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

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?

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...

I don't know if this is the right forum section for this question, but here goes:Has anyone else noticed that the spell checker cannot seem to "see" apostrophes, and therefore does not recognize legitimate words that are contractions?I've, Can't, Won't, Didn't, Haven't ... etc... all...

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 see it while editing or creating a Hub.Thoughts, comments, advice?Thuts, cmts,...

Hi, I recently decided to click "ignore" on one of the words flagged by the spell checker, after this it has decided to ignore every single mis-spelt word on any hub, is there any way to turn it back on?

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.
