In most Acrolinx Integrations, users can add words to one of several spelling exception lists, so that Acrolinx allows the spelling of the word under certain conditions.
There are three types of spelling exception lists available: "Document," "Guidance Profile" or "Target," and "Language," Each of these options can affect the work of other writers, so you should use them carefully.
For example, if a user accidentally adds a misspelled word to the "Guidance Profile" spelling exception list, Acrolinx will no longer highlight that misspelling when other users check using the same Guidance Profile. Similarly, changes to the "Language" list will apply to all users who check content in that language.
Because of this risk, you might want to restrict access to certain spelling exception lists. If you’re a Standard Stack user, you can restrict access to these spelling exception lists with a core server property.
If you're on an Acrolinx Private Cloud instance and are interested in these configurations, contact us and we'll set them for you!
If you're a Standard Stack user, you can edit the coreserver.properties from the configuration directory. Depending on your installation, your path might look like this:

guidanceProfile,document, which means that users can't update the "Language" list.
Save your changes and restart the Acrolinx Platform.
Ensure that users reopen their integrations to receive the new setting.
