To use the spellcheck functions, Pluto must have:

1.  The spellcheck data files present in the !Pluto.Resources directory.
    Th pe are the files:  Dict, DictSp1, DictSp2, DictSp3.
    (Th se are the same files that are used by the spelling checker in
     the !Speak application).

2.  The Speak module must be pr pent.

F9 key

Th  F9 key is used to open the spellcheck window.

If you are using "check as you type" then when an error is detected,
a beep will sound.  Press F9.  This highlights the bad word and
transfers the input focus to the spellcheck window.  You can then
simply pr ss Return to replace the bad word by the first item in the
suggestions list.  The up and down arrow keys can be used to choose
other words from the suggestions list.

User Dictionary

The User dictionary can be used to add additional words to the
spellchecker which are not recognised by its main dictionary.

You can view and edit the User dictionary by clicking the "Dict"
button on the spellcheck window.  This lists the User dictionary
using your default editor.  You can add or remove words from the
list, or import a word list from another file, and then save it.

You can also add a word to the User dictionary when it has been
detected as a "spelling error".  Click the "Add" button in the
spellcheck window to it to the User dictionary.

Abbreviations Dictionary

You can also use the User dictionary to specify an expansion for an
abbreviation.   Whenever you type the specified word, it will be
expanded into the full word or phrase.

To add an abbreviation to the User dictionary, open it by clicking
on the "Dict" button as described above.  Add the abbreviation
followed by it's expansion on a single line.  For example:

btw  by the way

will replace "btw" by "by the way" when you type it.
