JS Error when adding new words to computer dictionary

Steps to reproduce

Starting from scratch, what are the steps to make the bug happen? The fewer the steps, the better.

  1. Type a word that’s “incorrectly” spelt
  2. Right click
  3. Add to dictionary

Expected result

What do you expect to see after carrying out the steps above?

I’d expect the word to be added to dictionary

Actual result

Instead of the expected result, what happened?

A JavaScript error occurred in the main process

Same problem. I’ve wanted to post exactly this issue and here you are)
Guyz, this post was added in May. Now it is November

I see that’s an Electron error. You have to re-install the Dynalist app from the website download. That’s the only way to update to the new version of Electron. Idk if that fixes this particular error but it has fixed similar in the past.
