I am improving the British speller for Mozilla and AOO/LO.

Version: 2.48 — 1.May.2017
An open-source tool coded in PureBasic for editing the Dictionary/Thesaurus/Hyphenation/Autocorrect files of OpenOffice/LibreOffice, Firefox, Thunderbird and SeaMonkey, provided they are in UTF-8 format.
This program was originally developed to easily edit the synonyms of OpenOffice and LibreOffice.
I had this idea after asking to the persons in charge of the pt_PT project, from Minho University in Portugal, what I should do to suggest synonyms since only suggested words for the Portuguese speller were added.
I was told that they didn't know how to add synonyms since the guy in charge of that project left it long-ago (2006).
Later, I wanted to make it compatible with Firefox and Thunderbird, after it became possible to edit dictionaries. I hoped that in the future someone would use it in Thunderbird and fix the en_GB speller which was full of typos and missing words. Since no one volunteered, I took this task myself.
This is where my idea came from: develop something easy to use since I tried some official tools for the tasks and I didn't understand anything on them, not even how to use them.
My tool is so intuitive that even a child can use it.
On 25.Aug.2013 I released a "forked" en_GB speller V2.00. The speller has been made available to OpenOffice/LibreOffice, Firefox, Thunderbird and SeaMonkey. So far, I have added 28'629 words (as of V2.48).
PTG — Update:
I have removed V2.3 from the downloads since it is outdated and beta 3.0 is very stable and a lot better.
For "AFF Aid" codes, in the first line of the codes, use the standard:
On build 105-109:
— Added recursivity to dictionary word decoding (tested with twofold);
— Support via coloured symbol for NOSUGGEST in words editor;
— Fix: Changing the GUI resolution in the PREFS would reset the .AFF EditorGadget;
— Improved: If a code isn't found in the .aff it no longer exits the decoding function.
On build 101–104:
— GUI improvements and fixes;
— It is now possible to have custom "AFF Aid" files with 16x16 PNGs flags;
— Support for FLAG NUM and LONG (no recursivity yet);
— Modern menus look for Windows;
— Pop-up menu now has an extra option "Clone" (very useful);
— Major speed gain in the .AFF optimising code (gl_ES).
On build 100:
— Improved the GUI a lot, allowing multiselection of items and choose 1024x600 or 1280x600 window size.
— Allow undo/redo.
PTG — Known issues in Linux:
PTG V3.0 build 104 (PureBasic 5.60) fixed most GTK3 issues but there are still some gadgets with wrong text alignment.
PTG V3.0 build 90 fixed the performance issue. I use dynamic arrays to store the words instead of placing the whole list in ListIconGadgets, and I show the entries 13 (customisable) words at a time. Most operations are ultrafast with the new code.
