How do you check your spelling when you create applications using Microsoft Visual Studio.NET? Do you copy text from the Visual Studio.NET IDE into Word, check the spelling and then paste it back into the IDE? Perhaps you do something similar? Spell checking workarounds like this are very common and they can dramatically reduce your productivity.

Say goodbye to tedious spell checking hassles with the SoftWidgets Spell Code add-in for Visual Studio.NET. With Spell Code you can leverage your existing word dictionary within the .NET IDE...
