Using different Dictionaries and Languages in Fade In

Fade In uses dictionaries on a document by document basis as well as global dictionaries. You can also use third party dictionaries if you like. Let’s have a look.

Fade In has dictionaries preinstalled in a wide variety of languages.

You can add words to the dictionary for the current document or to the global dictionary.

If you add them to the global dictionary they will be available for every Fade In document, whereas words for the current document are saves with the document and are not available for your other scripts.

Add to Current Document Dictionary

To add a word to the dictionary right click and add it. This adds the word to the dictionary of the current document.
