This category contains general settings.

General

  • Spell check as you type - This enables and disables the spell checker. Naturally, it is enabled by default. The spell checker tool window relies on this being enabled. If disabled, spell checking will be unavailable until it is turned back on.
  • Ignore words with digits - This will cause the spell checker to ignore any words containing digits. The default is enabled.
  • Ignore words in all uppercase - This will cause the spell checker to ignore any words consisting of all uppercase letters. The default is enabled.
  • Ignore .NET and C-style format string specifiers - This will cause the spell checker to skip text in .NET and C-style format specifiers (i.e. {0:MM/dd/yyyy} and %ld). This prevents the text within them from showing up as misspelled words. The default is enabled.
  • Ignore words that look like filenames and e-mail addresses - This will cause the spell checker to ignore words that contain periods and at signs with no intervening whitespace (i.e. Userinfo.config or auser@mydomain.com). This option can occasionally cause a misspelled word to be missed such as when a space is missing following the period in a sentence. However, it excludes far more false reports and is enabled by default.
  • Ignore words that look like XML elements in spell checked text - This will cause the spell checker to ignore words within angle brackets in spell checked text (i.e. "The <para> element creates a paragraph"). This option can occasionally cause a misspelled word to be missed such as when a space is missing following the opening angle bracket. However, it excludes far more false reports and is enabled by default.
  • Treat underscores as separators - This option is disabled by default and all words containing underscores will be ignored. Enabling this option will treat the underscore as a word separator and each word separated by the underscores will be spell checked along with all the other text.

Exclude by Filename Extension

This option lets you exclude sets of files from being spell checked by filename extension. Enter a space or comma-separated list of filename extensions in which to disable spell checking (i.e. .bat .ps1 .xyz). A period by itself with no trailing text will disable spell checking in files without an extension.
