Removing words from your Mac Dictionary

AtopicWe have all done it, I know I have.

Spell checking a document and I have inadvertently added a misspelt word into my dictionary. This might not be so bad if its a goof that you aren’t likely to repeat, by what about a word you ALLWAYS speel incorrectly?

It is there forever!  Or is it?

Try this:

1. Open TextEdit (its in your applications folder)

2. Type the goof again.

misspelt word

3. Right mouse click on the word and choose Unlearn Spelling.
