Dict: create sub dictionary?

Is there a way to create a sub dictionary (other than editing the dictionary text by hand?) I have been through the help file and searched the forums, I even tried to look at the tutorial.

I’m sure it’s easy, I just missed the obvious somehow.

when you say sub-dictionary what exactly is it you mean? I’ve been playing with dict. for a project I’m working on and may or may not be able to help.

in the case of your posted patch you need to use replace not set for the message on the right. Then it will create the keys for you if it doesnt find them in the dictionary.
