Custom words

If one of the goals in life is to reduce work, then it only makes sense to do things to help the cause.

Every time I get a new word processor or any other piece of software that includes a spell check, I’ll add certain words so that they don’t get flagged as incorrect or, even worse, changed to something else via auto-correct.  Previously, I had shared how to turn on auto-correction on a Chromebook.  I called the post “The best setting ever“.

It’s still a great feature but needs a little tweaking.  This Chromebook setting is really unique in that it applies to everything that you might want to run on the computer.  So, I went about adding my custom words.  There are some technical terms that I immediately add, then it’s on to family members with unusual names, and then there are the locations.  

A typical starting point for this is a geographic wandering around Essex County.  These are the locations that I probably use the most.

To add them to the dictionary, it’s just a matter of choosing the keyboard settings and then the Configure button to get to the settings for that keyboard.  

Editing the dictionary settings takes you to your custom collection.

Just go ahead and add your custom words.  

It may not make you the letter perfect writer you aspire to be, but it’ll help you reduce those squiggly lines.

Nobody likes squiggly lines.

Aw, man …  I forgot one…
