Import Changes to Spell Check


The Spell Check File should be able to be imported from one iteration of the programme to another. With each new iteration of the programme, additions to the spell check need to be re-added to the spell check, not just regional issues such as Colour & Centre but common abbreviations like D1, D2 et cetera, et cetera.

Usually we leave a the Structural Engineer's firm to do the structural drafting. We just finished the first project in VW 2019 with lots of structural information & I spent what seems like hours with the spell check reteaching it to accept such simple things like: HSS, LVL, MPa, et cetera, et cetera. Is Spell Check too deep into the programme to not allow it to update/import? 


This happens with scores if not hundreds of items every time we launch a new iteration of programme & in a big file can take a long time to chug through the file.
