An annoying problem...

While working on Studio 2014 text often becomes highlighted as having spelling etc. mistakes with the jagged red line beneath (as in Word) when there is evidently no mistake in the text. This happens frequently, maybe in as much as 5% of segments andhas the serious effect of "masking" genuine mistakes.

It happens on all source file types (.doc, .ppt, .ttx etc), occasionally it "rights itself" and disappears, most often it doesn't. The jagged line doesn't always correspond to individual words and right clicking doesn't bring up any suggestion for correction. When you run F7, these sections do not appear.

Here's a screengrab I did to explain it better...

Yes, long-standing problem Jul 21, 2014

This has happened on and off since 2009. There doesn't seem to be any explanation for it. I think sometimes it happens when the segment has a lot of tags in it / starts with a tag, but not necessarily (as in your example).

The way I deal with it is to click Ctrl+A, Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V, (i.e., select all, copy, paste). The squiggly red lines disappear.

Not a good solution, I know.
