    spell check limitations (2003)

    My two finger typing makes too many mistakes that arn't easily handled by spell check. For instance, i just typed a message with "decided" to be the intended word. But I goofed and typed "de ided". Spell check recognized the ided wasn't a word and suggested alternatives, but accepted the de. In order for me to correct the error, I closed the message, made the correction and clicked to send again. Not that may not be the best example, but I do it enough to be frustrating. sometimes I'll have an equal (=) sign in the text and have to close out. Is there a way to make the corrections without closing the message and restarting the spell check?

    The spell check is not very flexible. Unless you build your own spell checker or purchase an add-in, there's no way to change what is selected for checking or to edit the message behind the dialog.

    You could use F7 to call up the spell checker rather than starting a send. Perhaps that would be a little bit less stressful. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Thanks for the suggestion with F7. That makes life a tad simpler and, at least, tells me to quit looking for a solution that doesn't exist.. You guys ( moderators) are on the ball.
