Can you turn spell check off?

Can anyone tell me how to turn spell check off on AD on iPad, please? I am making a logo where the word is a non word, so it has annoying red spell check wiggles under it that are putting me right off!

Thanks

Would it be easier to add the "non-word" to the dictionary?  That way you'd still be checking the rest of the text and you'd ensure the non-word was spelled consistently.

Better still, on AD desktop there is an option to ignore spelling, which will just ignore the spelling of that word for that specific document

If that option is also on the iPad try that

PS You can unignore that word in that document at a later date if you want to

This discussion doesn’t really belong in an ‘Affinity on Desktop Questions’ thread, but I can’t find a way to edit the dictionary in AD on iPad.

I've split and moved the related iPad questions to a new thread in the relevant section of the forums.

We use the dictionary and spell checker that is being used by your iOS as Affinity for iPad doesn't have it's own dictionary currently. Unfortunately this means currently there's no way to edit the dictionary and add/remove words from within Affinity. I believe you can add words to the dictionary from some Apple apps, but I've yet to find a way to remove these words through the iPads settings, other than resetting the keyboard dictionary in its entirety.

I was having the same problem on my iPad. I tried AlainP's suggestion and it did the trick! Just to be clear he means the "Text Studio" panel on the right-side menu.

SelectText in the studio panel (a) - "Burger" menu at the top - Uncheck "Check Spelling While Typing".

Thanks Alain!

Using ‘Uncheck spelling while typing’ does not save this setting when the document is closed, which means AD is basically giving me the bird every time I open up my document by showing me the squiggly red lines yet again that I don’t want to see. 
 

In my opinion this should never have passed Quality Assurance by the fact that it’s a bad UX experience for the user. Really really really really annoying.

Hey I found that typing the word(s) in Pages and having the iPad learn that word solves the issue. Simply tap on the word in pages and select ‚learn‘.

Close and reopen AD ios

 

hello, this workaround is brilliant...it works:-) you saved my day as the spelling check is a constant nuisance

A great workaround, especially given that we can just as easily tell iOS/iPadOS to ‘unlearn’ words that we’ve taught it.
