Users can not save their custom words in a Word 2013 dictionary.
This problem was observed after moving App Data from UNC redirected folders to a VHD disk or a Mapped Drive in a non-persistent environment)
The end users can not add any new words to the dictionary, and that option is also grayed out.
When files migrate form one folder to another the folder in a target location is missing files that are required to run Word's dictionary.
However, this dictionary can be recreated by removing a registry key at logon.
When Microsoft Word opens, the keys get recreated. From that point on it is possible to add new words to the dictionary
As a workaround, please create the following App Launcher rule.
Filter: (your choice)
Arguments: /c REG DELETE "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Proofing Tools\1.0\Custom Dictionaries" /f > c:\windows\test2.txt
Timing: After Configuration Execution
Hide Progress: True
Run Async: False
Frequency One Time (User)
Tracking Path: (Enter the user profile's path)
NOTE: in the script Arguments (see above) there is an optional entry that only confirms that the script ran c:\windows\test2.txt
NOE: This article can be used to delete any key of your choice only once at logon.
