Hi,

As many other products, MemoQ highlights spelling mistakes on the fly (if the relevant setting is checked in Options). However I could not find any way to instantly fix the mistake or add the unknown term to the list of ignored words. It looks like I have to run a spell checking over the whole document before being able to do so. Is my understanding correct?

Many thanks in advance for any help.

Cheers.

PG

I also miss this function. It would be great to b able to do it, but maybe it's quite difficult to implement.

Cheers

I think the title goes without the need to explain further.

This function would make MemoQ the perfect CAT tool

It is indeed strange that a simple function like real-time spell checking (which is present even in Word, not to mention Trados) should be missing from both MemoQ and Dejavu X2. I hope it gets implemented soon.

IMHO actually real-time spell checking is 50pct implemented. What we lack is being able to FIX the typos and mistakes on the fly. Typos and mistakes are reported on the fly.

Cheers.
