QuickSpell
How to enable QuickSpell?

QuickSpell is designed to add advanced spell checking to MobiSystems OfficeSuite, but can work as a standalone Spell-checker on devices with Android 4.0 and higher. In order to work as a standalone application, you need to have access to the default 'Android Spell Checker Settings' in the 'Language & input' settings screen on your device. On certain customized Android distributions, like for example Samsung's TouchWiz UI, this setting is not available.

In order to make sure QuickSpell has been installed and setup correctly, please make sure the following steps are performed:

  1. On the initial QuickSpell screen, you'll see an 'Enable Quickspell' checkbox, which will activate QuickSpell in all of your Android typing dialogues.
  2. Tapping on 'Dictionaries' will let you select dictionaries for which to enable spell checking. You can download any number of dictionaries that you want to use, but please note that you can have only one active at a time.
  3. Generic usage outside OfficeSuite - Go to Settings-> Language and Input-> Spell Checker, and choose QuickSpell. Now Quickspell will work seamlessly in all edit fields (such as in Contacts, Email, Calendar etc.) and third-party products (e.g. Evernote) on your Android device without additional settings.
  4. Usage in OfficeSuite - Open any .doc file and select Review from the Drop-Down Menu and locate the Spell-check icon. Make sure that it is enabled and active. Incorrect words will be automatically underlined in red.
