            Bug ID: 3783
           Summary: Cannot add new dictionary
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: Claws Mail
           Version: 3.14.1
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Windows 10
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: UI/Compose Window/Spell Checker
          Assignee: users at lists.claws-mail.org
          Reporter: bob at blisworthhouse.co.uk

1. Follow procedure at
 Configuration/Preferences/Spell Checker/Get more dictionaries...
2. Place new  .dic and .aff files in 
 C:\Program Files (x86)\Claws Mail\share\enchant\myspell
(I used en_GB-oed from OpenOffice). 
3. Follow last line at http://www.claws-mail.org/win32/dictionaries.php  i.e. 
"Restart Claws Mail. Your new dictionary should be available in
Tools/Preferences/Spell checking." (Ignoring historical path e.g. Preferences
isn't under Tools)
4.  Configuration/Preferences/Spell Checker/  Spell checking enabled. But
en_GB-oed does not appear in the drop down list.

Workaround is to overwrite en_US with en_GB-oed.

UPDATE: the problem appears to be the "-" in the en_GB-oed file names. Rename
them to en_GBoed and it's all fine!
