I just came up with another great idea here folks. what about a spell check feature? i know there's been times i've had to open up various windows and/or tabs to check on how to spell certain big words i wanted to use in some hubs. however, it would be a lot less time consuming if there was a way we could have a spell check feature to check for grammar before publishing. that would be cool, right?
This feature is already available from the toolbar when editing a text capsule. You may want to take it for a spin.
I use the Google toolbar. It has a spelllcheque fo r any online writin.
Firefox has something similar. I like firefox, as it has it's own built-in spell checker.
I've gone through older hubs, and noticed tons of mispellings where my fingers just went faster than my brain. Firefox tends to catch it all... Well, except words spelled right but used wrong, but I don't thinks there's a grammar check available. Not even word catches all those mistakes...
Speaking of spelling improvements. Is there a ways to comprehensively spell check all the capsules? I find it time consuming. More capsules help the flow and the advertising but the effort is sometimes daunting.

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...
