There is even a menu entry for global actions.  However, how
should I check the spelling of a multifile document?

This works well in the master file of my document.  Other TeX
files include files using a path that is relative to the master
file.  Consequently, `ffap' can only suggest the directory of the
currently opened file in order to give a starting point.

Anyway, thank you very much for pointing out these possibilities.
