Launching a SPELL CHECK of all text
Hello again everyone.
I try to avoid disturbance when writing and then CHECK SPELLING option is OFF as I am writing.
When I activate the Check Spelling option later, it doesn't start to check all the text. I have to select each word manually so it can be automatically checked and underlined in red if wrong.
Would anyone know a WORKFLOW able to LAUNCH A FULL CHECK SPELLING of the entire document ?
Thanks in advance for any help you can provide guys and girls.
I had attempted this before:
Thank you, but I tried it but it doesnt work for me. It makes something very different that the the automatic spelling check underligning wrong worlds in red.
Do you think it is something possible to achieve (launch a regular check spelling of full document) someday or do I have to find an alternative solution (like copying finished work in WORD or PAGES only for chez spelling?)?
Idealy I would really prefer to do almost everything in Editorial.
Thank you in advance for your further answer or help.
A database of all words in a given language (Language Dictionary) is one thing that is needed to make a spell checker.
The link I posted provides some actions that uses code found here. It could be turned into a full spell checker.
You might consider using Workflow with Editorial though.
@adiosx Are you in the Editorial 1.3 beta?
TO OMZ : Hello, I am on Editorial 1.2.1. The one I found on App Store.
In fact I didn't ask for a new spell checker as a new workflow. I was just asking if it was possible to use the regular Spell Checker Tool in the Editor in another way than checking word by word as writing.
For me it was something I would have found practical (and which depens on the langage used by the system).
But if I need to use a spell checker Workflow as you advise me, I will of course gladly do it.
@adiosx Okay, first off, this is currently not possible in Editorial. The reason I was asking about the beta is that it would be possible to implement a Python-based workflow that does what you want in the next version (which is currently in beta).
If you use this signup form, I could send you a TestFlight invite and post a workflow here that would spell-check the entire document. That workflow would only work in the beta though (or the next update, when it's out).
OH. Thank you for your answer.
Is that possible to keep and use both Editorial 1.2.1 and 1.3 beta on the Ipad?
No, that's unfortunately not possible, the beta would replace the App Store version.
@omz May I ask for the mentioned workflow?
I work several hours every day on EDITORIAL at the moment. And I have a big thing to finish soon. I would be happy to test the beta and help improve but this is the moment I really need a perfectly stable tool, and a beta may not be as stable as the present version.
Maybe I will wait for the next version official.
The present version is already an amazing tool for me and I can wait till the next version easy and I will be glad to discover all the improvements.
Is there a link to a preview of this next release, where I can find Infos, list of improvements and release date?
