General usage instructions

Hunspell uses its own dictionary format, with each dictionary comprising two files. These files are commonly stored in the same directory and share the same name, for example, en_GB.dic and en_GB.aff. In the majority of cases, however, downloading a ready-made dictionary online is more than enough to fulfill one’s spell-checking needs. These resources may provide you with a good start for finding a dictionary:


  • https://github.com/wooorm/dictionaries

  • https://github.com/titoBouzout/Dictionaries

  • http://wordlist.aspell.net/dicts/

  • http://extensions.services.openoffice.org/en/dictionaries

  • Having downloaded the dictionary, store it in a folder of your choice so that you can locate it from IDE. After you've downloaded a dictionary, appoint it to be used by the spell checking engine. Navigate to the Settings/Preferences | Editor | Spelling, switch to the Dictionaries tab and select the dictionary folder. With the dictionary in place, IDE will provide you with everything you would expect from a spell checking system: it will detect and highlight typos in your text and propose corrections for them.
