…If you want to avoid painful reviews…on Amazon, or any other bookstore you're publishing…to, then one of the things, you should…certainly do, is to spell check, your manuscripts.…Poor spelling looks amateur, and it's picked up on really quickly by readers.…Hopefully, you will have already done this, when you were…writing your original manuscript, in whatever program you were using.…But it's still worth a final check, especially if you've…been adding content into the ePub as you've been building it.…If you've ever used a spell checker in a program like Microsoft Word or Adobe…InDesign, then you're not going to find it any more difficult than that in Calibre.…
To do this, we need to be in the Editing Work Space.…If you're not in that already, and you're…inside the Book Browser and Library, then you…can go to a title, right-click, and choose…Edit Book to get into the Editor Work Space.…Once there, there's an icon at the top here to check the spelling.…You can click.…The spell checker will launch, like so.…And then you can see the words, which it considers misspelt inside of there, okay?…
