Used to work all the time for me now it wont. When i mispell a word the red line underneath doesn't pop up.
Check if you disabled it. spell a word wrong and right click it, and click spell check.
In my experience, the auto spell checker built into the story editor comes and goes. I can work for hours without it, then I save the page and all the red lines appear. (My stories have lots of made-up words, and therefore lots of red lines, so it's obvious when it is and isn't working. As of this moment, it is not working.)
I have yet to detect any rhyme or reason for this. The best theory I can come up with is that the spell-checker is a union member, and therefore won't work more than the minimum expectation.
I'll try to be less... happy then.
So hoping this gets fixed soon. My spelling SUCKS! :(
It works for me, although sometimes it doesn't. During the times it doesn't work if I try to spellcheck the page crashes. You can download the free version of Grammarly to fix it while it is not working.
