Configuring Spelling and Grammar Options
Ignore Internet And File
By default, the spelling checker ignores Internet addresses,
file path names, and e-mail addresses. For example, text such
as C:\clients\microsoft and www.microsoft.com is
automatically ignored by the spelling checker. If you prefer to check
these types of elements, clear the Ignore Internet And File
Addresses check box.
Flag Repeated Words
Ignores repeated words. For example, if you select this
option, the spelling checker does not lag Walla Walla as a
mistake. (Interestingly, if you use WallaWalla , it is lagged as
a spelling error and the proposed suggestion is Walla Walla .
