Query on Auto-correct Spelling Feature

Auto-correct currently corrects as I type, but sometimes it chooses the wrong word. However, as I’ve already moved on in my typing, I don’t notice it until later. Is there a way to have a suspect word flagged only (as I type) so I can decide (more or less) on the spot to change it or not?

Yes - in Preferences / Corrections, tick “CHECK spelling errors as I type” and untick “CORRECT spelling errors as I type”. That way you will get a squiggly red line for a bad spelling; if you then right click the word in question it will give you a list of possible words which it thinks you mean (maybe only one if the typo is obvious).
