How To Use Ideate SpellCheck for Revit

Topics in this Section

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.

Spellcheck All View and Sheet Names

Ideate SpellCheck can check errors that are found within a Revit Schedule or any that exist within a text element. It will not catch a spelling error with a view title, title block or tag unless that same data also exists within a schedule that can be checked.

To ensure that all view and sheet names are properly spelled, create a view list and add the sheet name and view name properties, as shown. Do not forget to also include the “Title on Sheet” property if that is being used within the project.

Spellcheck Revit Sheet and View Names with Ideate SpellCheck

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

Add Standard Abbreviations to the Revit 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.
