  • InDesign: Dynamic Spelling

    May 2nd, 2007 by Russell Viers

    Admit it…you’ve had an embarrassing typo in a project that sneaked through the proofers.
    Well, there’s no automatic way to keep you from writing about the pubic library, but there is a nice way to double-check your spell check.
    InDesign now offers Dynamic Spelling, which will let you check and correct your type as you type your type…hmmmm.

    You can turn this feature on in the Preferences>Spelling pane or under Edit>Spelling>Dynamic Spelling.
    Once it’s turned on, you’ll see your typos underlined in red (default color) and other errors underlined in green (default color).
    To correct spelling quickly, Control + Click (Mac) or Right Click (Windows) on the underlined word and you’ll see a pop-up listing all the possible corrections.
    If what you meant to type isn’t in the list, either the list isn’t as complete as I think it is or you need typign lesssonns.
