Add learned shortcut to language specific file

There's no (truly) obvious way to otherwise set this "default" reference. When a default reference for a particular language is not set, Spell Catcher will pick the first one matching the language that is editable.
To actually set the reference you want to use (for the language you're using at the time), you pretty much need to do it from a window or other user interface element where you can choose the reference to add to. This includes the Suggest Spelling Window, Check Selection window or Find in References window. You only need to do this once for a given language, so if you're using the Pop-Up Suggestions List, try choosing the Suggest Spelling Window command from it, then choose the reference to add to, then add the new word or shorthand.

However, as a possible suggestion, wouldn't it be more logical to do this in such a way that Spell Catcher *first* looks at a language specific reference, and only add it to the global one in case there is no such reference defined? At least in my experience, shortcuts are language dependent 90% of the time, so for me it would make sense to go from "most specific" to "least specific".
Just a thought, not sure if my workflow matches that of other users.

As for your workflow matching that of others, well, I honestly don't know. I don't think there are many customers making use of the "Available in any language" feature for a sort of "global" reference.
Maybe some other reader will chime in here.

As for a global shortcut list; I use it for generic things like my phone number, address, social security number, that kind of things.
