Check Spelling dialog box

Use this dialog box to correct individual occurrences or all occurrences of misspelled words in selected objects or in the entire form, add words to your custom dictionary, create a list of words to ignore, and open the Spelling panel in the Options dialog box.

Note: By default, Designer checks the spelling in all of the text associated with the various objects in a form, such as text objects, captions, tool tips, custom screen reader text, list box entries. To control the type of text that Designer checks, you can select options in the Spell Check list in the Spelling panel in the Options dialog box. For more information, see Spelling (Options dialog box) .

To display this dialog box, select Tools > Check Spelling.

Not in Dictionary

For example, if the text for a tool tip contains a misspelled word, all of the text for the tool tip is displayed with the misspelled word highlighted (bold red). You can type directly in this box to make corrections. When you correct any of the text in this box, the bold red highlighting is removed from the misspelled word, and the Ignore Once, Ignore All, Add to Dictionary, Change All, and Undo buttons are unavailable.

Lists alternate spelling suggestions for the highlighted word.

Ignore Once
