Spell Check The Memo Body Only

Does it ever bother you how Notes spell checks the address fields (To:, cc:,
bcc:) when you are composing a memo? Since many names come up as misspellings
in the spell checker (especially for an international company like us), we are
frequently getting user requests to somehow turn this off. To address this
issue for our users, I created a SmartIcon to do the following:

1) Move to the body field.
2) Select the body text.
3) Perform the spell check.
4) Deselect the body text (so the user doesn't delete it by mistake)

Since the spell checker will confine itself to selected text when running, this
gave the users the solution they were looking for.
All it takes is three easy lines in a custom SmartIcon formula. They are:

@Command([EditGotoField]; "Body");

Hope you can use this tip!
