Spellcheck your PDF documents

Spellcheck your PDF documents

Today, we want to tell you about one of our new features, the spilchecher, excuse me, spellchecker.

Quite often, when preparing a document or filling a form, we need to meet a strict deadline, so we become a nervous and cannot concentrate, especially when our colleagues are discussing something or the phone is incessantly ringing. As a consequence, we make typos because every now and then one of our fingers hits the wrong key and quite often we’ve got no time to proofread the document. The only thing that can save us is a good spellchecker.

At PDFfiller, we always strive to improve our product. To exclude a situation where our customers send out documents containing any typos or mistakes, we’ve integrated a spellchecker into our PDF editor.

Please note, that our spellchecker checks only what you type. We presume that the original blank document you have to fill contains no mistakes, because authorities and agencies usually prepare their forms with due diligence and care.

The spellchecker immediately underlines misspelled, unknown or uncapitalized words.

You can activate the spellchecker at any time before or after you start typing. Click “turn on” button in the main toolbar. The spellchecker panel will appear below the main toolbar, click on the toggle.

TIP. If you learn any of the above-mentioned languages, you can use our spellchecker to check your written exercises. If you need to send an email to your foreign friend or partner, you can also check your messages before sending them.

To correct a word, right-click it and choose its replacement from the drop-down list.

However, it is not always the case that an underlined word is incorrect. The spellchecker underlines the words that it does not recognize. If the word is spelled correctly, you can add it to your dictionary. The spellchecker will recognize it next time you type it.
