Work With Spelling Dictionary

       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.

TIP You can also add custom words to the custom dictionary directly during spell checking of text. In the Check Spelling dialog, click Add to add the currently found word to the custom dictionary.
