Spell Check for Markdown in Sublime Text

There's no point of enabling spell check for your html/js/css/c/php/py.... files but when you are writing in Markdown, you'd probably appreciate spell check. It is simple enough to enable specifically for Markdown.

Open any markdown file.
Go to:
(Preferences) -> (Settings - More) -> (Syntax Specific - User)

This will open up a file named: Markdown.sublime-settings

Add the following

{
  "spell_check": true
} 

Save it in ~/.config/sublime-text2/Packages/User/ and you are done.

cool! I just applied this tip to Sublime 3. Once you open this file, you can use Save As and it should open that User folder. Also, to turn on spell checking, see View > Spell Check or press F6.

I think it's:

{
    "spell_check": true
}

With an underscore.
