Depends on what kind of file the word resides in. If it's one that's not editable (not simply locked, but a format that's not human readable, like a Main Spellings file), you need to add the word to an Omitted Words file. Omitted Words effectively remove a word from a word list by causing Spell Catcher to always flag it as an error.

If it's a Learned Words or other human-readable/editable file, use Find in References to locate it, then just open the file and delete the word. If the file is locked, read this FAQ.

Of course you can create your own. Same as you would create a new document in any application - in the Spell Catcher application, File > New > Omitted Words (in this case).

Make sure to click the help (?) button to read more about this type of document - note specifically that omitted words are case-sensitive.
