underline in red and check grammar and spelling errors

Post by Suono & Computer » Mon Oct 08, 2018 9:26 am

Good morning,
I'm using the free version of TextMaker, I installed the last update and the Italian language package, from the Hunspell dictionary, but I see that the program does not correct and does not underline (in red) the words I write. I tried to write them incorrectly, but nothing happens. I can not tell if I'm wrong, or there's something wrong with the program .. Thanks.

I'm not sure, but I've noticed that by restoring the old user interface, spell checking works, and some words or terms are highlighted in red; this does not happen with the new icon-based user interface ...

it seems that when a copied text is returned, the revision does not work. It works only if you write a new text directly into the page. Have you checked? Thank you.

Please check the following steps in case that the spell checker (F7) does not work properly:

1. Select your text and invoke Format=>Character. Make sure that the language for the selected text is set to "Default". In documents with text in different languages, format each paragraph or word in the language that the text is written in (e.g. select "Italian" for selected Italian text, "Spanish" for Spanish text and so on)

2. Invoke Tools=>Options=>Language and set the default language to "English" or whatever your default language should be. Also make sure that there is a green tick next to every language entry you need. This indicates that the corresponding spell check dictionary is correctly installed. If the green tick is missing for your language, please start the Setup of SoftMaker Office again and perform a complete installation. This will install al dictionaries. You will not lose any settings with that new installation.

3. Make sure that the spell checker is enabled in Tools=>Options=>Language

Not to hi jack a tread, but how do you get a list of corrected words? I tap on the word but no list comes up like in word, I'm just wondering if there's a secret to getting a list of suggestions.
