Revit 2021 Spelling Check Custom Dictionary Revit.ini File


I ran into a spell check error the other day. I usually use the phrase: “The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog” and substitute “dawg” for “dog” to force a spelling mistake. However, this did not work. I suspect that, because I installed Revit 2021 on my D:\ instead of C:\ Revit is unable to find the Custom dictionary file used for spell checking.

I therefore set the path to the custom library in the Revit.ini file. The custom library file can be found here:

  • C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\RVT 2021\Custom.dic

The Revit.ini can be found here:

  • C:\Users\PaulS\AppData\Roaming\Autodesk\Revit\Autodesk Revit 2021\Revit.ini

Here follows the exact wording / coding that is used in the Revit.ini file. Note, over and above the parth to the text files housing the excepted words / phrases, the OptionFlagsSSCE that can be used as well as the LanguageCode is available for modification.




ArchDict=C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\RVT 2021\RevitCustom.dic

CustomDict=C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\RVT 2021\MyCustom.dic
