This tab sheet shows you a list of fields in which you can enter the strings/characters that are used for spell-checking. These options are format dependent. Select the format that you want to edit, or type the name of a new format in the field near the top of the tab sheet.

End of word characters
Characters that indicate the end of a word. Note that the TAB, CR, LF and EOF characters are not in this list, but are automatically added by 4Spell.
Word punctuation marks
4Spell uses a two-step approach for spell-checking. First words are generated by looking at a string of characters delimited by "End of word characters". These words can contain punctuation marks. The "Word punctuation marks" is a list of punctuation marks that are stripped before and after a word. E.g., the word "123Hello456" will be stripped down into the word "Hello". The word ";world," will become "world" etc.
Subword punctuation marks
Words can contain one or more subwords and these subwords can contain one or many subword punctuation marks. E.g., the line "\textbf{Hello, how are you}" will yield the word "\textbf{Hello" and the subword punctuation marks will break it down into the subwords "\textbf" and "Hello".
Start parameter character
A character that indicates the beginning of a parameter.
End parameter character
A character that indicates the end of a parameter.
Command character
The character that indicates that the subword is a command (and thus skipped during spell-checking).
Comment character
The character that is used to indicate the start of a comment.
Verbatim commands are started and ended by a special character. This list shows all possible begin and end verbatim characters.
Special characters
Especially TeX gives special meaning to certain characters. Here you will find a list of these characters.
Language switch
The command that is used during spell-checking to switch from language. If e.g., you specified "%4language=" and somewhere in you document the string "%4language=dk" is encountered, 4Spell will switch to the language "dk" (Danish) at that point.
