    It can be done and someone will be along soon to tell you how. I wouldn't worry about it, on this forum it is more important what you say than how you spell it. :BigGrin: Except in my case as it is usually drivel. :RollEyes:

    Far be it from me to disagree with Ken :Laughing::Laughing:

    At the top right of the text box when you reply there is a Tick symbol with ABC next to it. Click that to spell check your message. It may require you to download and install ieSpell the first time you do it.

    If you are using Firefox, the spell chucker should be automatic.

    It puts a red line under the mis-spilt word. You right-click on it to get the correct spulling.

    With the problem of a lot of Yank spellings. Unless you've found a working English dictionary.

    If you are serious the go to tools, addons then Find Updates. It will find a United States dictionary and install it. Mine is showing all your typos.

    Thanks for that, there was no mention of an "add on" before, just that F/fox would highlight mistakes. :Smile:

    If using Chrome , go to tools, ( spanner icon ) , extensions , then 'get more extensions'

    then look for

    Google Dictionary (by Google) - Version: 1.0.2

    not only spell check but also a look up dictionary
