Say goodbye to spelling mistakes in Google Sheets with the new Spell Check feature

For the majority of us fast typers Spell Check plays an important role spotting our mistakes as we type.

Luckily for us Spell Check has finally been added to the new Google Sheets. Spell Check with Google Sheets behaves just the same as it does with Docs or Slides. You can choose to check your entire Sheet, individual worksheets or even columns and cells. Here’s how to spell check your Sheet:

  • Highlight the cell range or columns you wish to check
  • Click the tools tab and select Spelling
  • Google will identify any mis-spellings
  • Click change, ignore or add to dictionary

If you are working with a Sheet created in the old version of Google Sheets, Spell Check is also available, in a slightly different format. After you choose Spelling, a pop up box will open - simply click on the identified mis-spelling and choose from a list of suggested corrections.
