It was possible to use a self-made “user.dic†in OOo until know. You only had to
create a txt-file (with ends on .dic) with a sorted word list and the number of
words at the first line of the file. In order to import this “user.dic†you only
had to put a link into the “dictionary.lst†(e.g. DICT de DE user).

But know in OOo 2.4.0 this does not work. Every time OOo crashes. Therefore you
have to delete the connection to the “user.dic†to work normally with the OOo
Writer. That is a pity.

Is this a bug or a changed “functionality�

With best regards

It's not longer a problem! I've found out, that you should create not only an
"user.dic" but also a suitable "user.aff" file with affixes. You can just copy
such an .aff file from a proper dictionary (with the same language) offered in
the OOo-Package and put it to "...\Programs\ 2.4\share\dict\ooo"
as well. - Now OOo should work!

Because I haven't had such a problem in the Program Versions before (just a new
own "user.dic" was enough), I guess there must be a change within the source
code respectively functionality of OOo 2.4.0.
