Auto Spell Check.

Message 1 of 10 (12,382 Views)

Should there be a way to enable auto spell check when sending a message, or posting in the community? I have looked for that option but could not find it. Spell check is your friend.

I'm assuming you're talking about a feature different from the Spell Checker at the top right of the message window??

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Just wanting to clarify if I'm understanding you correctly.

Same feature, but have an option where it will run automatically when clicking on post. Prior to the message being posted. Sort of what many Email programs do, This way it would fix typos, and or give you the option of making corrections prior to the mistakes I make getting posted. I though it would be a good feature to enable or disable if you choose to do so. I know you can edit the posts for a period afterwards BUT. I would also like to be able to make corrections in the Blog and Ideas postings, like what can be done on the boards. If that is not possible, auto spell checking would be the next best thing.

 

 

Thanks for asking KaLin.

Thanks for the suggestion, Prisaz. Why don't you post it on the Idea Exchange? Smiley Wink 

 

Just kidding.

 

I am hearing two suggestions here:

- Auto spell checker

- Ability to make corrections in Blog and Ideas comments

 

Am I right?

Auto spell check would be a nice feature. Sort of what many editors do. The updated spell checker was added in some upgrade gone by, and was a great improvement over the addon that was once here if my memory serves me right. But then again it may have been another forum.

 

Yes, but not the ability to change the idea once a vote has been applied. That would be to much like Washington, and I see that place 5 days a week. But it would be good if one could go back and correct spelling or grammar errors just like on other boards. This would be nice in blogs also.

 

I could post these and ask for votes, but this board was getting so lonely. Suggestions and Ideas are almost the same, but this board should be for those items that relate to community forum itself. Now if I go there and ask for votes, would that noy be cross posting.Smiley Very Happy

 

Thanks for responding BeckyC.

*sigh* love this suggestion.  So I had a quick call about it today and it's in the works, but there is no date on when it'll go live yet.

 

I'll keep you posted as I learn more.
