Check Spelling

Postby Spitfire » Fri Feb 26, 2010 10:15 am

I see when you get the reply to post box up there is a 'check spelling' button. Now I may be a bear of very little brain but I am damned if I can get it to do anything ~x(

I make deliberate errors (not easy for me :p ) and press the button ... nothing ... I highlight all the text and press it ....highlighting goes away ... nothing X(

Does it do anything - and if so how do you make it do it .......... :-??

You could always up load the I.A. Spellcheck programme!

What browser do you use SF? - have you tried right clicking a word to see if it comes up with a spell checker

How about a Wrong Click Option?

I like to do my planning retroactively!

Hmmmm I can't remember now if I stopped using it because although they say there is a built in checker it didn't work despite there supposingly being a plug -in which I downloaded or if couldn't get on with it, I use google chrome now.

Aha just reinstalled FF to try & my avg says its blocked the plugin [meta.... something] as there is known security fault with it, ....... any help?

It's crazy :D
IE is the lesser of all available browsers now, but it is STILL classed as the browser standard.

When coding a website, you can only account for so many browsers before you spend years writing code and the site never goes live :))

From memory, I think IA v3.0.6 I tested on IE, Firefox and Chrome.

But as for the spelling, is 'IEspell' behind that button ... as the name suggests - only available for IE :(
