[quote=siria] Well okay, some 2-3 months ago I examined that spellcheck thing quite closely, and put all I learned in the forum thread for my spellprefs macro, and lots more info in the macro file itself. But don't have worked with it since anymore, so only talking from memory now (just hope not too much forgotten meanwhile ;-) Anyway, guess the spellchecker feature was already included in KM1.6beta, since it's part of gecko now. The red underlines worked already. Only the spelltest.dll, which creates the context menu, was missing yet (or old version not working), but Mark has long since fixed it, and it's only 83kB, so I assume his new one will also be included in the next beta. If yes, that would mean that KM1.6 doesn't need any additional installations, and IMHO that should be mentioned on the wiki page, not that people with KM1.6 get confused, or perhaps the browser itself with the complicated and not-anymore-needed old components files from the KM1.5-extension ;-) So for KM1.6 users the wiki page would only be helpful to get more dictionaries with their own languages... Disrupted's 1.5 extension contains already the "en-US" dictionary, and perhaps the future KM1.6 too? By the way the languages can be switched on-the-fly in Marks spellcheck context menu, by clicking on "dictionaries". There's no need to manually enable the spellchecker, it's enabled by default. The question is rather how to switch it off permanently ;-) Not quite sure if it's really using the language setting given in the wiki, since it has an own one (okay I cheated and looked it up: "spellchecker.dictionary" :cool:) Possibly it uses the wiki one if the other one is not defined, no idea... In KM1.6 the new spelltest.dll only contains a minor bug yet, but should be mentioned: the cursor must be put inside the word to get the word suggestions list. In KM1.5 hovering over a word is enough.[/quote]
