I am using TeXstudio on OSX Sierra with en_GB as my default language. When I right click on a word marked as wrong and 'Add it to the dictionary', it gets saved in the en_GB.ign file under /Applications/texstudio.app/Contents/Resources and I can see this. But, this file gets emptied every time I restart the TeXstudio app. Is there anyway to permanently save it or are my settings wrong?

  • So, I figured out how to solve this problem. I moved the all the en_GB files to a folder under my home directly, that I was completely sure was writable. Now, the ign file retains its state even after closing TeXstudio. – vvps Nov 1 '16 at 22:19

    And the best thing about this: The file will survive updates to new versions of texstudio! I used ~/.config/texstudio/ as the new locations, as the texstudio already uses this to save its configuration etc. – user36296 Nov 7 '16 at 18:05
