Define a List of Sheets 

Ideate SpellCheck can check all of the Sheets within the Revit project or a pre-defined list of Sheets. To create a list, use Revit first to create a Sheet list. The Sheet list could be defined in a way that excludes certain sheets such as cover sheets or sheets with abbreviations.

Edit View Title and Sheet Name

The View Title and Sheet Name values are not currently checked by Ideate SpellCheck when they are part of a Sheet. You can still check these by making a View or Sheet List in Revit. After creating the list, you will be able to select this as a Schedule during SpellCheck and the data will be checked. For the View List, consider including both the “View Name” and “Title on Sheet” properties for if appropriate.

NOTE: Legend Names are not included in a View List and will be ignored.

Add Standard Abbreviations to the Dictionary

To get the most out of Ideate SpellCheck, you may want to add your standard abbreviations to the Revit custom dictionary. This will cause the known abbreviations to be ignored by Ideate Spellcheck.

Begin by opening up a file where you can copy (Ctrl+C) the known abbreviations to the Windows Clipboard. Next, follow the Autodesk instructions for editing the custom dictionary.
