A way to override spelling autocorrect on the fly?

It would be nice to have a feature like this. Is there a short cut key or sequence that will allow this? Example. I want to type Tic-toc. I type “Tic-” and everything is fine. When I add “toc” to the end of the hyphen and hit the space bar it autocorrects to “cot” resulting in “Tic-cot.” It would be nice to hold down some function key or combination and spell it manually just the one time.

Well, in itself that thing you ask for wouldn’t work.

In those cases, fix the word back, and add it to your personal words list. (Right click, Learn Spelling.)

If you want an after the fact fix: Ctrl-Z does it.
