How to remove old German spellings
Version: 3.5x, 4.0 - Scientific WorkPlace, Scientific Word, Scientific Notebook
The installation program for the German dictionary places two dictionary files on your hard drive. One contains new German spellings; the second contains supplemental words for old German spellings. The installation program also updates the SWP, SW, or SNB .ins file with information about the dictionary files. If you prefer to use only the new German dictionary, you can remove the old German dictionary file by changing the information in the .ins file.
The .ins entries look like this:
LexFileDesc.0002=German Proximity/Bertelsmann Linguibase (New spelling),German Proximity/Bertelsmann Linguibase (Old words supplement)
(This example assumes that SWP 3.5 is installed in the d:\swp35; your program and your installation directory, and therefore this .ins file entry, may differ.) The last two lines contain information pertaining to both dictionaries.
To remove the old spellings:
The next time you start the program, the registry will be updated with the new information in the .ins file, and only the dictionary of new German spellings will be used.
