SOLIDWORKS can check the spelling of the words in your document notes, dimension text, and drawing title block using a central dictionary. The Spell Checker is available with Microsoft Word 2000 or later. If a wrong spelling is found using the Spell Checker tool, you can replace the word using entries from Microsoft Word dictionary and SOLIDWORKS dictionary (swengineering.dic).

In order to check the spelling, go to Tools > Spelling:

The Spell Checker highlights the misspelled words and offers some alternative suggestions for these words.
