As Rick mentions below you must have a book or document open.

What you want to press are:

I (lower case eye)
S (lower case ess)

Those are four separate sets of keystrokes done sequentially.

Normally written as Esc, Shift+f, I, s

Subject: RE: Keyboard Shortcut Problem

Hi Joseph,

Are you trying the key combinations with a document open? As far as I know,
some of these shortcuts only work with an active document.

Hi all,

I know framemaker 9 has been really buggy with keyboard shortcuts, but I
haven't seen anything about this issue. According to the FM 9 help system,
the keyboard shortcut to open the spell checker is: esc shift+f+i+s. I've
tried pressing the following on my keyboard: press the ESC  button, then
press shift+f+i+s. Now I've noticed that I haven't been able to get any of
the esc+shift combos to work, so this may be a user error on my part.
