Checking the spelling

 

You can check the spelling of text in your drawing, customize the dictionary to recognize new words, and use a different spelling dictionary that supports another language.

 

Checking the spelling of text

 

You can use the Check Spelling command to check the spelling of single-line text, multiline text, paragraph text, attributes, attribute definitions, and dimension text.

 

To check the spelling of text

 

Do one of the following to choose Check Spelling:

 

  • On the ribbon, choose Annotate > Check Spelling (in Text).
  • On the menu, choose Tools > Check Spelling.
  • On the Standard toolbar, click the Check Spelling tool.
  • Type spell and then press Enter.

 

Select one or more text entities.

 

In the Check Spelling dialog box, misspelled words display one at a time. Do one of the following for each found word:

 

  • Keep text unchanged — Click Ignore to keep the found word unchanged in the drawing, or click Ignore All to keep all instances of the found word unchanged in the drawing.
  • Change text — Select or type a word in the Suggestions box, then click Change to change the found word in the drawing to the new text, or click Change All to change all instances of the found word in the drawing.

 

Click Add if you want to add the currently found word to a list of custom spelling words. The Check Spelling dialog will recognize the added word as spelled correctly the next time the word is checked for spelling.

Customizing the spelling words

 

Most drawings contain text that is not recognized as spelled correctly, even though it is spelled correctly. For example, if your company name Zaffer, Inc. appears in all of your drawings, the company name will appear as misspelled every time you check the spelling of drawing text. You can easily add words to a custom dictionary so that any word in the custom dictionary is recognized as spelled correctly.

 

The custom dictionary is independent of any spelling dictionary you have chosen to use. You can check the spelling of text using one dictionary, check the spelling of the same or other text using a different dictionary, and in both cases your custom dictionary is used.

 

To create and manage a custom dictionary

 

Do one of the following to choose Check Spelling:

 

  • On the ribbon, choose Annotate > Check Spelling (in Text).
  • On the menu, choose Tools > Check Spelling.
  • On the Standard toolbar, click the Check Spelling tool.
  • Type spell and then press Enter.

 

Select one or more text entities.

 

In the Check Spelling dialog box, click Change Dictionaries.

 

To add a custom word, type a word in Custom Dictionary Words, then click Add.

 

To delete a custom word, select a word in Custom Dictionary Words, then click Delete.

 

Click OK.

You can also add custom words to the custom dictionary during spell checking of text.

 

In the Check Spelling dialog box, click Add to add the currently found word to the custom dictionary.
