .tlx file.
In the RoboHelp 7 Spelling Options dialog there is a User Dictionary "Modify" option which allows you to add and remove personal dictionary entries...one at a time.
If RoboHelp 7 doesn't provide an easier way for doing this then I'm shocked. But then, quite a few things about RoboHelp 7 leave me in a state of apalled shock. :)
I hope somebody out there has found a better way to move a dictionary between 5 and 7!
where exactly (in which folder) did you find "added.clam" for RoboHelp 7 HTML?
I cannot find it anywhere...
I'm in a similar boat. Is there a solution?
