What do I need to do to reload a user's spelling dictionary.
Problem: the lists under 1 und 6 are the same, despite of the correct spelling that has been added to the dictionary in 4 and that is really showing up at 7. Same problem with doing a QA for spelling errors – the elements in the user's dictionary are not recognized.
I assume this is the problem to reload the user's spelling dictionary, but what do I need to do? Restart the whole system?
It works without problems here. Are you sure that user's spelling dictionary is saved with new entries?
If I remember correctly, when closing the tab (custom dictionary) CafeTran doesn't offer you to save the file first. Which it should, of course.
Well, I even did a restart of the whole Mac (latest Java release, El Capitán, but I remember the same thing for Yosemite)) and the words are inside the user's spelling dictionary – just as before – but again they are marked as spelling errors (by any means: underlined, in the list of unknown words and when running a "manual" spell check QA).
@Hans: After the point 4, I press always Cmd-S – pure instance – and indeed the file has been changed and remains changed, as mentioned above. By the way: When closing the list of unknown words, there is always the dialogue window if it should be saved. I do not know if this dialogue window is really necessary, but this is another question.
Eh, instinct, not instance ...
If there exists a user dictionary with your target language extension, it looks for user's words in this spell-checker dictionary.
You may not have installed the spell-checker dictionary for your target language on Linux. The implementation and the spell-checker files are exactly the same on both systems.
Verlängerungsstück is in the user-defined dictionary. The spell check is completed successfully, but it also does this after misspelling a word.

How did you add it to the dictionary? Via the right-click or editing the file directly?
I added them by editing the file directly (and closing it). But on the Mac I can see there also the last words I added by right-click, so it cannot be a read write problem (on the Mac, CT is in the programs folder, on Linux in the home/torsten folder).
The number isn't arbitrary: it's the number of lines minus one (for the header). The engine stops reading the list after the number indicated.
