Spell Checking: Managing Mistakes

I wrote about spell checking in my last article, and there was a small but useful detail that I missed: skipping to the next misspelled word. You can type ]s to do this, and it helps when you're writing long text files.

In my case I write a lot of blog posts and even my books in Vim, so I now type ]sz= instinctively. To search backwards, use [s.

You can also add words to the dictionary, with zg. You can think of this as "add good word".
