  • You can use the Spell Check Project menu option to check spelling for the entire project
  • The Spell Check Current Package option only checks the Package currently open, and you cannot select items to check
  • In the Corporate, Business and Software Engineering, Systems Engineering and Ultimate editions of Enterprise Architect, if security is enabled you must have Spell Check permission to perform any spell check or change any spell check options
