  • Spelling Engine
    The spelling engine of MS Word is not always the best performer and can identify wrong spelled words as correct. Also, most spelling dictionaries in other languages than the official MS Word language have to be bought from Microsoft.
    This option makes it possible to use the Hunspell engine. See Appendix → Hunspell
    Word supports custom dictionaries with correctly spelled words. The default custom dictionary can be specified here and a new one added if required. The pencil will enable editing of the dictionary and the button will add the custom dictionary to Word so the Word spelling procedure can use it. A restart will be required before the Word spelling procedure can use the custom dictionary. A restart is not required for the spelling procedure of the add-in.
    • Ignore words in UPPERCASE
      This is a Word setting that can also be found in the Word Options. If enabled, words in UPPERCASE will not be checked for spelling. This is true for both the Word spelling procedure and the add-in spelling procedure. Disabling this option is strongly recommended.
    • Ignore words that contain numbers
      This is a Word setting that can also be found in the Word Options. If enabled, words that contain a number will not be checked for spelling. As this can occur due to OCR errors quite often, disabling this option is strongly recommended. This is true for both the Word spelling procedure and the add-in spelling procedure.
    • Ignore Internet and file addresses
      This is a Word setting that can also be found in the Word Options. If enabled, internet and file addresses like URL’s will not be checked for spelling. This is true for both the Word spelling procedure and the add-in spelling procedure.
  • Font Settings
    The word list in the Check Spelling procedure can sometimes be hard to read. Therefore there is an option to use Monospaced Fonts for this list. This helps the readability of the wordslist. The dropdown box will be filled with only Monospaced Fonts. The fontsize can be set between 8 and 16. An example is shown to see the chosen font and size.
