Installing this plugin

This plugin is not shipped in any distribution. You must manually install it on an EasyEclipse distribution. No other installation will be needed, because this plugin has no dependencies.

Getting started

Help is available for this plugin, in the Help > Help Contents menu in EasyEclipse.

To access the spell checker, open the file to check; right-click in the opened editor view, and select Check Spelling. The Spell view opens and lists suggestions for each word not found in the dictionary.

By default, the spell checking is enabled for text files, but not for source files (C++, HTML/JSP, Java/Javascript, property files and XML). Those settings can be modified in the Preferences (Window > Preferences, Spelling tab).

Can’t install under Easyeclipse 1.3. Said “run preflight script for EasyEclipse SpellChecker 3.1.5″.

Hi there. Thank you for the support.
The dictionary works good but there are some issues. Assume that a method is named “priavteEvent” there is no red line under the method name which is correct but in the javadoc there is a red line under this camelCased word.
I could’t find any way to add new words to the dictionary…

The last and the most important issue that made me to uninstall the plugin is that it slows down my editor (specially the scrolling) so much that I couldn’t accept the lag anymore, though that I have SSD and 2GB dedicated RAM to eclipse (I’m using OEPE Kepler on OS X. )

Of course I meant “privateEvent” which shows that why I must use spell checker because I’m typing fast while coding and have always typos.
