    @bdthree – Lee, I’ve been having some problems recently and I don’t know whether my keyboard is playing up or my figers/eyes. ( I left this one in deliberately – also a ptroblem – as an example ) . Mostly I’ll correct them, but sometimes miss them. The red underline for mistakes would be useful. I’m getting the spelling wrong, ending up with i’s instead of o’s, y’s instead of t’s and a few other misplaced letters.

    I’ve been looking to activate the spellcheck on posts, but can’t find it. Is it there at all??

    Cheers

    No there is not one. It’s browser thing. You can download dictonaries for your browser to do the job.

    Strange – I’ve tried two methods, one add on spell check for Chrome and one change in the Settings/Advanced/Privacy and Security/Use a web service to help resolve spelling errors – Smarter spell-checking by sending what you type in the browser to Google ( not sure about that, it sounds bad, but they’re getting it all already anyway!! )

    Neither have any effect on dodgy spelling in the Reply to Topic box.

    I have closed all Chrome tabs and pages and opened them afresh.

    In the Languages section on Settings, there is a spell check option, but only the English (US) is usable, the English (UK) is greyed out. That actually works, so will have to do for now.

    Now that is working, I’ve switched off the web service option.

    I had the same problem with chrome and uk being greyed out and it was an easy fix. The problem is I have forgot what the fix was. I have to do it again so ill do it shortly and see what happens.

    Did you click install language first and then below that select it. And then I am guessing restart the browser. See Pic:

    So what I have done in chromium is highlight a word “J NJNN ” misspelled like this and gone to spellcheck and selected check the spelling of text fields. Oddly the option only show if a misspelling like above is used that can not be guessed by chrome as any other word. 🙂

    It showed English and English US, so I thought it already knew the difference. Installed English UK and the option to spell check in English UK came up.

    Realise (UK) now shows correct and realize (US) shows wrong.

    Cheers Lee.

    Why do you need to highlight it Lee – don’t you have the “Check the spelling of text fields” ticked??

    Removed English US and moved English down, leaving English UK at the top of the list for language and spellcheck.

    Thanks😀

    I think everything comes with US English installed now. “Z” where “S” should be all over the world.

    Yes Lee I found that to be true for most sites, apps and programmes. I have the red lines on my offerings here, I just bash away and type it all, then go back and correct spelling and/or grammar to my preferences, clicking “Add to Dictionary” but can’t remember how I did that.

    I don’t particularly care about Yank spelling and grammar: English is a beautiful,  living language and the mongrels across the pond are to be pitied for their efforts to ruin it.

    Y……. clicking “Add to Dictionary” but can’t remember how I did that.

    when the word is underlined in red, right click and the option to “add to dictionary” is there.

    Yes I knew that JCD: I meant that I did not recall how I originally set it up.

    No, my bad: did not make it clear in original post.  You are blameless mate!
