I was looking over someone's profile page the other day and noticed a misspelled word in one of their summaries. It was clear what the author was trying to say so I just moved on to another hub, happily oblivious. Then today, I was writing a new hub and got to the summary part and worried that I might have a typo there.
That's when I discovered there is not a spellchecker above the box like the other capsules have. How come?
Oh, sure. I know how to cut the selection and paste it into a Word document and use that spellchecker. No problem with that.
Just wondering, since this is more or less a required fill-in-the-box deal.
It's a good suggestion! I'm not sure how simple or hard it would be to build that in, though.
Some browsers have built-in spell checkers that address things being typed into text entry fields, so depending on what browser a Hubber is using, the spell check feature might be redundant.
At any rate, I'll see what we might be able to do with regard to adding that in.
I've never used a spell checker because of that - my FF provides it all the time. It's not always right, but at least it makes me look twice when the squiggly red lines cover the page.
Thank you, Simone. It was just a curiosity thing. I'm sure you have a few other priorities.
Its a great idea, thanks for looking into it Simone.
It's a great suggestion. I look forward to finding out if it can be done.
I didn't even know about a spellchecker when creating a hub. How do I access it?

I have noticed that the spell check within the capsules does not recognize certain contractions, such as, "I've," and will underline it as an error, when in fact, there is no spelling error.

We are all writing custom summaries now I hope, but is it possible to put a spell check feature there? I am seeing quite a few hubs, even from prominent hubbers, with glaring typos in the summary. This is the worst...

Hi, I recently decided to click "ignore" on one of the words flagged by the spell checker, after this it has decided to ignore every single mis-spelt word on any hub, is there any way to turn it back on?

I just got a new laptop, and I'm not up to speed with all its features. Seems to me that there's a spell check feature on HubPages that works as you write comments to Hubs, but I'm not seeing that on my new laptop. I do...
