Hi does, anyone know how to turn on spell check for words that are written in upper case/ full capitalized?

i'm an architect and most of my text is written in uppercase but for some reason the spell check doesn't check words that are written in uppercase.

thanks

Yes, this seems to be a bug in the dictionary used by Acrobat oor lack of a feature.

 

The problem doesn't manifest if you spell, for example : THEMselves.  This is still incorrect , since the checker should catch that a whole word like "themselves"  should'nt by half upper case and half lower case.

 

However, if you spell "THEMself"  the dictionary used by the spellchecker will catch this, but it will not if you spell the same word in upper case: THEMSELF.

 

This is happening on my end even with all my latest updates applied to Acrobat and the OS.

 

The Adobe Acrobat or Reader doesn't have this built-in capability I'm afraid.

 

See these two discussions: 

 

You may need to create your own custom dictionaries using JavaScript or have someone customize it for you (paid-for).

I would suggest that you reach to try67 (in the links above) since he already created a cutom Acrobat spellcheck suite.
