Those that use word processors and e-mail for correspondence are familiar with a spell checker. In the latest upgrade to this forum, you now have that powerful tool here, not only in creating a new message but private messages as well and it is very easy to use.

Here's a screen print of the toolbar and the Spell Check popup. Note the little icon with the ABC and the checkmark. Click on it before posting your message and if no errors found, it will say so. In the example below, I misspelled the word "explaination" and got the popup not only with the correct spelling but possible alternates. Try it sometime!

Now, if we had something to correct the use of "there" for "their", "breaks" for "brakes", and the many other misused words that are so common here.

Is it an "RV thing"?

The spell check button logo is the is the same as the IESPELL button. Is the checker IESPELL and if so why do the checkers react differently to the same words? One thing I like on IESPELL is the word in question is hi-lighted.

I'm told you can program your Spell Check to ignore single letters commonly used within the 4ums code. Copy and paste this line into a reply and then click on the Spell Check ABC icon.

The Spell Check will stop on each one of those and you can click on Ignore or Ignore all.

The next time you use Spell Check and have single letters such as those, they should be ignored.
