In this course, author James Fritz shows how to create HTML-based websites with Muse—a toolset familiar to anyone who has used Adobe Photoshop, InDesign, or Illustrator. The course covers the design process from start to finish, from setting up web pages and populating them with graphics and text, to creating dynamic menus and adding special features such as widgets, slideshows, animations, embedded video, social media integration, and more. James also explains how to create an alternate layout for display on mobile devices, publish and update your site, and view analytics on web traffic.
Even though images may be worth a thousand words, one misspelled word can leave a significant negative impression on a visitor to your website. While it is always important to proofread your copy before you put it on your site, it is useful to use Muse's built-in spell-check as a safety blanket to catch any last-minute typos. You'll notice on this page there are various locations where the text has red squiggly lines underneath. That means that this particular word isn't inside Muse's built-in spell check.
If we don't want to see this because we just happen to be designing, we can turn this on and off by going to Edit > Spelling. You can also use the keyboard shortcut Command+Option+I or Ctrl+Alt+I to toggle this on and off. For now we're just going to keep this on. Using the built-in spell check is relatively simple. It works just like you'd expect in other applications like Word or TextEdit. All I have to do is just double- click to switch of the Type tool. Now, you can either select the word or just have my cursor anywhere inside it, and then just right-click and it will give me a few different options.
In this case I know that it's opinion, so I'll switch it to opinion, and there we go. It's been fixed. If your spelling is too far off, you might have to actually type out the word a little more or go to Google or a dictionary to find it correctly. Now, you might come across a word that is spelled correctly but it isn't inside the dictionary. This is really common with the name of companies or a person's name. In our case, SAMOCA isn't in the dictionary, but I don't want to see this red squiggly throughout my entire site, so I'm just going to select this word, right-click, and choose Add to Dictionary.
As soon as this is added to the dictionary, throughout my entire site, I will no longer see the little red squiggly. Just be careful when you add a word to the dictionary, because at the moment in this build of Muse, it isn't possible to remove a word from the dictionary, so be very careful about deciding to add a word. On the other hand, if there is a lot of words that you come across frequently in your industry that aren't in the dictionary, be sure to add them. Now, this dictionary is unique to Muse. It's not connected to InDesign or the local operating system dictionary.
It's independent and works only with Muse. But if you do use another document, the word will be inside that dictionary too. Even though the original text you get for your website might be error free, there is always a chance for an additional edit when you're working on the design. While Muse's spell check might be basic, it's still a very important tool to use before you publish your site.
