Revit Tip / Tutorial - Spell Check Entire Project

Such a dumb little wishlist item... Really Autodesk?  You are telling me you can add conceptual massing to Revit but you can't make the Spell Check search the entire project?  I am sure you can have an intern code that one...

Anyways, here is a little tip on how you can spell check MOST, if not ALL, of your project....
  1. Go to any view that has a text note.
  2. Select the text note and right click it.
  3. Choose "Select All Instances..."
  4. Then choose "In entire Project..."
  5. Now, on the Ribbon there is an option to "Spell Check"
This will spell check every note of that Text Type in your entire project... Repeat the following steps for any other Text Types you have in your project.  Of course, this will leave out text objects inside groups, families, etc...  But, it is better than nothing at all.

I can't believe I even have to make a workaround for SPELL CHECKING....
