Check Spelling

During a spelling check, AutoCAD matches the words in the drawing 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 that AutoCAD no longer identifies them as misspelled words.

To check spelling in another language, you can change to a different main dictionary.

There is no method for checking spelling provided in AutoCAD ActiveX Automation. However, you can specify a different main dictionary using the MainDictionary property, or a different custom dictionary using the CustomDictionary property on the Preferences object.

For more information about spellings checks, see “Check Spelling” in the User's Guide.
