No spell checker in 1.4.6?
« on: December 18, 2016, 08:20:36 am »
I am using 1.4.6 on Fedora 25. In the past on Fedora 24 I was using the spell checker on the monthly newsletter I write. Updated to Fedora 25 during the month and now I can't find a 'Check Spelling' or similar option anywhere. Has it gone away, or am I missing something?

I see this old unanswered post. Maybe you found the spell check or perhaps not.

It should be there hidden cleverly in the Story Editor in 1.4.6.  Select your text box and invoke the Story Editor with Cntrl+T or right click and "Edit Text". Go to Edit> Check Spelling.

Or you can use the shortcut: Shift+F7.
