I Came, I Saw, I Learned…: Adobe FrameMaker 10: Auto Spell Check: “I can’t tell you how many times my Adobe FrameMaker students ask where the ‘red squiggles’ are when we start the lessons on text editing.   In my humble opinion, there’s not a whole lot to like about Microsoft Word, but I have to admit that I do use Word for writing, primarily to take advantage of Word’s automatic spelling and grammar checks. I encourage my students to continue writing and editing in Word for the same reasons, before importing their docs into FrameMaker.   Even though FrameMaker was initially conceived as a 3-in-1 program (word processor, illustration and page layout), let’s face it, most people use FrameMaker because it excels in technical document layout, but FrameMaker does not excel in word processing or illustrating.

The good news is that the new Adobe FrameMaker 10 offers Auto Spell Check, and with it, those beloved red (and green) squiggles.   “
