Is there a spellchecker built into Stampboards?

I thought there was a spelling checker in the coding for Stampboards?

If there was, it is not operating.

I thought I won Lotto, but I was wrong too. 8-)

What made you ever ''think'' there was such a thing?

The 50 free downloadable spell checkers, that one can choose to suit YOUR device, and YOUR browser, and your level of needs, works pretty well for the other 22,500 members. :idea:

Whatever free program I once loaded works perfectly.

(For many members I really WISH they used something - ANYTHING!!)

Ahhhh.... which spell checker would you choose? UK English or US English? :shock:

I didn't even download one, it came with my Office 365 sub and I chose which country to use.

Those members who are astute will approach posting on this site with bit of trepidation. I suggest, to create complex, long, multi-word posts where gremlins can sometimes usurp a post or modify or delete text, you use Word or Notepad that include spell check thus protecting your text in its entirety prior to posting in a particular thread.

Try typing <confuzing numbre of machin alternateve formatts> and you should see autocorrect at its finest,
but its not a spellchecker, as such.

(If it was, I'd simply add "machin" to the dictionary, and never be caught out again!!)

Actually, I meant autocorrect. I was sure there was one in operation, because I thought I had noticed that one had to right click to correct on Stampboards, rather than left click. But, I was wrong seemingly. :(
