Is there a spell check available to use for our posts? Where might that be? Thanks.

We have not added that feature. Some people use the Google bar.

Google bar does not have all the words in it like GULLIBLE for instance. I also found out that MS word and the Webster’s dictionary does not have it also.

Go figure.

For those that have Microsoft Word, it's pretty easy to type your text, run spell check, then copy and paste into a FiberglassRV reply. I've used this method off and on with good results.


If a word comes up like GULLIBLE, you can always ADD it to the dictionary

Kristi and all,

Here's a couple of solutions you might try:
First is Tinyspell. It displays a white "TS" icon on your taskbar while monitoring everything you type. If you make a mistake, as determined by a surprisingly large dictionary, the icon turns yellow and beeps. Clicking on the icon gives you a list of closest guesses TS makes. Clicking one replaces the mistake or you can add your word to the dictionary. No definitions, only spell check. It's free and works with any program that accepts keyboard input.

If you need definitions, albeit without the automatic monitoring of TS, try Wordweb. Just highlight the suspect and click the taskbar icon. There it is. Also free for the basic version.

I have both load at startup so I nevur mispell anything.

Donna,

I do it the exact same way you do and I have gone ahead and added Gullible to the spell check.
