Correcting Your Spelling Errors
Word keeps a dictionary in its hip pocket, which is a good thing for you.
Who wants to be embarrassed by a spelling error? Word consults its
dictionary when you enter text in a document. To correct misspellings, you can
either address them one at a time or start the spell checker and proof many
pages simultaneously.
Don’t trust the smell checker to be accurate all the time. It doesn’t really
locate misspelled words — it locates words that aren’t in its dictionary. For
example, if you write “Nero diddled while Rome burned,” the spell checker
doesn’t catch the error. Nero fiddled while Rome burned, but because diddle
is a legitimate word in the spelling dictionary, the spell checker overlooks
the error. The moral: Proofread your documents carefully and don’t rely on
the spell checker to catch all your smelling errors.
Correcting misspellings one at a time
One way to handle misspelled words is to use the one-at-a-time method of
spell-checking. As shown in Figure 5-1, you can right-click each word that
is underlined in red and choose a correct spelling from the shortcut menu.
After you choose a word from the shortcut menu, it replaces the misspelling
that you right-clicked.
