The Spell Checker

The spell checker included with Help+Manual supports both manual spell checking (check topics or the entire project in a single session) and "live" spell checking, which highlights incorrectly spelled words as you type.

See Spell checking in the Creating and Editing Topics chapter for instructions on using both manual and live spell checking functions.

Open Office dictionaries

The spell checker uses Open Office dictionaries for spell checking and hyphenation. These dictionaries are free and are available for a very large number of languages.
