Spell Check and Automatic Corrections

You can use Zoho Writer's spell check -- enabled by default -- to find misspelled words and see suggested spellings. Words with spelling suggestions are automatically underlined in red. Simply right-click an underlined word to see the suggested correction and replace the misspelled word. Zoho Writer uses contextual spelling suggestions to try to figure out which words you meant to type based on the content in your document. Sometimes we’ll even make suggestions for valid dictionary words if we think it’s much more likely that you meant to use a different word. You can turn off the spell checker by deselecting Show spelling suggestions from the View drop-down menu.

To use the spell check tool:

  1. Right click on the misspelt word that is underlined in red
  2. The drop-down menu will show you alternatives to the word you misspelt
  3. Select the right option and the misspelt word will be be replaced with the correct word
  4. If you want to the spelling error to be ignored then click on Ignore. The red underline will not show
