Clearing Accidentally “Learned” Words from macOS Dictionary

Does this little moment strike fear into your heart?

Argahghg! Fat fingers! I meant to FIX the spelling, not learn this misspelled word!

Now forevermore, the spell checker won’t catch that misspelled word. Fear not, you can fix it.

When this happened to me recently, fortunately, Dave Bolger told me how to fix it.

@chriscoyier If you are on OS X you can easily delete those ~/Library/Spelling/LocalDictionary edit in text editor, log back in to reload.

I just popped open that file from the command line quick with:

$ sublime ~/Library/Spelling/LocalDictionary

If it’s not obvious, delete the words from that file you don’t want the spell checker to think are spelled correctly anymore, save the file, and you’ll be all set.

If you do it, did you find any weird ones in yours?
