3. Getting Started with Custom Dictionaries
To get started with the custom dictionary functionality:

- Type a dictionary name (the dictionary name should be unique and use only Latin characters or/and digits);
- Add or copy/paste the words separated by space or comma that you want to appear in the dictionary.
Each unit in a dictionary is a separate word which can contain language-specific letters and digits. Don't use any specific symbols (e.g. math symbols) in the dictionary as it will fail to compile and won't work eventually.
