Description shmuelh 2005-05-02 11:11:26 UTC
In theory, when a word is tagged for checking, it appears in red, within a box
of text before and after it. Sometimes the word is not in the box, but I need to
go up or down, i.e., outside the displayed text, to find the particular word. I
believe the word should always be in the visible portion of the text box.

Reassigned to SBA.
Comment 2 eric.savary 2005-06-27 22:22:25 UTC
To reproduce:
- insert the dummy text
- remove all punctuatuion mark
- modify one of the last words of the text so that it is wrong written.
- F7
-> the paragraph appears in the "Not in dictionary" box but doesn't show the
current mistake (which is far down in the text)

Issue type and target justification:
Type: one may think it should be specified that the control focuses the
mispelled word in long paragraphs but that's so obvious that I donb't see a need
to specify it -> bug, not feature.
Target: as the spell cheker UI is new for 2.0 this can be considered as a
regression (prviously the spell checker didn't show the context but only the
wrong word)
