Spellcheck in InDesign is located under the "Edit" menu: Spelling : Check Spelling
To adjust hyphenation settings, select the text you want to adjust the setting for, and then under the "Window" menu: type and tables: paragraph
Once the paragraph menu is open, click the little triangle in the upper right corner, and in the submenu that appears, click hyphenation. That gives you access to hyphenation parameters and the hyphenation slider.
AND A REMINDER: you six lulu pages are due at the beginning of Monday's class.
