Using the Spell Checker

You can spell check the entire document, part of the document, or selected text.

To spell check the whole document

1 Click a blank space in the Drawing Window to deselect any objects.

2 Click Text, Writing Tools, Spell Check.

The misspelled word appears in the Not Found box. The most likely correction appears in the Replace With box. A list of other possible replacements appear in the Replacements box.

3 Choose the correct word from the Replacements list to display it in the Replace With box, if required.

If necessary, type your own correction in the Replace With box, and press ENTER.

4 Click one of the following buttons:

• Replace — replaces the highlighted word in your document with the word in the Replace With box

• Auto Replace — replaces all instances of the same error in your document with the word in the Replace With box

• Skip Once — overlooks this occurrence of the word, during this spell check, and moves to the next word

• Skip All — overlooks all occurrences of this word during this spell check

To spell check part of the document

1 Select a text object with the Pick tool.

2 Click Text, Writing Tools, Spell Check.

3 Choose an option from the Check list box.

4 Click the Start or the Resume button.

To spell check selected text

1 Select the specific word or words with the Text tool.

2 Click Text, Writing Tools, Spell Check.

• The Spell Checker can't correct words used in the wrong context. For example, if you type "she had too apples" instead of "she had two apples, the Spell Checker doesn't indicate that the word "too" is an error.

• You can spell check the whole document after it has already been verified by choosing Document from the Check list box.
