Description osavill 2006-11-21 14:38:03 UTC
When using the spell checker you see the misspelt word in red in the "Not in 
Dictionary" window. If the word you want is not in the Suggestions window you 
can edit the document directly and then the spell check will continue, over the 
newly entered word, when and Ignore or Change button is pressed.

This is not entirely obvious !

1) Although the misspelling is in red in the "Not in Dictionary" window it can 
take some finding in the main text as the word does not appear highlighted. 
Maybe that's a bug and I should put in a separate report in for it.

2) I automatically look for a "Replace With" entry field, along with the 
Suggestions window, so I can enter my own text if a Suggestion does not fit. 
This avoids excessive mouse movement as you go between the main document and 
the dialog which, as in my case, may be on a different screen altogether. I 
haven't got a 1900x1600 monitor but I do have a lower resolution dual head 

3) Once the main document has been edited it makes no sense to only offer 
Ignore, since I haven't, nor Change since I've just changed it myself. There 
should be a Resume button offered.
