Sometime during the past two weeks the spelling checker has stopped working when using Chrome (38). Words are not flagged with a red underline when misspelled and running the spell checker does not move the cursor..
This is not a hub specific problem. I tried it on existing hubs and have the same problem. Everything else seems to work fine!
It also works on Explorer 11 with no problems
Help would be appreciated!
I just tested the spellchecker in one of your Hubs and it seems to work and identified and underlined a word with potential spelling issues.
If you clear your cache, upgrade to the latest stable version of Chrome (39.x as on this post) and reboot your computer does the issue persist?
Is the issue sporadic?
Does it occur only with a specific Hub or capsule?
Can you share the specific words that are not corrected?
Can you provide a screenshot and the steps you are performing?
Matthew: I did as you requested however the new version of Chrome is still 38
Google Chrome 38.0.2125.111 (Official Build 290379) m
On the other hand, spell check is now back working. I suspect some of the Chrome Setting went south and the new software reset them all. Anyway it works and thanks for the help
I have noticed the same problem, yet sometimes if I return and type a couple of letters it starts to work on that capsule. Sometimes.

I asked a question on a post that I felt like investigating on my own. It was regarding Google Chrome extensions and whether or not anyone had ever tried any extensions that could check for copied content. I just found one I wanted to share with all Chrome users. It is called PlagSpotter Duplicate...

Just wondered if there was any point in having a spelling and grammar checker within hubpages?I raise this question because I see a lot of spelling and grammar mistakes while reading through hubs. It spoils an excellent piece of work. If people wrote their piece in word, first or...

Is your spelling getting worse?I prided myself as a kid on my excellent spelling. As the years go by it's getting constantly worse. I think it's the fault of Spell Checker, a blessed little program but one that makes us rely on it. Are you having the same experience?

Would fewer errors be made in Hubpages questions if a spelling and grammer checker was installed?Would the quality of questions asked on Hubpages be better if a Spelling and Grammer checker was installed in the questions section of one's domain? Some of my questions have unintentional glaring...
