Spell check in the new Google Sheets

We have added spell check functionality to the new Google Sheets. This is a new and improved version of spell check compared to what existed in the old Sheets.

In this version, spelling is checked against the web (similar to Docs and Slides) so that the dictionary is always up-to-date. Also like in Docs and Slides, people can add words to their own dictionary so that the spell checker won't mark names or abbreviations as misspellings in the future.

You can access the functionality by selecting Tools -> Spelling. Incorrect words are featured in a window on the upper right corner of the screen, along with suggested spellings. Suggestions can be accepted or ignored.
