Check Spelling...

FilledSmallSquare Check Spelling searches for the next misspelled word and brings up the spell check dialog box.

FilledSmallSquare When a misspelled word is found, it is displayed in the dialog box along with a list of suggested alternatives. Click a suggested word to copy it to the "Replace with:" field. Double-click a suggested word to paste it into the notebook and continue the search.

FilledSmallSquare There are several possible reasons for stopping at a word. The reason for stopping is given in a string at the top of the dialog box. Click "Skip These" if you do not wish to stop for the same reason again.

FilledSmallSquare To continue the search without replacing the selected word, click "Skip". Click "Add Word" to add the selected word to the dictionary. All future occurrences of that word will then be ignored.

FilledSmallSquare You can modify the conditions used for stopping at or skipping words by changing the settings for the options "Always Stop", "Always Skip", and "Word Splitting". To do this, click the Options button to open the Option Inspector at the scope specified by the "Store words and options:" pop-up menu.
