I want to upload a list of words for quickcorrect

I have a list of words for quickcorrect that i want a group of our employees to all have. It would be a list of a several thousand. I found the .UWL file but have no software to edit it. What are my options?

Thanks, Ellen

Hi Ellen,

Welcome to the forums and thank you for your question.

The WT61XX.UWL cannot be edited directly, but there is a manual work around. On one workstation open the client, create a new mail. Place all your custom words into the mail and add them to Quick Correct. This should update the local WT61XX.UWL file. with the GroupWise client closed copy that file to the correct location on the other computers. That should work.

Please let us know how it goes.

Cheers,
Laura Buckley

Thank you for the quick response! When you say
"Place all your custom words into the mail and add them to Quick Correct." Can this be done in bulk or do i have to add one by one?

Thanks?

Hi,

Copy and paste the entire word list if you have it. Adding each word to the Quick Correct list would have to be done word for word I'm afraid!

Please let us know let us know how it goes.

Thanks Laura, one more question. Can a user have more than one .UWL file on their system. What if they had their own with the words that were important to them and then i shared the one i want to create as well?

Hi,

As far as I am aware you can only have one. The customer will lose their custom settings if you proceed down this path.

We, the community, are here to help and share experiences so please feel free to ask as many questions as you like 🙂
