I'm looking for a way to spell-check a Rich Text Document created with Wordpad on Windows 7.

I know no such feature exists within Wordpad, so I'm looking for workarounds. (I do not have a copy of Microsoft Word either.)

Simply pasting the text into an online spellchecker will not work, as I need to retain all the RTF data, like colors fonts and font size.

Does anyone know a way to do this? THANKS

  • "I'm looking for a way to spell-check a Rich Text Document created with Wordpad on Windows 7." Use an Rich Text Document editor that has a spell check feature, lots of free open source solutions exist, I won't make any specific recommendations for obvious reasons. The provided link offers non-software solutions though – Ramhound Jun 21 '17 at 23:46

    "If you don't see the spell check icon in the Rich Text Editor controls, then your administrator has disabled the intranet spell check in favor of using the built-in browser spell check. Chrome, FireFox, Safari, and some versions of Internet Explorer have built-in spell checkers that will underline misspelled words as you type. Press the CTRL key (or Command key) and right-click on a misspelled word to see a menu that includes spelling suggestions" - directly from the linked page.... – Ramhound Jun 21 '17 at 23:48

    If you're asking for software suggestions then it's off-topic. Ask on softwarerecs.stackexchange.com instead. And there are tons of free spell-checking products out there. Libreoffice is also free, no need for MS office – phuclv Jun 22 '17 at 4:26

    Stating a problem along with what you have tried so far and then getting a recommendation for a product is okay, but specifically asking for us to find software to perform a task is off topic. That is what people mean. Tell us about your journey, don't just ask for places to go. – Mokubai Jun 22 '17 at 7:04
