About Spell Check

You can use the following spell checking features, based on your built-in and custom dictionaries:

  • Spell Checking While Typing This feature lets you keep a close eye on your spelling as you type in your topics. Questionable words are underlined with a jagged red line. By right-clicking on a word, you can select an alternative spelling, ignore the spelling warning, and add words to a global or project custom dictionary. See Spell Checking While Typing.
  • Spell Checking Manually This feature lets you open the Spell Check window pane and perform spell checking for files. As questionable words are identified, you can select an alternative spelling, ignore the spelling warning, and add words to a global or project custom dictionary. See Spell Checking Manually.
  • Adding Words to the "Ignore" Spell Check List This feature lets you add words to the Ignored Words Editor (which can be opened from the Tools ribbon). This means that if other occurrences of the word are found in any other files in future sessions, they will not be flagged as questionable spellings. This is similar to adding words to a dictionary. The difference is that this feature simply ignores questionable spellings of certain words, whereas a dictionary also lists spellings as suggestions. See Adding Words to the Ignore Spell Check List.
