How to find all words whose spelling is incorrect?

Post by Debugger » Sun Mar 17, 2019 11:26 am

Emeditor

Edit -> Spelling -> Check Spelling

How to find all words whose spelling is incorrect (highlighted in red).
Currently, I do it manually, scroll the text and check, but I can not do it with very large text (this makes it difficult!)

It is not that hard to find out (btw i'm not a EmEditor user)... but anyway

Tools->Properties for Current Configuration->Display->Incorrect Spelling

On the right choose background color and text color accordingly.

vanisk - I know it! :) But you did not answer the question of how to search for words with incorrect spelling in the text with millions of words :?:

My bad :?:

In your question, u gave importance to (highlighted in red).

I know there is a limitation in MS-Word for spelling errors, if it exceeds, it displays "too many spelling errors" and it wont show any spelling errors.

idk if there such limitation in EmEditor too, Not able to find that in their help page. Will let u know, if i find any.

[Edit: Just now checked with 12 million lines of text and spelling errors highlighted so far..]

Well, I have highlighted red, it's obvious, after all.
And what should I do about it? Scroll through the text and look for each subsequent highlighted text? Game of cat and mouse. It is impossible to point out ONLY all the words highlighted in red and omit all others good spelling?

I'm lost now.....

I quite didn't understand your expectation. Did u mean, u want to list only misspelled words (hiding all others)? or you want to auto-correct them?

In total, as you say, that's what I mean.
I write my own elaborates and I have spelling checker enabled, but I simply can not see something by accident and it would require correction (though not in all words, because some may contain the correct spelling if there are no words in the dictionary, eg difficult words).
Of course, ONLY manual correct,
in no case Auto-correct. :)

We can jump to misspelled words by using Control+M (forward direction, or Shift for backwards).

For correct spelling and not in dictionary word, we can either select Ignore All or Add it to dictionary.

@vanisk - Looks very good.
CTRL + M
But I still encounter some obstacles. I have many Russian words (which, of course, are also highlight because I have a Polish-language spell checker).
That's why it would be good to add Russian letters to exclude, check (i.e., CTRL + M), I would have to omit checking for Russian words, and focus only on Polish language.
Example:
1. женственность
2. Kobiecość jest osadzona w najbardziej kobiecej esencji: w łasce, uroku
