Using the Spell Checker

Enterprise Architect has an inbuilt spell checker, which you can configure to detect a range of types of possible spelling error in your project, and to use one of several language dictionaries other than English.

Access:    Tools | Spelling Tools | Spell Check Project
                  Tools | Spelling Tools | Spell Check Current Package

How to:

To run the spell checker, follow the steps below:

Select the Spell Check Project or Spell Check Current Package menu option, as required

The Spell Check dialog displays



(Spell Check Project option) Select the checkbox against each of the items to spell check within your model



Click on the Start button to begin the spell check

As the spell check proceeds, the text being checked displays in the text panel at the bottom of the screen; if an error is detected, the Check Spelling dialog displays, offering several options to correct the error

Correcting Words


  • The Spell Check Project menu option enables you to check spelling for the entire project
  • The Spell Check Current Package option only checks the package currently open, and does not enable you to select items to check
  • Enterprise Architect currently supports checking an entire model or a single package; a future release should support more detailed spell checking at the element and diagram level
  • 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
