The MapSpeller™ Error Editor is very flexible and powerful
with three primary purposes:
- Editing an error using the keyboard. This would be needed, for example,
if the word's
context menu didn't offer the wanted replacement word.
- Replacing all occurrences of the misspelled word in the target
container by the typed-in word. The word can
be geographically bound
- Adding the edited word to either:
- A personal dictionary
- A personal Locationary™ at
the location of the word in the highlighted blue row of the
Potential Errors dialog
- A personal Locationary at the locations of all
geographic occurrences of the misspelled word that it replaces.
The occurrences of the word outside of maps (if any) are not added
to Locationaries as they don't have a meaningful geographic
Replace a Single Word
Replace All / Add to Dictionary
The following dialog shows how all occurrences of a spelling can be
replaced (ESRI being replaced by Esri), and how to add the correct
spelling in the logged-in user's personal dictionary.
Add to Personal Locationary
The "Replace it by" word can also be added to the personal locationary
at one location or all the locations where the "Misspelled word"
appears. Not that the "Misspelled word" should be interpreted as
"Potentially misspelled word". The "Replace it by" may or may not be the
same as the word in the "Misspelled word" text box.
When proofing tables outside of an edit session, the
Error Editor won't let users replace words. However, the dialog is
still useful for adding correctly spelled word to a
dictionary or Locationary.
