Importing Into a Personal Dictionary

Importing lets you automatically add a list of words to a personal dictionary. To import terms, first select the appropriate dictionary from the list of personal dictionaries. Then choose File from the menu bar, and Import into dictionary… (on a Mac, click on Import… in the Action menu below the list of dictionaries). Antidote then asks for the location of the list to import. The list, in TEXT format, can be a simple list of words:

superhappy  [Carriage return]
unremember  [Carriage return]
...

It can also be a list of words followed by their syntactic category:

superhappy  [Tab]       Adj     [Carriage return]
unremember  [Tab]       Verb    [Carriage return]
...
  • Other information can also be imported. For more details, see Importation format (in the Documents folder in the Antidote directory on your hard disk).

The results of the import operation will be shown in a window. Antidote will tell you the number of words added, the number of words added that underwent morphological changes and the number of words rejected.

You can save the list of rejected words so as to edit them and import them later.

Antidote may detect missing information when it imports the file. If so, a yellow warning triangle will appear. Check whether the information that Antidote has automatically inferred and added is correct, and then click on the Accept inflection button.

For more detail on importation from TEXT files, see this documentation on various formats, like these examples:
