I was editing the following line of text:
enable mouse scrolling, pane selection, pan reiszing and so on.
I noticed "reiszing" was misspelled so I used the following command to turn on spellcheck:
setlocal spell spelllang=en_us
"reiszing" was highlighted as expected but then I accidently used the
zg command which added the word to my dictionary. I grepped through
/usr/share/dict/words but didn't find "reiszing".
- How do I remove this word from my dictionary?
- If the word isn't stored in
/usr/share/dict/words, then where is it?
I read in another answer that the command
Can be used to find the paths that
~/.vim /usr/local/Cellar/macvim/8.0-127/MacVim.app/Contents/Resources/vim/vimfiles /usr/local/Cellar/macvim/8.0-127/MacVim.app/Contents/Resources/vim/runtime /usr/local/Cellar/macvim/8.0-127 /MacVim.app/Contents/Resources/vim/vimfiles/after ~/.vim/after
I was able to fix my problem by blowing away the files:
$ rm /usr/local/Cellar/macvim/8.0-127/MacVim.app/Contents/Resources/vim/runtime/spell/en.utf-8.add $ rm /usr/local/Cellar/macvim/8.0-127/MacVim.app/Contents/Resources/vim/runtime/spell/en.utf-8.add.spl
This worked fine for me now becuase it was the first time this happened but I'm curious if there is a simpler and less destructive way to remove a word from the dictionary after adding it with the
cmd + fing the spell man page for "remove word" but found nothing.
