Overview An introduction to MicroSpell—basic stuff about opening, spell checking, and saving documents.
Spell Check Dialog Lets you check your document one-word-at-a-time. More intuitive but less efficient than using the Inbox (below).
Main Edit Window Displays your document and contains a toolbar and menu commands for opening and saving documents, spell checking, setting fonts, colors, and other preferences.
Inbox Wherein you can review all of the suspects at once and correct the misspellings. More efficient than using the Spell Check dialog, especially when there are many suspects.
Outbox Which shows a history of your Inbox and Spell Check dialog actions for follow-up commands, review, and undo.
Document List Dialog Which holds a list of documents to be checked, or which have been checked. Shows word counts and other statistics for checked documents. See also: Add Files to Document List Dialog
Replace/Lookup Dialog Enables you to look up any word in MicroSpell's dictionaries or via the web, obtain additional guesses, correct misspellings, create auto-corrections, save any word in any user dictionary, edit words before saving them, find out which dictionary contains a particular word and (optionally) jump there for editing, easily adjust the capitalization of words (for correction and disambiguating certain letters).
Dictionaries Dialog Where you drag-and-drop words to save them, or open, close, edit, add, remove, merge, and create new dictionaries. See also: New Dictionary dialog and Dictionary View/Edit dialog.
Hotkey Spell Checking Whereby MicroSpell "grabs" text from another application, corrects it, and returns it to the source.
Problems, Tips, and Techniques Advice for using MicroSpell effectively and solving some common problems.
