Alternative spelling checker

According to the info supplied at your spelling engine supplier's website, Wintertree Software, Wspell should be configurable for standard MS Word dictionaries. How do I go about configuring CityDesk/Wspell to use my MS Word dictionaries?

"The first thing to note is that we claim WSpell works with other applications' user dictionaries. We have been very careful to always qualify "dictionary" with "user" when describing WSpell's capabilities in our Web pages and programmer's guide. WSpell cannot use Word's (or any other application's) main dictionary for technical and legal reasons."

So its important to realize that WSpell would only be able to use the dictionaries with words that you added to the word dictionary. 

Unfortunately in CityDesk 1.0 we don't support adding extra user dictionaries.

Well could we get it to start at the cursor position in the meantime? And check the selection only, if there is one?
