Checking for Spelling Errors

You can check for spelling errors when using the Project tab’s project spreadsheet or the Item Editing tab’s metadata editor.

If checking for spelling errors in the Item Editing tab, the spell check engine begins at the first metadata field.

If checking for spelling errors in the project spreadsheet, spell check starts at the first cell in the first record, moving from left to right until all cells are checked before moving to the next record.

As you are checking, add words to your user dictionary, which is stored in the same location as your project.
