    Is it possible to add specialist dictionaries to Publisher the same way it can be done with Word?

    Thanks

    I just did a fairly thorough search of Help in Publisher 2000 and couldn't find any reference to custom distionary or anything else that might help you. Spell_check entry didn't help at all.

    Yes, there is no information anywhere I have looked on this subject. It is so simple to do in Word and I even managed to get specialist dictionaries into Wordpro. Any desktop publishing application should have this facility available. I was hoping someone had needed to do this before and had found a way.

    I don't know about dictionaries for Publisher, but if you've set up your text boxes correctly (linking for linked stories, etc.), you can very easily use the Edit > Edit Story in MS Word feature to spell-check any text with any Word dictionary you might have.

    Hi downwitchyobadself

    Not sure what you mean by linking. I am talking about an independent doc in Publisher that I would like to spellcheck using a dictionary I add to Publisher's dictionary. I just don't think it is possible. It looks like I would have to copy the text into Word and check it there.
