It's not a perfect fix, but you can copy existing workspace preferences into any workspace. I keep a separate .epf (Eclipse preferences file, I guess) that I just import into every new workspace I create:

File → Import... → General → Preferences → Next > From preference file




If you are writing Java code, Window -> Preferences -> Java -> JDT Spelling


There are some ways for sharing preferences, but it doesn't come with the platform. The one I use is now available as an attachment to or more particular as attachment

Install into your Eclipse. Then you can export selected preferences to an .epf file. Also add a preference (!) in Preferences > General > Common Preferences which will share your settings across newly created workspaces.

I use this all the time and though it is not perfect, it does save a lot of effort in keeping my preferences aligned across workspaces.


Preferences->General->Editors->Text Editors->Spelling Uncheck the box "Enable spell checking"
