Allow spell checking to correct the text errors in references and data tables

Currently when running spellcheck, it is not possible to use the automatic function to change spelling errors picked up in references and data tables. This means having to go back after to find where the error was, and then going through a complicated process to be able to actually make the change. This can be frustrating for very large reviews with many references etc. Using the check as you go function is only helpful to a degree because so many medical terms are not in the spellcheck dictionary so just about everthing is underlined in red! See case 122028.

    I would hesitate to 'correct' spelling errors in refs; might be UK vs US spelling; the refs come with their own sins on their head, and we should preserve them as they are, including their errors.
