DetailsDetails

  • The following suboptions can be specified:
  • "AlwaysSkip"{"SingleCharacterWords", "Numbers", "WordsWithNumbers", "WordsInAllCaps"}criteria for skipping words during a spell check
    "AlwaysStop"{"UncapitalizedStartOfSentence", "RepeatedWords"}criteria for stopping a spell check
    "WordSplitting"{"Hyphen", "Underscore", "InternalCapitals"}whether compound words of a given type should be split before being tested by the spell checker
  • is given as a list of conditions to be tested. If a word being tested satisfies any of the conditions, the spell checker skips that word. This option allows you to customize a spell check to ignore certain types of words.
  • The settings for override those for if the same condition is specified for both options.
  • The default setting is .
  • Possible settings for are , , , , , , , , , , , , and .
  • is given as a list of conditions to be tested. If a word being tested satisfies any of the conditions, the spell check stops at that word. This option allows you to generalize a spell check to search for errors other than ordinary spelling errors.
  • The default setting is .
  • Possible settings for are the same as for .
  • When the spell checker encounters a compound word of a type specified in , it splits the word and tests each of its component words separately.
  • The default setting is .
  • With the setting , the spell checker will attempt to split up compound words even if they are not internally capitalized or hyphenated or have no underscore. For example, "shortstop" could be tested as "short" and "stop".
