fgh- Do you know how you turned it off... ? Smile

I never did. I just never turned it on. Or, actually, I probably turned it on when I first found it, just to check that it really did work in Logos (since people had complained about there being no spell-check), and then I immediately turned it off again, for the above reasons. If so, I would just have checked and unchecked as in Integ's screenshot.

(If there are bugs, I wouldn't know, since I've never really used it.)

You're right: one does have to turn it on for every single separate note, which makes it pretty unusable for anything but very large notes. I can't believe this behaviour is intentional. Someone who cares more than I do might want to write a bug report or suggestion or something.

On balance I would prefer if we kept quiet about it.     Wink

On balance, I think your behaviour is quite cheeky. Stick out tongue

FWIW - I think it should be something that can be turned on & off.

For me 6.6 beta 4 on Mac is working differently than 6.5 on Windows - under the same account, I brought up a Note on Windows that I Knew had a proper name which would be considered a misspelling, and on Windows 6.5 it is underlined in red and when I right click the word I get choices in the context menu.

On Mac 6.6 beta 4, I Get no red underline, and no choices when I right click the word.

So I think this is a beta 4 bug?

I just updated my Windows Verbum from 6.5 to 6.6 beta 4, and the spell checking works fine - same Note as on my Mac, I Get the red underline and the context menu choices for correction. So this is a 6.6 beta 4 Mac only bug.

Confirmed your findings, and created a new thread in the Beta forum BUG: Spell check non functioning in 6.6 Beta 4 Mac
