Suggestions only in one language...
Authored by: eno on Oct 25, '02 06:50:19AM

No. It doesn't seem to know which language it's in at any given moment. It is just testing to see if the word appears in any of the dictionaries. And sometimes, it guesses wrong. For example, taking a word like "information/informaciĆ³n" which is very similar in English/Spanish: if I spell it as "informaion" it suggests only the English version, and in fact, even if I spell it as "informaiĆ³n" it still suggests only the English.

This doesn't really bother me. I want it more for the fact that it underlines words that are wrong. Usually that's all I need: I can correct it without suggestions.

Without the multilingual spell checking, the underlining becomes useless, because if you are written in Spanish/English with a Spanish dictionary selected, then almost every English word is underlined, and so you stop paying attention to the lines...
