in A5v5 Home, using the spell checker in the Tools menu, words that are added to the dictionary do not appear in the dictionary and some words that are in the dictionary are not picked up during a run of the spell checker, even after restarting A5.

Is there a size limit for the dictionary file? What is the file name for the dictionary?

The dictionary is just a database so there shouldn't be any real limit. It's the A_case.dbf found in the A5v5 executable folder.

The A_Case file has nothing to do with the spellchecker.

Words added to the spellchecker dictionary are stored in userdict.txt.

There is no limit to the size of the spellchecker dictionary, due to a limitation of the third-party spellchecking software we use, words added may not appear as suggestions.

Would that also explain why the checker flags a word as misspelled even though it has been added to the dictionary?

What is the limitation of the third party software and is there a work-around?

Hard to believe, but I don't have any file named userdict.txt anywhere on my machine. Could it have a different name?
