I installed a Spanish dictionary on Winedt long ago, but now I'm writing in English and I would like to use just the English spelling dictionary, I don't want it to mark words as correct because they exist in Spanish but no in English. Is it possible to select just one dictionary on Winedt?

  • Welcome to TeX.SX! You replace the spanish dictionary with the english, which you find here -> InstallDict. - Options > Dictionary Manager... – Bobyandbob Nov 6 '17 at 10:47

Do the following:

  1. Show the "Options Interface" (Options -> Options Interface)

    enter image description here

  2. In the "Options Interface", double-click the "Word Lists" item (Dictionaries.ini gets opened)

  3. You should be able to locate some lines like

    DICTIONARY="Spanish"
      FILE="%b\Dict\Spanish\es.dic"
      ENABLED=1
      MODE_FILTER=""
      LOAD_ON_START=1
      SAVE_ON_EXIT=1
      ADD_NEW_WORDS=0
      USE_FOR_COMPLETION=1
      ALLOW_COMPOUNDED_WORDS=1
    

    In MODE_FILTER add ES so to have

      MODE_FILTER="ES"
    
  4. Press Shift+Ctrl+F9 to reload the file.

Now the Spanish dictionary is enabled only for documents containing ES in their mode.

This means that your Spanish TeX documents must have the extension TeX:ES.

To achieve that, on all your documents written in Spanish, double-click on TeX in the status bar:

The Document Settings Dialog gets opened.

In the text field "Document Mode" write TeX:ES and press OK.

That's all.
