Spell Check in Illustator

I'm not sure how many others require this, or if it can be found elsewhere, but I often need to spell check a selection, not the entire document.


A couple methods:

1.  select and hide everything else and hide the selection.  Spell check only runs on what is visible.


2.  Edit your text in a specific layer or sublayer, or just expand the layer to see the target text.  Option-click (or Windows equiv.) the eye icon in the Layers palette.  Everything else disappears.  run spell check on the visible text. 


Unhide or option-click the layer again to show everything else, and continue working.

Of course, this could be action based (select inverse, hide, spell check) and accessible via hot key.


I hope this helps others.
