Spell checking with external ignore list #1111

When a new word is added or ignored, the main preference configuration file is modified. Convenient as it is, the configuration file becomes filled with these word lists over time. Is it possible to point the word lists to an external file containing the words? Like the way vim does?

That should be possible, yes. Try if creating a Preferences.sublime-settings in a different location (different package or subfolder in User package) works for you.

New words added from the context menu will continue to be added to the default file in the User package either way.

This issue is related with the behaviour of settings that any "automatic edit" will be written to user/Preferences.sublime-settings the workaround is to put your user preferences in another folder like UserZ/Preferences.sublime-settings and let user/Preferences.sublime-settings to be a kind of "external ignored list", but anyways, I think this is a good request, Dictionaries, and spellchecker stuff should be on its own package and settings in my opinion.

There are two related settings that grow very large:

  • added_words
  • ignored_words

It would certainly be good if these words were loaded from a different location other than the preferences file.
