Checking spelling

This documentation describes how to check spelling in a structured text editor.

The structured text editors for markup languages (accessed from the Project Explorer's pop-up menu or by clicking the Source tab in certain editors) provide a spell checking feature.

To check spelling in an HTML, XML, or other file that uses a structured markup language:

  1. (Optional) To select the dictionary that will be used, click Window > Preferences > Spell Check .
  2. Open in a structured text editor the file whose spelling you want to check.
  3. Start the spelling checker by clicking Edit > Spell Check .
  4. Type a new spelling into the Change to field, or select one of the available options. Click the Change button to change the current instance of the word in the current document. Click the Change All button to change all instances of the word in the current document. You can also click the Add button to add the currently selected spelling to your dictionary.
  5. Use the controls in the Spell Check dialog box to ignore, change, or add terms to the current dictionary. (To remove a word after it has been added to the dictionary, click the Dictionary push button.)
