Corrupt spell checker database?

Post by Purpendicular » 2019-10-17 07:19:43

I attempt to teach my dictionary new words. Most of them are remembered, but then, a few minutes later, or a day later, the dictionary has forgotten them. This is without me ever shutting down Nisus. Except when it crashes (which happened today, version 3.0.4).

Today, I attempted to teach the dictionary "hominin" and that word does not take at all.

I guess that there is some sort of corruption of the local spelling database. But if so, or in case there is another problem, I have no idea how to fix it. I assume that it would be possible to throw away some file, but if that can be avoided, I would be grateful. There are after all a few words that I have taught it. Maybe you have a tool to regenerate the database?

Also, the problem is the same for British and US English. In case these databases are truly separate, they suffer from the same problem.
