User dictionary

Nebo's user dictionary* allows you to tailor its content to your own specific needs. There are two options available for adding words to the dictionary.

1. The first method to enter a new word into the user dictionary is:

  1. In the open note, long press the word you would like to enter.
  2. From the drop-down menu, select Learn "selected word".
  3. This word will now be added to your user dictionary, improving Nebo's chances of recognizing it the next time you write it.

2. The second method to enter a new word into the user dictionary is:

  1. Select Settings at the bottom of the notebook sidebar.
  2. Tap Dictionary in the settings menu.
  3. Now select + New word and then type your chosen custom word in the space provided. This word will now be added to your user dictionary, improving Nebo's chances of recognizing it the next time you write it.

If you need to remove or correct a word in the user dictionary, return to the dictionary sidebar:

  1. On the iPadOS, tap Select and then select the required word and select Delete
  2. On the Android OS, tap Select all and then select the required word, or long press the desired word, and select Delete
  3. On the Windows OS, tap Select and then select the required word and select Delete

You will then need to re-enter the word into the dictionary using either of the methods above.

Please note that it is not possible to upload multiple words to the user dictionary from a list or text file.

*Not available in the Nebo free version for iOS.
