Spelling and Grammar
The spell check starts at the current cursor position and advances to the end of the document or selection. You can then choose to continue the spell check from the beginning of the document.
Spell check looks for misspelt words and gives you the option of adding an unknown word to a user-defined dictionary. When the first misspelt word is found, the Spell check dialogue box opens.
If a grammar checking extension is installed, this dialogue box is called Spelling and Grammar. Spelling errors are underlined in red, grammar errors in blue. First the dialogue box presents all spelling errors, then all grammar errors.
Mark Check grammar to work first on all spelling errors, then on all grammar errors.
