I usually see a red underlined word to indicate that I've misspelled something. It doesn't always work in the hubpages edit window. Why is this? I feel like I have to hire a proofreader because I'm not the best speller in the world. How does your spell check work. Any tips on catching spelling errors?
use Microsoft word when writing your content and copy paste then in text capsule, HP spell checker is nothing worth.
If you are not seeing it in normal editing mode, you should be able to switch to "HTML" mode and see it.
For what it is worth, it usually works for me though during normal editing mode, using Firefox.
It doesn't show in mine either, so I keep an on-line dictionary in another window for when I'm unsure.
Of course, as Saleheen so rightly says, it's best to first write in Word.

Do hubs with spelling errors make you think less of a hub?Is anyone else distracted by a hub that has decent content but several spelling errors or grammatical errors?
