Will this be an adjunct to your forthcoming ICCPIPRICR?

The icons suck at large size -- i'm hoping hamradio or someone else will make some new .icon files with 32x32 and 16x16 resolution.

on first use only I got an error (& crash) but no problems after a restart
there was a second error message but then it crashed before I could copy the other.

Seems to be working fine now after restart - I'll be using this one, thanks mouser!

by the way if you get sick of typing fspell you can go to advanced options for a plugin and change the alias trigger to something like fsp or even fs or s

So what do I set to get a numbered list of synonyms as in your example, rather than a list in parentheses?

Here's how it works: When you type in a word, it finds 2 dif kinds of synonym lists:

1. The type is shown all on one line -- that's what you have in your result, and it happens when the word youve typed is not a "head word" but merely in a list with others.  So your word is IN that list shown.
2. If you word is a "head word" then you get all of the results listed individually.  The easiest way to see this is to click (or arrow down and hit enTer) on that second result, which by default will change the word in the search to the head word, thus showing all the synonyms listed individually.

By the way the problem Tomos had with crashing is related to a known problem with an older version of the fsubscript.dll found in some other plugins.
See http://www.donationcoder....=9306.msg176615#msg176615 for more info.

Works well.
I was expecting the web look-up to appear within FARR so it took me a few moments to wake up to the fact that another tab had appeared in my browser.
Be nice if one could choose the web look-up site.
Be nicer still if it would call my online OED
Be nice when the dictionary knows how to spell. At the moment it seems to use some strange tongue called...  American!

The updater appears to have put this new version into a subfolder called FSubscript, while leaving the previous version in FarrSpell, which made for an entertaining few minutes.

Killed the FSubscript stuff, downloaded from your first-post link and extracted to FarrSpell -- no problem.

It would be helpful to me if you run the updater and right clicked on farrspell, and said to "install update" even though same version.
and see if the problem happens again -- it may have been because my initial release had a bad .dcupdate file.

that's why you can choose internal or web search.

agreed, i'll add this to advanced options.

readme points to additional dictionaries you can download and configure from advanced options, including some british dictionaries, etc.
