    I'm using the latest version of Safari on the latest version of OS X. The spellchecker does not seem to work properly, as seen in the screenshot: Screen shot 2011-03-28 at 3.44.07 PM.png

    I doubt this is an xF Issue

    Right-click, right? The spell checker is a browser function.

    Whilst this is built-in browser functionality, there may be something that can be done to get it working in the editor.

    Therefore I'll leave this here for Mike or Kier to decide.

    Regardless of what causes it, can anyone duplicate the problem?

    I can't reproduce this on Windows. Kier was able to reproduce it on and off on OS X, but I believe this is unfortunately a browser bug.

    Yes it is. Spell checking works perfectly in vB.x and always has.

    In xF sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't. For example...when a word is spelled incorrectly the lines appears (sometimes) and the word is hi lighted when you control click (Safari). But, sometimes it isn't hi lighted and you have to "spell check now" to get it to work semi properly. It's a xF bug --- pretty certain. Never had the problem before and still don't on any other forum software. Have had the problem sporadically on several forums I belong to who have switched to xF. Hope they can track this down and fix it.

    Maybe it's a TinyMCE bug

    Well yeah...in retrospect I guess it's not a xF issue per se.
    What can be done about it? It's pretty annoying since I love me some xF. And why does it work corrctly "sometimes" and not "others"?

    Not much at this end.
    It's obviously an issue between TinyMCE and some browsers.

    I've never encountered this problem in Chrome for example.
