Hello guys,

I generated a new wallet this morning, wrote down the seed, entered the seed to confirm it, set the password and got access to my new wallet.
Now I wanted to move it to another machine, but my seed is not accepted (the Next button stays greyed out).

I'm a bit of a messy writer so to say, so I'm a bit confused about one word in my seed, maybe it's not what I think it is (I must be entering it incorrectly, I don't think something else is wrong). Tried with a few options but I can't get it right. I'm also not a native english speaker.

Anyhow, I'm looking for a word that starts with 's' and ends with 'ing', as far as I can tell the second letter should be either 'e', 'a' or 'u' and there are 3 (maximum 4) letters before -ing, including starting letter 's'. Tried saving, sewing, saying, seeing.
As I understand, the dictionary (from which the seeds are created) uses around 2048 words, so maybe some of you know some s starting words that are used in seed creation.

I can provide a picture, but I don't think that would be all so relevant.

Can anybody help me here Sad ?

Thanks in advance.

https://github.com/spesmilo/electrum/blob/master/lib/wordlist/english.txt < is this the words list?

spring or sibling are the only 6+ letter words I found that starts with an 's' and ends with 'ing'.
