    Spell Check is not working

    In text notes, the spell check is not working at all. I would expect that with the settings (see attached) that it would underline misspelled words in red, but it's not.

    Please see attached for my settings

    Thats not a logical expectation, sorry.

    Spellcheck is a command in Revit. It doesnt auto-underline in red like other software.

      Why is that not a logical expectation? Revit and (oddly Adobe Creative Cloud) is the only software that I can think of that doesn't have some sort of in-line spellcheck - even autocad has an option to display the squiggly line.

        That was my thought as well.

          Maybe I worded that poorly. Sorry about that.

          What I meant to say was: Spell check currently doesn't (and never has) worked that way in revit. It's a command that you run, that then identifies misspellings. Similar to how it was in MS Word before the red squiggle showed up.

          I guess what I meant was, you can "expect it," but it isn't broken: it just doesn't work that way currently. :shrug:

            I see what you mean. Good to know that it's explainable and not a glitch. Thank you for your response.

                  Spell Check also only works on "Text" Text.
                  Doesn't delve into Tags or Keynotes (Or one other thing I can't think of right now)

                    Red squiggles aren't half as annoying as blue ones.
