Can spell checking "on" be the default?

    I always try to spell check my replies. It is a nuisance to remember to turn on the spell checking. I have to remember this for every reply. I need every brain cell I have to make coherent replies. :rolleyes:

    Maybe the default could be a custom setting in the uses profile setup. That way, if others don't want it on all of the time they could fix it. ;)

    I think that's a browser function. It's on by default in my browser (Slimjet); think that was also the case for Chrome.

    Yep, that's the case. Check your browser spell check options.

    On some forums only the forum spells checker will work. I think it might be the type of control that is used for input. But on this forum it is the browser spell checker that is used. I have never had a problem with the spells checker being disabled on this form.

    Firefox underlines misspelt words.

    I don't think it's a feature of the forum (or not this forum). I know that the spell checker that my browser uses accesses the custom words that I've added over the years and if I add them when making a post here they are available when I'm working in Word.

    I am using Firefox. The only setting I see is the one to enable spell checking as I type. I definetately do _not_ want that on.

    I did a test... I _do_ want spell checking as I type turned on. I was confusing it with auto-correct as I type which would be very bad.

    Thanks, all, for setting me straight.
    :D:D
