    Forums and spell check?

    As you can tell from my name, spelling is not my strength. Big Smile

    Is there any way to get spell check inline in these forums?  When I am really worried, I compose in an exterior tool.  But it would sure be nice to have a spell check right in this tool.

    Rumor has it that such a thing exists elsewhere ....

    Click on the HTML button above the reply compose window.  I seem to remember having to turn spell check on in something like the browser preferences(?) but it was a long time ago

    Hi Andrew,

    I poked around looking at your suggestions and did not find anything.  I am on a Mac if that matters.

    Thanks,

    Jef

    This current version of community server doesnt have that feature enabled....

    We hope to go to new software in 2018 and that will definately be an option Jef..

    My online is with PC and Google Chrome Browser.  The HTML button opens    Showing HTML Source Editor - Google Chrome  edit window.  (I have spell check on in Chrome preferences)
    I made a screen capture of the HTML page open but for some reason this forum is not allowing me to attach it.

    Hi Jef,

      Try grammarly it adds a quick checker so you don't need to compose outside of this Forums. There's a free and paid version see what works for you.

     

     

     

    Thanks,

    RalphC
