Writing my historical novel, American Gold, I find myself using Czech words and names, but Word keeps flagging them as misspellings. I don’t want to add them to my main dictionary because I’ll probably never use those words or names again.
One writer recently told me she creates a custom dictionary for each book. How could I not know about custom dictionaries? Or how to tell Word to use more than one dictionary?
