If you set your view larger before running spell-check, it will help.
That being said, I would like to see the spell-check window show a portion of the sentence containing the misspelled word in context. Some programs I've used do this, and it's a great help.
It's not just you, but as SRiegel recommends, I find it helpful to zoom in on the first paragraph of my document before launching spell check. As suspect words are found, they will come into view at that same zoom level, although you may still have to move the dialog box out of the way to see one or the other, depending on what part of the spread is targeted.
Yes, thanks for responses. That does help but if changing a word affects line breaks it can sometimes go unnoticed lower down a column if you're zoomed in too close I've found. Even then I had a spelling error in a sideways picture caption today and for the life of me I couldn't spot it, this was a tiny detail on an A1 poster so about worst case I guess.
A refined spell check highlighter would be much appreciated in CS7
Just automate your spell checking!
No hunting required. Double-click in the panel and the error is selected.
Forgot the $200 price to accompany that automation, Heath. Jeez...
Hate to point out that Word includes this functionality by default.
