Does anybody know what brazilian portuguese dictionary is Scrivener using right now?
Mine has been suggesting corretions that actually are not longer applicable for more than 10 years.

Any way to fix that? In Calibre I use a LibreOffice free dictionary, if I could upload it to Scrivener, it would be awesome.

Which version of Scrivener are you using: v 1.9 or v. 3 Beta? If the latter this should be in the Beta Testing forum.

That said, I believe v. 1.9 uses Aspell, while v. 3 uses Hunspell, so it'll be one of their dictionaries, If you search the threads you'll find posts on how to change dictionaries—I'm a Mac user so can't give you the answer.
