Spell Check
« on: April 09, 2015, 02:36:52 pm »
I've downloaded the Australian Spell Checker which initially worked ok.  However, despite this option still being selected in Background Spell Check, I'm not getting any spell checking.  Nothing is underlined not even deliberate mistakes. And when I click on spell check, I get an instant popup saying that the spell check is complete.  As this is a 300 page document, I don't think the results could arrive so fast.  Even if they could, this result can't be right as there are mistakes.

Appreciate any suggestions as to what might be the problem.

Thanks.

Ok, crises averted.  I clicked on 'Background Spell Check' in the EDIT Menu and a frame appeared around it.  Now there are red squiggly lines appearing under the words so this appears to have been the problem.  Not sure how it became turned off.  I might have done it, I suppose.

Anyway, glad to have this great option.  Thank, Alex. :)

Hello Wendy,

I was actually willing to ask you which button you have clicked.
FYI: there is a limit, depending on which automatic background spell checking is on or off:
http://wiki.hippoedit.com/plugins/spell-checker#background_spell_checking

It may be, that because your document was rather big (as far as I remember there is a check for line count + line lengths) so it has background spell checker disabled by default.
It also may happen that after reopen of the document you will need to re-enable it.

BR, Alex.
