The Spell Check preferences panel is opened from menu Options > Preferences > Editor > Spell Check.
The following options are available:
Spell checking engine - The application ships with two spell check
engines, Hunspell and Java spell checker. Each engine has a
specific format of spelling dictionaries. The languages of the built-in dictionaries of the
selected engine are listed in the Default language options
Note: In case you configured an additional location for the dictionaries that Oxygen XML Editor uses, the
Default language option collects the languages both from the
default and additional locations.
Automatic Spell Check - When enabled, the spell checker highlights
the errors as you modify the document.
Select editors - Allows you to select the file types for which the
automatic spell check takes effect. File types in which automatic spell check is generally
not useful, like CSS and DTD, are excluded by default.
Spell check highlight color - Use
this option to set the color used by the spell check engine to highlight spelling
Default language - The default language list allows you to choose
the language used by the spell check engine.
Use "lang" and "xml:lang" attributes - If enabled, the contents of
any element with one of the lang or xml:lang attributes is
checked using a dictionary suitable for the language specified in the attribute value, if
this dictionary is available. When these attributes are missing, the language used is
controlled by the two radio buttons: Use the default language or
Do not check.
XML spell checking in - These options allow you to specify if the
spell checker will be enabled inside XML comments, attribute values, text, and CDATA

capitalization errors, for example a word that starts with lowercase after etc. or

check words containing digits (e.g. b2b).
Ignore Duplicates - When enabled, the spell checker does not signal
two successive identical words as an error.
Ignore URL - When enabled, ignores words looking like URL or file
names (e.g. www.oxygenxml.com or c:\boot.ini) .
Check punctuation - When enabled, punctuation checking is enabled:
misplaced white space and wrong sequences, like a dot following a comma, are highlighted as
Allow compounds words - When enabled, all words formed by
concatenating two legal words with a hyphen (hyphenated compounds) are accepted. If the
language allows it, two words concatenated without hyphen (closed compounds) are also

concatenating a registered prefix and a legal word is accepted. For example if mini-

registered file extensions (e.g. myfile.txt, index.html, etc.).
