In this video we learnt to use one of the Spell Check features which is only available in the Wordlist window.

Open the Wordlist

  1. Open the menu for the project.
  2. Under Tools, click Wordlist.
    • The Wordlist window opens for this project.
  3. Open the menu for this window.
  4. Under Tools, hover over Spell Check to view the submenu.
    • There are 6 special spell checks listed here, or you can run them all at once.

To use the Common Typos

  1. Click Common Typos.
    - *The Wordlist enters a Spell Check mode showing probable Common Typos*.

    Paratext lists words containing a pattern of letters that was previously corrected in other words, along with a suggested respelling.

  2. Click on a suggestion.
    • Paratext opens the Replace dialog which shows each occurrence of the misspelled word and checks we want to replace it.
  3. Click ‘Yes’ or ‘Yes to all’ to make the replacement.

To return to normal mode in the Wordlist window

  • Click the blue command link Close Spell check (Common Typos) and show all words.
    • This switches off the Common Typos spell check.
