Spell check on summary

    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 place to have a typo or spelling error as this is the part of the hub that the search engines pick up.

    I'm sure my own have too, because the summary box is so small, even using Chrome that has a built-in checker sometimes means missing errors.

    It's not as if we see our own summary that often, as even opening a hub to approve comments doesn't immediately show the summary.

    Either that, or somehow make the summary box bigger.

    I think a new spell checker is needed full stop. How can a spell checker that loses a whole country be thought of as reliable?

    That country being New Zealand.

    There are dozens of simple corrections that leave it baffled.

    What does it suggest for Opertunity? Unfortunaty nothing right.

      Some people might think that a good thing!   <joke - sorry Kiwis!>

    I have added it to the queue for our engineers. Thanks for the suggestion, Izzy!  big_smile

    Yeah dont go changing your summaries later on either, because if they are ranking and you remove the keyword they drop!

    Richie, yeah that makes sense. Most people surely wouldn't take their main keyword out of their summary though, would they?

    @Robin, great, thanks!

    Now can you ask engineering if they can get me out of the sandbox, pretty please?
