Spell Checking

Oxygen XML Author includes an automatic (as-you-type) spell checking feature, as well as a manual spell checking action to open a Spelling dialog box that offers a variety of options.

To manually check spelling in the current document, use the Check Spelling action on the toolbar or from the Edit menu.

The Spelling dialog box contains the following:
Unrecognized word
Displays the word that cannot be found in the selected dictionary. The word is also highlighted in the XML document.
