The default dictionnaries folder is located under K-Meleon root folder (dictionnaries) and can be set by hitting Alt * from within a textarea part of the page.
You can then set it to the value you want.
You can load different dictionaries from thunderbird extension website, or, quicker, use the openoffice dictionaries folder.
I was not sure that the version 3 of thunderbird uses the same dictionnaries, but I have tried it under linux with 3.2.0 which uses hunspell dictionaries, and it works without problem.
For Linux (wine), this folder is Z:\usr\share\hunspell
I don't remember for Windows but it must be something like C:\Program_files\openoffice\share\dict\ but you should easily found it by searching *.aff or *.dic
Remember just 2 points about this extension:
- the use and call is only avalaible from within textarea
- The two keys used for all the spellchecker functions are:
to choose the dictionaries folder
for dictionary choice and corrections
The default dictionaries folder has file named en-US (for example), instead of openoffice or thunderbird folders where files are names en_US (for example.
Just a little trick: when hitting Ctrl *, the action is different depending of the position of the text pointer. If it's located on an miss-spelled word, Ctrl * offered the correction contextual menu added with some settings entries, else, it just offers some settings entries.
To quickly correct a text, I first go to the first miss-spelled word, I hit Ctrl * to correct it, and I navigate then with Ctrl-Right ( or Ctrl-Left) to go to the hext word to correct.
