Spellcheck not working on forum posts

I'm not sure when, but the embedded spellcheck seems to have gone missing in forum posts.  Anybody know why?

I went to school to become and engeneer now I are one..  Nope no spellchecker.

Yes, it's a crutch, but one I've trained myself to lean on - for better or worse.  And even when it's there, I get something wrong with most posts...  I can hear the (many) teachers in my family groaning after rereading most of my posted contents.

Regards,

Mark

I see 'where' it is, but I have not used it. (It also may need to be enabled in the browser itself... at least in Chrome)

Hope that helps

If so, please mark as solution accepted. Kudos also welcomed. :-)

Re: Spellcheck not working on forum posts

Nope - those spellcheck options are selected (English, an "Check the spelling of text fields...").

Still no "underlined red" anymore...

Theze wodrs ar mispeled.

I've tried on various Chrome browsers, and various OS.  Both in office, and at home.  It all worked fine, then just stopped...

Regards,

Mark

Re: Spellcheck not working on forum posts

Now that you mention it, I have been seeing this all day as well.

@stacias, can you take a look at this?

Thanks,

Re: Spellcheck not working on forum posts

Hello @markcurry,

You should be able to click on the spellcheck "ABC" option and this will check the spelling then and will highlight for you if any mistakes found:

Have you tried this yet? Does it actually work for you?

Re: Spellcheck not working on forum posts

Let's try again...

aks nt wht ur contry 

Hit that spell check button (I've never seen that button before).

Long pause.

Ah -spell check is back.   But it's definitely different than before.  

It doesn't check while you type - only when you hit that button - and then a long pause.  You also need to toggle it off/on to get it to recheck any new text.

Something's definitely changed in the forums software - not for the better.

Re: Spellcheck not working on forum posts

Hello @markcurry,

Please note that the previous spellcheck worked inconsistently across the community and it was also depending on internet browser users were using.

The community spellcheck version that we recently upgraded to, corrects issues with the old spell checker and will be built on going forward.

We understand this may take some time to get used to, however this should provide a better Search (i.e. Xilinx Search Prediction) and spelling experience in the future.

@anatoli

I have to say that the new spell check implementation is horribly broken.  Have you even tried it?  It's a step backwards...

Regards,

Mark

Re: Spellcheck not working on forum posts

Why a in line as you type spell checker can not be made to work is beyond me.
But hay , the forums have a new look, and so it must be better.
