What happened to spell check. I had it yesterday but this morning when I right click on my message spell check isn't there. The way I type it sure comes in handy just wondering if it is just short time or is it permantly gone? :( :(

Jim, it must be a problem with your browser; there is not spell checker installed in the forum -- all the ones I've tested in the past or considered installing either slow the site down or they shut down without notice... I gave up and just use Firefox's spell checker.

I try really hard to avoid spelling mistakes. The dictionary within easy reach helps a lot! :{_}:

It sure pays to have had a zealous English Composition "Spelling/Grammar" teacher huh? Spelling Bee's never used to be just National Competitions, but revolved around the classroom. I had a special teacher who helped me and my spelling and I never forgot Mr. Lessard - EVER :wink: :roll: :lol: . I thought I was a smart a$$.. and said some bad words. He proved to me I wasn't and he gave me pages of the Oxford Unabridged Dictionary to write out to ensure that I understood the point. By the end of the year, I had finished the whole tome... :big smile:

I do use a spell checker occasionally though, as I have found that as we age, our eyes see what we wish them to see... so sometimes it pays to have one installed. I use IESpell as a plug-in for IE and of course the FireFox add-in. I use Canadian/International or British spellings though, because I cannot seem to spell words like honour and labour without the "u"... so I am constantly training the spell checkers.. :big give up:

Oh well.....

But they are available.

Thanks Dennis.
Now George, Bob and Rudi you know I shouldn't use a dictionary I might get to know the meaning of words also. :wink: :wink:

I use GNU Aspell http://aspell.net/. It runs in the background and adds spell check to every program that lets it. Like this editor on this webpage.
