Spellcheck not working (Resolved)

Post by stevefinlay » Thu Jan 14, 2021 2:17 pm

I have selected "check spelling as you type" and nothing gets picked up, even if I put in crazy misspelled words. Even if I check spelling of the whole document, nothing gets picked up. I have tried with language set to US English and British English. Neither works.

It didn't work initially when I tried it either - however completely quitting then restarting the app sorted the issue for me.

Didn't fix the problem for me. I'll try re installing.

Worked for me.

I installed the UK English Dictionary and ticked check spelling as I type. It was then asked to restart, and after that all was working. (Huawei P30 Pro kernel 4.14. 116)

That doesn't help me. Where did you get the dictionary from?

I downloaded a dictionary from the link above. It was in a ZIP package which I extracted. However, when I go to install the Hunspell dictionary, the installation is looking for an .sox file but there is no .sox file in the package.

1. The download we offer is a .sox file. Which browser mistakes that for a .zip file?

2. I have slightly reconfigured the web server. Can you try again now?

Interesting. When I used the native Samsung Internet browser, the spelling package downloads as a .zip file. When I switched over to Chrome browser, the spelling package downloads as a .sox file. Was able to install the dictionary and confirm that spell check works. Thank you.
