[Solved] Spell Checker and time numbers seperated by a colon

Postby Guy... » Fri May 18, 2018 12:55 pm

Is there a way to make the spell checker ignore numbers like 12:15, 17:40, etc.?

Thanks!

G'day, and welcome to the community forum.

Go to Tools | Options | Language Settings | Writing Aids and under Options uncheck Check words with numbers

I've glanced at this option but didn't think to uncheck it because there aren't any words/letters.
Anyway, thanks for the quick response! :)
