Visualization – Spell Checker

Spell Checker underlines the misspelled words inside the code editor. It can check spelling in strings, comments, XML comments, and HTML elements against a built-in dictionary. Spell Checker provides an easy way to fix the error using the Refactor! popup menu or a smart tag:
