Use this page to control the behavior of the Spell Check tool. When you create any document, you must choose a default language for use during a spelling check.
Note: These options do not apply to Japanese, Chinese, and Korean content since the Developer does not provide spelling dictionaries for these languages. During spell check, the Developer ignores any document that has a Japanese, Chinese, or Korean Language property.
Ignore words in UPPERCASE: You can choose to have words that appear in all uppercase letters be identified as errors or ignored.
Try to split compound words into individual words: The Spell Check tool identifies compound words as errors. You can choose to have the Developer try to split such terms into individual words.
Custom dictionary: As content authors work with the Spell Check tool, they may want to add words to a custom user dictionary. This dictionary allows authors to indicate words that should not be identified as misspellings during future spelling checks. By default, all content authors working with a shared installation of the Developer use the same custom dictionary, Userdic.tlx. Content developers do, however, have the option to create their own custom user dictionaries, to add dictionaries used by other content authors, or to remove dictionaries. If you want to create a new dictionary for use during spelling checks, you can do so. Creating your own dictionary allows you to control which words are identified as misspellings during your spelling checks without affecting the userdic.tlx list used by all content authors.
Another content author may have already created a dictionary file that you want to use to check the spelling of content as well. You can easily add an existing dictionary to the list of lexicons used in the Spell Check tool. The existing dictionary file is not required to be a .tlx file.
You may decide that you do not want to use a custom dictionary that you have added. You can easily remove a lexicon file from the list of dictionaries you use with the Spell Check tool. Removing the file does not delete the dictionary file from the location where it is stored; it simply removes it from the list of files you can use during a spelling check.
