Spell Check
by Steve Testone on October 12th, 2009

Some have said that the the auto spell checker in most word processors is personally responsible for the complete collapse of an entire generations spelling skills. I would probably agree with that since my motto is "If it doesn't have a red squiggly line under it then it must be spelled write.". However, this creates a problem when using SnapPages because of lack of spell checking built into the system...until today.

You'll now notice that a lot of areas in SnapPages will now have red squiggly lines all over the place(for me at least) because we've added some basic spell checking into the system. I've personally corrected several mistakes while just typing this post. The system isn't 100% fool proof yet and it only officially supports the English language but it should still be a dramatic improvement.

We should have some other significant updates launching later this week so be sure to be on the look out for those as well.

I especially liked your motto with the wrong use of "write" instead of "right". Hilarious! Thanks for the chuckle.
Now if we could only correct our grammar. We might end up better then most...oops... I mean better than most.

Is there a way to turn it off? It's very annoying

Currently there is not an option to disable it, but I will try to add one so it will be an optional feature.

My website is in Norwegian, so I end up with A LOT of squiggly red lines on it... Then it just becomes really annoying! :-)

I've added a feature that should allow you to disable this now. Just right click in the text area and select "Disable Spell Check".
