I use the WinEdt to make text in Latex. However, I write in Greek and under each word shows a red line, which mean that the word is incorrect. It is very annoying. How can I disable this setting?

  • Or install and activate "spell checker" for Greek language (if it exist).

If you want to disable spell checking for your greek files, simply click on "Spell" in the status bar of WinEdt to disable this feature.

But I think it is better to install a Greek dictionary and have the spell checking feature on.

To do that, download the Greek dictionary and unzip it wherever you want.

Then download the InstallDict macro in the same folder where you have unzipped gr.zip, open it in WinEdt and launch it (Shift+Ctrl+F9).

Answer the questions the macro asks for:

  • Write Greek on "Insert language name"

    enter image description here

  • Write gr.dic on "Insert dictionary name"

    enter image description here

and you're done.

Now your greek documents have correct spell checking.

Add every word you like to the WinEdt custom dictionary by right-clicking on mispelled words and selecting "Add".
