How (if possible) may one share one's MS-Word spelling dictionary with multiple, LAN-connected computers so that words added to the dictionary from any of the computers will automatically be available on any of the other computers. Example: On computer 1, the user adds the word "grimblefritz" to the dictionary. A couple of minutes later, the user of computer 2 types the word "grimblefritz" into a new document, and the automatic spell checker considers the word to have been spelled properly because it finds it in the dictionary from when the user of computer 1 added it. Thank you.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You can place the MS Word dictionary file in a common location like a network share, and configure each machine to use that dictionary as the default. The dictionary files can be modified, added, and removed in Tools -> Options -> Spelling & Grammar -> Custom Dictionaries.
