How to add words to ms word dictionary in os x?
I have the latest word for os x?
When I try to add a word (that is underlined as misspelled), I can't seem to do it. The 'add' button in spell check is grayed out. I went into the settings and didn't see anything besides a 'custom dictionary' feature that I fiddled with but didn't want to enable or create just for a few words (like the spelling of my last name, biological terms not in the dictionary, etc.)

Any ideas? Has anyone ever had to add a word to the dictionary before?
EDIT: I didn't realize I had only posted this last night, sorry for the too early bumping here...I'm not sure how to delete this post.

If you assigned the custom dictionary a language, then Add may be grayed out because the language assigned to the word does not match the language assigned to the dictionary. The custom dictionary does not require a language, and if you don’t assign a language, the custom dictionary can mix together words of any language. For that reason, set the language of the custom dictionary to “none” whenever possible.

Add a Word in Word Dictionary Grayed Out!
I can now add all the words to Word that I can re-word, word. Four year old problem with a modern day solution. Time travel is awesome. This did the trick, I created a dictionary, closed out, and then could add to my heart's delight from within the document as I mentioned above. Grayed out "add" button is gone, squiggly red lines under perfectly normal words are gone.
Life has new meaning.
Thank you 2008 poster.
