The spell checker should provide the options, known
from modern spell checkers, like:

- User dictionaly (should be editable via dialog)
- Online spell checking (underlines in the editor)
- Spell check current word/current selection

    One user remarked the following:

    I finally understood how the
    spelling check is working.
    Thank you guys for all, which I enjoyed a
    lot!!!

    The personal dictionary is loaded once during

    application startup and written once during application

    shutdown.

    It seems to be unefficient, if I have many personal
    words
    in one file. It will keep telling it's an error unless I restart
    the
    TexnicCenter. Can we have it renewed in real time?

    with
    best,
    aero

    Although this is more or less known, here a remark from a user:

    1)
    When misspelled words are underlined, adding a word
    to the
    dictionary removes the underlines from all
    occurances within that
    section, but the word remains
    underlined in other sections of the
    document. These
    additional occurances remain underlined, until
    text is
    entered into that section, or the word is right clicked.

    Another remark from a user:

    Dictionary change requires
    restart

    I added in the British English dictionary from

    openoffice.org as described on the FAQ page.

    It appeared
    not to work, but after a restart of
    TexNicCenter everything works fine.

    This is a minor bug but a little confusing.

    Thanks for a great
    product.

    Again a remark from a user:

    The spellchecker also spellchecks
    command arguments
    that won't get displayed as
    text.

    *Steps to reproduce:*
    1. Set default language to
    German.
    2. Type the following in
    TC:
    \begin{test}
    \end{test}

    \begin{tabular}{lllr}
    \label{bla}
    \pageref{bla}

    Actual
    result:
    "test" (both times), "tabular", "lllr" and "bla" (both
    times)
    are marked red, ie. as wrongly spelled.

    Expected
    result:
    Command parameters that are not displayed as text
    are
    not spellchecked.

    Another user likes to have support for multiple dictionaries. Mainly
    because he is writing documents, that contain more than one language.

    In order, to make items available to new developers, items
    that have been assigned for a long time, but not processed
    by the assigned user, are unassigned after a warning to the
    relevant user.

    I recently had a lot of files to review and
    correct, so
    I plugged the french spellchecker engine.
    It behaves
    properly on accented characters (but NOT on
    \'e \"a and Knuth-style
    accents).
    However, the spellchecker incorrectly flags:
    -
    isolated letters: math variables and french
    constructs like: "d'un"
    "s'est"
    - parameters to TeX commands like: \begin{itemize} -

    itemize gets flagged !
    - mathematics.
    So I suggest to limit the
    spell engine a bit:
    - do not spellcheck math zones (green or blue
    coloured)
    - do not flag isolated letters (the checker
    inevitably
    "sees" them but you just ignore anything that is
    1
    character long)
    - do not spell check environment names
    (whatever
    follows \begin or \end and sits between curly braces).

    We have another bug here:

    cursor placement after spell correction wrong

    To replicate the bug:

    1. type "bugg report"
    2. wait until the spell checker has underlined the
    word "bugg" red
    3. click with the mouse (right) between "b" and "u"
    4. select the correct spelling "bug"

    The word is replaced. The cursor (visually) set behind
    the word. If you wish to delete the space after the
    word "bug" you would press Del.

    5. press Del.

    BUG: not the space, but the "u" is deleted (because you
    set the cursor between "b" and "u" when right clicking).

    When the language is changed in the
    options>spelling
    menu, one has to exit and relaunch TexnicCenter
    for the
    change of language to be effective. It would be great if
    it
    could be automaticaly changed when the new
    language is
    selected.

    Another bug here:

    In case you do not set a user-dictionary in the options
    the spell checker should ask you to do so when you try
    to add new words (by right-click on unknown word (red
    underlined)). Instead it saves the word temporarily in
    memory but not permanently. After reloading
    TeXnicCenter all new words are gone.

    The spell checking stops working on any text after a
    'slash percentage' '\%' has been put into the text
    (where you need a percentage sign in the output, not
    commented text). The problem effects both the on and
    offline spell checking in all text after the sign and
    until the next paragraph.

    It maybe that the spell checker is classifying the text
    as a comment, even though it isn't supposed to be?

    When clicking on the "Next Line" button in the Spell
    Check dialog window, the line displayed in the upper
    area of the Spell Check dialog window, is very often not
    the same as the line marked in the main window.

    When spell checking (Tools -> Spelling), and modifying
    text in the spell check dialog (e.g. if word not
    found), the spell checker might erase everything from
    the edited position to the end of the paragraph or
    append a copy of the same portion to the end of the
    paragraph.

    Since I do not get the problem always, below some
    instructions on how to make it fail reliably.

    1) Open a new file in TeXnicCenter (1 Beta 6.21) and
    paste the following sentence:

    The test has to fullfil the criteria in the previous
    paragraph.

    2) Start the spell checker (Tools, Spelling)

    3) The speller shows: fullfil is misspelled and not in
    the dictionary.

    4) Add only the missing character l within the small
    edit portion of the spell check dialog and hit resume.

    5) The remaining part of the sentence disappears!

    To see the effect of doubling the remainder of the
    paragraph, repeat the steps above. In step 4 do remove
    the second l of fullfil instead of adding an l at the end.

    The error behavior remains after a program restart. I
    did not try a system reststart or a different computer.
