If you are new to Sublime Text, one of the most powerful text editors on both Windows and macOS Operating Systems and are looking for "how to do spell check", here are some two ways you can do it,

Using Keyboard Shortcut: F6

  • Open your file in Sublime Text, or be on the tab you want to spell check on.
  • Now press F6, you should see all mis-spelled words be highlited in red.
  • If you press F6 again the red highlighting will disappear - so it works like a toggle button.

  • You should see all mis-spelled words be highlited in red.

Use keyboard shortcuts to move to next and previous misspelled words:

  • Use Control + F6 (Command + F6 for macOS) to move to the next misspelled word.
  • Use Control + Shift + F6 (Command + Shift + F6 for macOS) to move to the previous misspelled word
  • You should see all mis-spelled words be highlited in red.

You can right-click on the misspelled words and look for the correct words from the dictionary, or even add or ignore the word (example names or code syntaxes) dictionary.
