I'm finishing a thesis and have used Microsoft Word to write it up. My issue is that I quote a lot, often embedded in a sentence; this means that I often have to use square brackets to get rid of capitals or to change the tense of words.
EG: "As Dodgson claimed in his diaries, "[y]esterday was so cold".
The problem is that "esterday" isn't a word so the spellchecker picks it up. Whilst I can just zip through ignoring these words I have no way of knowing whether I've actually misspelt "yesterday", e.g. as "[y]estreday".
I know I can check these words manually but there are a LOT of them and I'm not 100% accurate. Does anyone know of a way of getting the spellchecker to ignore the square brackets so that it 'sees' "yesterday" rather than "[y]esterday", therefore picking up on any misspellings?
