I am not absolutely sure, but I don't think so. If I get some time later, I will poke around, but I am pretty sure it is not exposed to ExtendScript.

re: is there a way to automate spelling checker with ExtendScript ?

What version of FM?
(recent versions have live spell-checking
in addition to the classic Edit » Spelling Checker dialog)
What is it you desire to automate?
(that ☑ Automatic Correction doesn't do)

Hi,

 

I do not know, if this is what you mean:

In the Spelling Checker pod you can write all words that are unknown to a file. (Dictionaries | Write All Unknown Words to File)

Then open this file with a text editor, correct the words and then import into your personal dictionary.

 

This is explained in the online help:

Best regards

Hi Winfried,

 

thanks for the reply.

I need to automate spelling checker process - ex. changing spelling checker properties, importing personal dictionary and starting checker and reporting all the spelling errors in the log file.
