Spell Checking

How do I get the spell checker dialog to appear?

To open the spell checker dialog window, use the “ABC” button on windows where it is available.  The spell checker window only opens if it encounters a mis-spelled word, so you may need to temporarily misspell a word to get it to open.

How can I backup my spell check user dictionary?  It is not in my NYC user folder so File… Backup… does not save it.

Spell check dictionaries are stored in your NYC \maindicts folder.  Using File… Explorer…, copy “userdic.tlx” and “correct.tlx” from your system folder to your NYC user folder just before you use File... Backup… When you restore these files, you will need to also manually copy them from your NYC user folder to your system folder.

I cannot find any Help on how to customize the spell-checker.  Where is it?

The spell-checker has its own help.  Do a spell check on a recipe (press the “ABC” button), then use the Help buttons on the spell checker window.  The spell checker window only opens if it encounters a mis-spelled word, so you may need to temporarily misspell a word to get it to open.

I selected Swedish for the spelling checker language, but I cannot see it affecting the result in any way. How does the spelling checker work? How should I check that it works?

 

Now when you spell-check a recipe, and a misspelled word is found (according to the Swedish wordlist), the candidate words for changing the misspelled word are in Swedish.  These show in the list on the spell check window when a misspelled word is found.

 

I am using the German dictionary for NYC’s spell checker.  The spell check does not seem to recognize the German word for sugar, lemon, and others, because they were without a first capital letter.

 

Try unchecking "case sensitive" in the spell check options (Tools... Options... Spell Check... Configure...).
