Any user using Notes, Sametime, Connections, Office, OpenOffice, Symphony, TAP, Firefox and plenty of other tools (IBM or not) are offered a spell check function where unknown words can be added. Great! So, when I come with a new word or acronym, I have to add it between 5 and 10 times. What a waste of time! I have to improve my quality (word consistency) and productivity (remove duplicate actions) in the future. By no way should we target to build another dictonary on top of all the proprietary ones. We simply need to keep all these dictionaries in sync. It should simply be transparent for the user who would use the tool function of the tool he/she works with. But if technicaly impossible, other solutions can be looked at. A "single dictionary manager" that would populate all dictionaries (that stand in my machine) at once would bring tremendous productivity and ease-of-use.

Must have a choice in settings outside the dictionary, and for this we must add support for all commonly used formats of dictionaries.

I could see for all lotus products but for the rest there isn't an industry standard to do it.

Thank you Bruce. Your answer opens a great offering as it seems there is a hole in the market.

Thank you Bruce. Your answer opens the door to a market offering as it seems there is an opportunity to define a standard, starting with Lotus products.

All Lotus products use to share the dictionary, Notes, ccMail, 1-2-3, Word Pro, Freelance, Approach. Not sure when IBM changed it.

This is a great idea! However I don't see how it's particularly relevant to Notes/Domino from an implementation starting point.

You should write an RFC and talk to { Link } ! Big job :)
