Hubwide spell check

    It would be nice to have just one button to spell check my hub before I publish it, instead of having to click it within the capsule. I usually have multiple capsules per hub and since it takes a bit for the ajax or whatever to load, it kind of deters me from spell checking.

      I agree, that would be an awesome feature.

    Some of us write our Hubs first in Word or in a similar word-processing program.  That document can then be spell-checked as a whole and afterwards loaded by sections into capsules.  I like working that way because it is easy to revise the material before putting it into separate capsules.  In other words, the spell-check feature is not my only reason for working that way, but it is a bonus.

      Plus you can check your grammar too...

        Yessss..... I guesssss -

        I'm sure it's possible, but most of the time when the Word grammar-checker says I'm wrong, it's actually the grammar-checker that is wrong.  I think that it's pretty good for basic grammar, but with increasing complexity it gets confused.

        For example, earlier this evening I was typing this: "One way to figure out which elements are the most essential is to...." and the grammar-checker marked are as being incorrect.

        When I remember to do so, I turn off the grammar-checker altogether.  It's just too annoying for me.
