I don't know if it's relevant to Scrivener 3* or your circumstances but have you seen this:derick wrote:I am having the exact same problem in 3.0.2. No amount of toggling settings will get auto-correct, quote smartening etc. to work.
Rebooting hasn't helped.
Every other application on my system auto-corrects etc. just fine.
Spell Check Stops Working
Misspelled words will not be highlighted in red, straight quotes will not automatically switch to smart quotes, double-hyphens and triple periods will not switch to emdashes and ellipsis (respectively). This may happen immediately after installation, or it may happen after years of the spell-check working correctly.
This is caused by a timing error where individual elements of the editor window are initialized in the wrong order, resulting in a disconnection with the operating system's spell-checking system. The timing is so sensitive that it impacts very few systems, and when it does, it may not impact them all of the time. For example, a system that was working for years may suddenly experience this problem after a system update or the installation of new software, because the overall timing of the system has shifted just slightly.
Although it results due to a timing error, the actual trigger is a specific feature that can be controlled: Page View mode. It can only occur when Page View mode is enabled when the project is opened. To get around the problem, open the project and disable Page View by going to "View > Page View > Hide Page View." Then close and reopen the project. Spell-checking (and its associated replacement features) should now be working. At that point, Page View mode can be re-enabled if needed, although it may need to be disabled before the project is closed, or the problem may re-occur. We are continuing to work on a more permanent solution to this problem.
