Multi-Task Editing

Thursday, January 7th, 2010 by | Filed Under: MS Office Help

Ever find yourself running a spell check on a document, slide or email only to notice a different error nearby… one that Spell Check isn’t going to help you fix?

What did you do?

Most people believe that they have two options:

#1 Stop the spell check, fix the error and then restart the spell check.

#2 Try to remember (or write down) the exact location of the error so that you can go back to it later.

Either way – my sentiment is “Ew”. That’s way too much work!

If your sentiments match mine then you’ll be happy to know that you don’t have to choose either option.

You can actually multi-task at this moment.

If you notice an error, besides the one spell check is currently on, then go fix it.

Simply click into the text and edit… even with the spell check dialog box still open.

When you’re ready to resume spell checking go back to it and continue on as though there were absolutely no interruptions.
