Spellcheck not refocusing on window


Recommended Posts

I'm trying out JdeB's spellcheck, which I think is a pretty cool feature being able to tap into word's spellcheck facility outside of word.

On my system, however, I found that the original window from which the selected text came, wasn't refocused on properly, and hence the clipboard paste went nowhere.

In my case I used:

. notepad as the sample application

. had several windows open at once

. spell check picked up the highlighted phrase, ran word spell check, remaximized notepad, but the notepad window wasn't focused at the end of the operation

I found by adding one line to the script, this problem was solved.

; restore window
   WinSetState($WINTITLE,'',@SW_RESTORE)
*  winactivate($WINTITLE)
  ; strip spaces and add original number of leading/trailing spaves

Insert the '*' line into line 40.

I use tinySpell. Covers all programs.

I've just had a look at tinySpell on your recommendation. A program that can spell check any windows program sounds appealing.

However, I'm think it would get in the way of situations where you don't want spell checking, like coding, since variable names and language commands aren't necessarily supposed to be English words in the first place.

Is it easy to turn on/off on the fly?

Thanks

* tinySpell is US English only

* IESpell supports US/UK/CAN

I also found another one today, AutoTypist, that supports UK English only. Don't know how good it is.
