Hello all,

 

I got some words one my documents that I say to the spell check ignore and the the red mark undernath the word disapear.

The I save the documen and when I going to see it again the same words again got the red mark asking for a spell check it's normal?

I don't thin it is it was suposse to save and ignore that word right?

    Michele,

     

    There's a difference between "Ignore" and "Learn", and that difference might be significant in this case. Why not "Learn" the unusual word so that it isn't flagged the next time?

    Thanks Jerry this partially solve my problem most of the word that the spell checking is marking to me it's ok to I click learn but some of then I really would like it to ignore is the case of "soooooooooo" in the document I go it is used to give  some dramatic figure to "so" but anyway your sugestion is perfectly fine.

    Just to clarify ignore spelling should be working anyway...

    Pages ignores it for the session in which you have it open.

     

    When  you reopen it, it asks again. It is the equivalent of "Not now". The alternative is to learn and add it to its user dictionary permanently.
