Hi,

I'm using Tageditor 2007. The spell-check has a habit of missing the last letter off a word. This means it will take a correct word such as 'organise', and query it as 'organis'. It also means, if I now hit 'ignore all', it may miss any typos where I actually have missed the -e off. So I just have to use 'ignore' each time, which is obviously not very efficient.

Can anybody help with this?

Same problem here Apr 7, 2011

I don't understand this problem, it comes and goes and is document-dependent.

Here too Apr 7, 2011

Well it seems that when the tag are inserted if there is no space between the word the tag the spell check does not work....

Not only Apr 7, 2011

It also sometimes happens when there is a space between tag and the word or just randomly. It's a stupid TE bug I guess.

Another thing, what makes TE's spellcheck useless, is that if I write "Do this this good", it does not find the "accidental double word" problem.

It's best to just save target as and to do the final spellcheck in word.

You can use QA to detect duplicated words Apr 7, 2011

You can detect these errors by setting the option "Check for repeated words in target" in the QA Checker 2.0.

It is not a TE bug really Apr 7, 2011

This usually happens when there is a tag in-midst of a word. You can check this by displaying all tags.

Actually, this is nothing to do with tags in the middle of a word. It seems to be a TE bug, and a very annoying one. AFAIK it was introduced with the latest version of TE (I don't think it happened in previous versions).

The same problem was reported in this thread about a year ago. Unfortunately, nobody has come up with a solution so far.

Best regards,
Claudia

I have the same problem as all of you with the spell check.

No response from SDL.
