No word processor comes without a spelling checker these days, and Dreamweaver is no different. You can check the spelling on the currently open page and add words to Dreamweaver’s spelling checker in a personal dictionary.
To spell-check your page:
Choose Commands > Check Spelling, or press Shift-F7 (same on Windows and Mac).
If Dreamweaver finds a word it believes is spelled incorrectly, the Check Spelling dialog opens (Figure 4.40). Otherwise, you’ll get a dialog that says “Spelling check completed.”
Figure 4.40 Click Add to Personal in the Check Spelling dialog to add an unknown word to Dreamweaver’s personal dictionary.
Click Add to Personal if the word Dreamweaver found is correct and you want to add it to your personal dictionary so that Dreamweaver doesn’t flag it as an error again.
Click Ignore to tell the spelling checker to ignore this instance of the word, or Ignore All to ignore the word throughout the document.
Select a replacement from the Suggestions list, or type the replacement in the Change to text box. Then click the Change button, or click Change All to replace the word throughout the document.
- When the spelling check is finished, click Close.
