Spell Check Whole Page

Run spell check on all text layers in the page.

Displays a basic panel that allows users to replace the misspelled word or add it to the dictionary, or ignore it.

Uses macOS's built-in spelling features and dictionary to do this.

The problem

Spell check isn't available for all text layers at a time. If you're using Sketch as a replacement for Illustrator or InDesign, you really miss the ability to automatically spell check everything everywhere.


To install it, simply download the zip and double-click the “.sketchplugin” file. You can access the plugin via the Plugins menu. You’ll know it's worked when you see the notification at the bottom of the screen.

Here’s a screen capture of the plugin in action:
