Hello all, I just switched over to Carlson Survey 2020 from Civil 3D 2018. One thing I can't seem to find on Carlson that Civil did was if I misspelled a word in Civil in any text or Mtext it would put a squiggly line under it, Carlson does not. Is there a setting that I missed when setting up Carlson??
When you are within the text editor command right click and check the box in Editor Settings.
not seeing much in editor settings
Same, I see
"always display WYSIWYG"
While editing you text, on the contextual menu, select spell check.
@douglas-w-chinn yes i know that one, but in Civil 3D it has a constant running "proofing" just like when you type in Word, even this page. If you misspell a word it puts a red line under it(see highlighted words below) and you can right-click and it will pull up suggested words. I don't have that option when running Carlson and was wondering if it was an option.
For everyone running Carlson....Try this and then run spell check on just these words.....
Let me know if it finds the misspelling......
Be aware, Carlson is not a CAD engine, and it runs in several different flavors. You can run Carlson on an AutoCAD OEM, full blown AutoCAD, or Intellicad. I say this because I have the options for Editor Settings on my installation (full blown). I'm just now returning to Carlson so I'm not a Carlson expert (C3D is my preference).
Besides informing us of your CAD engine, you can also check your mtexted command to see what editor is specified. Mine is set to none. You might also check what dictionary is specified.
I did try your spell check test and it did find the error and had suggestions.
@blitzkriegbobwell that sucks, hahaha, thanks for the help
Im running on intellicad. Bound_Hound posted that based on our pm chat.
I noticed spell check didn't recognize the misspelling of separately. So i tried multiple variations of the word separately. (seperately / separrratley / separatelyyyy.
etc. all versions spell check did not recognize as misspelled. 😯. I usually dont spell check individual words usually the whole dwg. Now wondering what other words are not detected. Randomly tried the word water with 2 t's (watter). 😵 Same deal "spell check complete"
Tried this in 2020 & 2019 both with intellicad. 🤪 what gives
I confirmed the behavior and have reported to the Carlson programming team for a solution. I did, however, configure my version of Carlson 2020 to make use of NotePad++ (IMHO, a great ASCII file editor) so that when I double-click on my MText, it's editor and/or built-in spell-checker offers various suggestions:
Enter new value for MTEXTED, or . for none <"internal">: "C:\Program Files\Notepad++\notepad++.exe"
Multiline Text: First corner for block of text:
(double-click on MText)
I hope this information helps.
