You might also try the following:

  • Go to the menu item: Format > Option Inspector
  • Go to Editing Options > Private Editing Options
  • Set IgnoreSpellCheck to True

Alternatively, you can set this same option using SetOptions from a notebook by executing

  • SetOptions[$FrontEnd, IgnoreSpellCheck -> True]
