Spell checker?

I think this has been mentioned before, but I can't find the post - the automatic spell-checker (which highlighted possible errors while typing) seems to have been removed since the last Khorus update - why?

I appreciate there is still the manual option - IF you expand the toolbar - but not everyone will know this.

...but even then, a right click doesn't offer likely corrections, as in the Firefox browser or MS Word.

On most sites, the Firefox checker woks fine, so why not here? 

To err is human, but to really foul things up requires an algorithm.

Re: Spell checker?

@198kHz I intentionally mis-spelt words in my OP, and did get the correct spelling, but as you say, most sites work fine with the FF dictionary, auto-highlighting errors, as did this site prior to the 'update'

I was wondering why I didn't, but I do now - never thought to try a left click. D'oh!  🙄

Re: Spell checker?

I suspect that it is all conencted with the hash-up Lithium have made with the embedded TinyMCE editor with @JonoH has been trying to get them to fix for a while now.  TinyMCE can be configured to use the browser spell checker - I suspect it is turned off.

For the so called "best in the industry" they have made a right hash of the user interface.

Re: Spell checker?

@Townman Thanks for that information - I'd forgotten about that foul-up.

It can't be that hard to turn back on, surely - it was working just prior to the latest 'update'.
