Ok, no bug reports, no feature requests, no anything this time. MUSHclient has it. Woot. :-)

That said.. my reading and googling skills obviously leave to be desired. I've gone through the various spellcheck related documents in the help, and a bunch of threads on the form, but a lot of it seems to apply to when the current 'new' spellchecker was still under construction. Much is named in the way of plans, but for as far I can tell only part of those have been executed. (Configurable GUI for dictionaries, added words, etc.)

But my real queston is to have some clarity on what certain things mean in the latest version of MUSHclient.

1. In AddSpellCheckWord, are all those different options still relevant? I've dug around in spell.sqlite, and the only difference I can find for words in it is in whether or not they are user-defined.

1a. Is the "i" option the same as adding a new word to the dictionary? (And thus not related to the Ignore-buttons in the dialog?)

1b. Assuming they are all relevant still, what is the difference between a conditional substitution and an unconditional substitution?

2. Are there any plans on making user-defined words more accessible for the user to explore, or to have multiple user dictionaries? Or will one user dictionary rule them all?

2a. How about ways to make different worlds use different dictionaries?

Currently I am considering adding a manual 'Ignore' besides the 'Add to dictionary' option in my plugin because it isn't global and can be used to define terms only relevant to the world. However, any such feature I add would get ignored by the builtin Ctrl+J spellchecker. Throw in all the stuff I keep getting confused on, and I'm unsure what is the best route to take.

Are there any more plans for the builtin MUSHclient spell checker? Links to new wordlists? (I saw them in another topic somewhere, but they're not mentioned anywhere inside of MUSHclient.) I think it is awesome, and it mostly gets the job done, but it seems to suffer in usability the moment you want to do more than use the existing dictionaries.

(Ok, maybe this post can be interpreted as a feature request or such... but mostly I want to figure out what I am failing to grasp. I'm a pretty advanced MUSHclient user and I'm having too much trouble with stuff that should really be simple even on those days where I fail to read proper english. xD)

Thanks for reading this, and thanks for the awesome client. :-)
