Add to ignore list ... problem
« on: July 20, 2006, 09:41:04 am »
Dear Kirk,

every time, under winXP when I restart the 4.4.3.1, I get all the words already added to the ignore list in a previous session (IPTC panel) red underlined again.
BTW is it possible to have also an own personal list?

Sincerely Yours - Tiberius

PS Thanks for the User Manual!!!

Hmm...  They're not sticking for me either.

The words that you add to your custom dictionary do manage to stick around.  So you can always add them to the custom dictionary.

I'll look into the ignore list and see how that is handled and why it isn't persistent.

...sorry but I donīt see any option for a "custom dictionary" either. only "corrections" and "ignore list".

and I have also problems to select in the Printer Settings under "Color match to" my own paper profiles (.icm) generated with x-rite - they just donīt appear!?!

Thanks in advance - Tiberius

Tiberius,

...sorry but I donīt see any option for a "custom dictionary" either. only "corrections" and "ignore list".

Photo Mechanic creates the user dictionary in the following location (yours will be slightly different)

C:\Documents and Settings\<user name>\Application Data\Camera Bits, Inc.\Photo Mechanic

in a file called UserDictionary.dic

Check to see that the path has been created and that the file exists.  If it doesn't, then is there a permissions problem on your system?

It is likely that your profiles are not stored in the default location.  In the print dialog, you can click on the "More..." button to pick a folder containing your profiles.  If you do this and your profiles still don't show up, then I'll need a sample profile to take a look at and see why we don't "like it".

Hello Kirk,

I have created the UserDictionary.dic file by hand and now it pops out as described. Basicaly we could define in the same place an IgnoreDictionary.dic file?!?

As addendum I attached the *.icm profile file created with x-rite pulse.

In the printing process under windowXP I donīt get the preview screen with the "softproof" button; is it available only for macs?

Sincerely Yours - Tiberius

Something like that.  But I haven't been able to get the spell checker SDK to make the Ignore words persistent even for me.  I am in talks with the developer right now.  Nothing to report as yet.

Did you try using the "More..." button in the Printing dialog?

I don't know what you mean by "softproof" button, but if you mean the "Preview" button that appears in the Print Job dialog, then yes it is a Mac thing.

As for your profile, I analyzed it and found that it doesn't use a description tag that we know how to parse yet.  It uses a multilingual tag.  I have modified our code to use the filename of the profile as a last resort when we cannot extract the name from the profile itself.

What you would currently see for your profile is an item in the popup menu that is blank.  This will change in the next update to show the filename instead.

Hello Kirk,

yes I used the "More" button but ... regarding "my" printer profiles indeed I get a lot of blank positions in the popup menu. Could you please be so kind and suggest a workaround/patch solution until the next dump is ready.

Thanks for your help and have a nice day! - Tiberius

Unless you can save your icc profiles out in an earlier format like 2.0 instead of 4.0 then there is no workaround until the next update.

Kirk,

from the color management point of view donīt make any sense to regenerate profiles into a weaker, inconstant standard.

Thanks again for your attempt!

Yours - Tiberius

Oh, it's not an attempt.  It is fully fixed for the next update.  There is just no current workaround.
