[Printer Icon] Print this article

Click the spell checker (  ) icon to turn the automatic spell check function on or off. Click the down arrow to select a different language's dictionary. You will see wavy, red underlining for words detected as potentially misspelled or not found in the loaded dictionary. If you resume typing text, the spell checker function switches off.

Right-click an underlined word to view a menu, allowing you to:

  • See a list of suggested correction.
  • Ignore the single instance.
  • Ignore all occurrences of the indicated word.
