Non-smart single quotes and spell checking

Post by PeteCC » Sat Aug 05, 2017 11:12 am

See previous post in TextMaker 2012: Non-smart single quotes and spell checking

This issue (in which single quotes are flagged as spelling errors if smart quotes are switched off) that I raised five years ago, has still not been fixed.

:(

I am using TextMaker 2016 (rev 766.0331). It reports that there are no updates.

The issue is exactly the same as I reported before. Just set background spell-checking and set smart quotes to none, then type 'hello' (including the single quotes) at it will underline it as a spelling error...

the problem is that noone here can reproduce this issue with TextMaker Standard or Professional rev.766.0331. I attached my sample file and screenshot.

Please select the text, invoke Format=>Character and make sure that the correct language is selected for the text.

I said that you have to set smart quotes to none.

This was mentioned in my original message about TM2012, in the title of this topic, and in both my messages above.

I have attached your file, modified with smart quotes switched off, and it displays the problem.

The problem has been solved and should not occur any longer in the next service pack.

Does the launch of the 2018 version mean that I won't ever get this fixed in 2016 and is it actually fixed in 2018?

Well, it the developers solved the issue some time ago but there was no release of a new service pack for Office 2016 yet. I will send you a hotfix via PM.
