Egan Spell Check My ParametersWin64, English
General Usage Instructions
Once you install the app, it is called on demand as required by the user. To run the app, click the “Spell Check” icon on the Add-ins tab on the Ribbon.
Click the “Check Spelling” button to scan the file. The app will present the list of words that are not in the Spell Check dictionaries, allowing the user to select the appropriate action for each word. Some options on the “Spelling” tab include:
To help with fine-tuning the scan, the app presents a few filters:
You can choose to include Type Parameters, Instance Parameters or both.
You can choose to scan for a single Category or to exclude a single Category. You may want to limit the scan to a certain Category if you have been concentrating on that Category, for example, if you have been working on the Door Schedule or the Room Finish Schedule. You may want to exclude a certain Category, for example, Materials, which contain numerous made-up manufacturer and color names.
To help you identify the source of the word in question, the app displays Source Information.
Run Check Spelling on app startup
The app includes a check box to give you the option to Check Spelling on app startup. If you may want to run the same scan over and over, check this box. If you want to modify the search criteria frequently, you can leave this box unchecked.
Export Word List
The app includes a Button to export the list of words it has found. This can be helpful in identifying words to add to your Building Industry Dictionary and in setting up your spell checking system.
Click the “Settings” tab. The app has settings for:
Ignore words with numbers.
Ignore words with colons (":") The colon is used for the Material Asset Delimiter, producing hundreds of false positives.
The app uses the built-in Windows spell check process.
The app defaults to using the Revit “Building Industry Dictionary” and “Custom dictionary,” but these may be changed as desired.
Building Industry Dictionary
The Revit Out-of-the-box Building Industry Dictionary contains some standard abbreviations and some common building industry terms and names. For best results, this dictionary should be edited to include your company’s abbreviation list and terms and names appropriate to your business. In addition, this dictionary should be copied around to all computers in your office.
When you click the “Add” action, the app will add the current word to the Custom Dictionary. Any words added to the Custom Dictionary will remain and the app will accept that word until it is removed from the Custom Dictionary. Best practice would be to review the Custom Dictionary occasionally, add appropriate words to the Building Industry Dictionary and then clear the words from the Custom Dictionary. The app includes a “View Custom Dictionary” button and a “Clear Custom Dictionary” button to assist in this process.
The app is available as a Single Seat License that can be used on one computer, or a Network Floating License Seat, which may be used on any computer within a Local Area Network. The Network Floating License may also be used on a Wide Area Network, though performance may be affected by the speed and latency of the WAN. If you are not sure, contact us for help in testing your situation.
