The first things many users will see when they first run Abiword is the
Release Notes. Specifically the file
which incidentally has been largely duplicated in the file
and probably should be merged back together.
Unfortunately there are lots of red squiggles in this document. Not
really spelling mistakes but even so it doesn't look very professional.
(If anyone cares to nitpick my nitpicking I'll willingly explain and
justify most of my changes but I dont think it is worth going into here).
Attached is my first patch in ages which fixes, adds spaces and rephrases
some sentences mostly to avoid some of the pseudo "misspellings".
Abiword probably needs to expand the custom.dic file to include more words
to avoid things (trademarks particularly) being marked as misspelled:
Solaris, website, shareware, distributable, Bugzilla, AbiWord's,
AbiSource's, AbiSuite's, BeOS, and probably a few others.
I haven't checked Bugzilla to see if this bug is still open or if it is
just the windows version of Abiword but links (URLs) are not being
properly ignored by the spellchecker.
Thank uwog for telling me to patch it instead of just whinging
and Merry Christmas.
