How do you remove a word from the Trello spellcheck dictionary?

Hi there. I'm using the native Trello app on OSX, and I accidentally hit "Add to dictionary" in the context menu for an incorrectly spelled word. Can someone tell me how to remove this word from the spellcheck dictionary now, please? Thanks a million!

Hi @Christopher_Marsh,

I don't believe that is directly coming from Trello but Trello is using the local spell check dictionary from your Mac.  Doing a quick search on Google led me to this article that alks about how to access your local spell check dictionary:

I hope that helps!


Hi @Jimmy Seddon 

Thanks for taking the time to respond. Apologies, I should have mentioned that I'd already done some pre-work. I'd already tried the instructions in that article, and neither was the "Unlearn Word" option available in the context menu nor was the word in the LocalDictionary file.

What I didn't do was fish around in any of the other files in the Spellings folder. Turns out it was in a file named "en". I deleted it from the file, but Trello still thinks my misspelling is a word - I imagine there's some caching going on. Hopefully the cache will expire and all will once again be well with the world.

Thanks again for your help.

Cheers, Chris
