Spellcheck.



  • Doesn't seem to work. I get ondulated lines for words properly spelled. I've installed language packs for danish and english. Not quite sure whether they're the correct ones though. Anyone?



  • Did you activate them for spellcheck? Pleas look in chrome://settings/languages ?
    Did you select them in text areas with context menu?

    chrome://…. is where?



  • Hi, copy
    chrome://settings/languages
    in to the address field > enter
    There are many settings in chrome://settings/ but not in the Vivaldi GUI atm..

    Cheers, mib



  • Ooops, i shoudl explain better in future.
    I apologize for my short and unclear answer.



  • I've found that the default English dictionary just isn't very big or smart. I too get a lot of red lines under properly spelled words. Unfortunately I've yet to find a replacement. I've searched a few times for a replacement dictionary but have come up empty.

    I can't speak for any other language however.



  • I cant check this because i am not a native english speaking person.
    But the file en-GB-7-1.bdic and …en-US... has both around 438 KB.

    But (may be silly question from me for you): did you activate the correct language/spellchecking in text area for the language(s) by context menu Spellcheck -> ...?



  • For me, the dictionary files are slightly different sizes:
    en-GB-7-1.bdic 438KB
    en-US-7-1.bdic 436 KB

    But you can always add words to the spellchecker dictionary.



  • @Saucermote:

    I've found that the default English dictionary just isn't very big or smart. I too get a lot of red lines under properly spelled words.

    The English United Kingdom dictionary seems OK to me. Most of the common *.ise spellings that are underlined in American are not underlined in English.



  • Yes. You are right.
    I made a typo.



  • Besides, I notice that neither Searcher46 nor Saucermote mentioned which English dictionary they installed.
    If they only used Vivaldi Settings then it would be American English.

    Other English dictionaries require adding via the chrome://settings/languages (link given by Gwen-Dragon previously).
