Auto correct will not change the incorrect word

Posted

When typing in SquareSpace, incorrect words appear underlined but will not be changed when I click on the correction given in the drop down menu. However, the corrections do happen on other websites (like this form I'm currently writing in).

Hi nicolapeel

Could you please start a new thread for your question?

Then you can provide more information like your operating system and installed extensions/plugins.


You can see which dictionary is selected if you right-click in a text area and open the Languages sub menu. At least one dictionary should be installed and have a check mark to indicate that it is selected.

  • open the "Add Dictionaries" link to install a dictionary if you do not have one.

The spelling checker is enabled if [X] "Check Spelling" in the right-click context menu has a checkmark.

You can enable or disable spell checking globally:

  • Options/Preferences -> General: Browsing: "Check my spelling as I type"

You can look here for dictionaries:

Note that you need a dictionary and not a language pack that provides string translations for the user interface.
