RichTextBox: Support for different file formats in RadDictionary (used in SpellCheck)
Support for file formats other than .TDF is required, so that a broader range of dictionaries can be used. Consider adding support for OpenOffice dictionaries.

The feature is implemented and will be included in our upcoming 2016 R3 release.

You could create your own custom spell checker which uses many dictionaries. If some word does not exist in one of the dictionaries, you could check the others. You have to implement the ISpellChecker interface. Please note that the methods called GetDictionary and GetCustomDictionary have to return null. In order to use the custom spell checker you have to use the following code: this.radRichTextBox.SpellChecker = new MyCustomSpellChecker();.

I think this is a good step but what we really need is the ability to have multiple dictionaries active at the same time, not just one. We thought about working around the need for multiple active dictionaries by combining all of our custom dictionaries with the Telerik base English dictionary from the website into a single 380,000+ word dictionary and using that but there is no way for us, at runtime, to convert our Word custom dictionaries to .tdf format so that we can concatenate all of these dictionary files together. Our custom dictionaries are unique to each client and are downloaded from our server so we can't use the Dictionary Configurator web application and the conversion methods called by the Dictionary Configurator are not available in your WPF product. This would solve our problem if we could download the Telerik base English dictionary as a word list so we could concatenate it with our custom dictionaries to create a single spell checking dictionary.
