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.
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.

I just got a new laptop, and I'm not up to speed with all its features. Seems to me that there's a spell check feature on HubPages that works as you write comments to Hubs, but I'm not seeing that on my new laptop. I do...

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...
