    hope this is in the right category, if not, feel free to adjust.

    a lot of people comment on how they wish there was a spell check for BYC.

    i accidentally found it today!

    just right click your mouse or pad while in the box. the option SPELL CHECK THIS FIELD will appear.

    yeahhh! so, give it a try and see if your systems do it to.

    just wanted to post since i saw so many ask or comment about it in the past.

    Nice job, miss_jayne! I can think of quite a few people that this might benefit, myself included.

    Thank you!

    If you use FireFox it will spell check for you. I just tried it while using Internet Explorer and spell check wasn't one of the options. [​IMG]

    Simple solution also:

    On Firefox click on Tools / Options / Advanced / General / then under Browsing click " Check my spelling as I type"

    Internet Explorer does not offer this feature ( that I know of).
    Thanks again Bill.

    If you do not use Firefox, but would like to try it Click Here.

    Firefox is a far superior browser than IE.

    i have Firefox, that must be it. it does highlight misspelled words as i go, but doesn't offer options until i do the actual spell check.
