Spelling & Grammar

The automatic spellcheck that is visible when working in the browser or desktop app is your browser or system's real-time spellcheck. WriterDuet defaults to your browser or system's spellcheck. 

For quick access to this and similar features, add the Analysis widget to your layout.

To edit your browser's spellcheck, see your browser's settings.
