About Spelling Check
You can check the spelling of all text as it is entered in your drawing. You can also
specify the specific language dictionary that is used and customize and manage multiple
custom spelling dictionaries.
You can check the spelling of all text objects in your drawing, including
- Single and multiline text
- Dimension text
- Multileader text
- Text within block attributes
- Text within xrefs
With Check Spelling, your drawing or the areas of your drawingâ€™s text that you specify
are searched for misspelled words. If a misspelled word is identified, the word is
highlighted and the drawing area zooms to that word in a scale that is easy to read.
Check Spelling As You Type
By default, you can check spelling as you enter text in the In-Place Text Editor.
Any word you enter is checked for spelling errors when it is completed. A word is
considered completed when one of the following actions are taken:
- Pressing Spacebar or Enter
- Moving the cursor to another position within the In-Place Text Editor.
Misspelled words are underlined with a red dotted line
Any word not found in the current dictionary is underlined as misspelled. Spelling
suggestions are displayed when you right-click the underlined word.
The Check Spelling feature contains several main dictionaries, which are available
in different languages. You can also create any number of custom dictionaries and
switch between them as needed.
During a spelling check, the words in the drawing are matched to the words in the
current main dictionary. Any words you add are stored in the custom dictionary that
is current at the time of the spelling check. For example, you can add proper names
so they are no longer identified as misspelled words.
By default AutoCAD provides you with one sample custom dictionary that contains words
such as AutoCAD and Autodesk.
To check spelling in another language, change to a different main dictionary.
You can change dictionaries in the Dictionaries dialog box or by specifying the dictionary
name in the DCTMAIN or DCTCUST system variable. For a list of the main dictionary
file names, see DCTMAIN.
The filename for a custom dictionary cannot use any non-current code page characters
in its name. If you are sharing a custom dictionary between different locals or languages
do not use non-ASCII characters.
Create and Edit Custom Dictionaries
A custom dictionary is a list of spelling exceptions that you have identified. The
files that contain them have a .cus file extension. You can use any ASCII text editor to add or delete words, or combine
