This is distracting, rather than a bug, but it's driving me nuts. As soon as you start to type anything in Beta 10, Scrivener flags it as misspelt until you finish the word. Any chance that the red-underline could be set so that it doesn't appear until you've finished the word (e.g. hit the space bar or a punctuation character?) That's how Ms Word seems to work and it's much less distracting. Thanks.

Indeed our goal is not to underline the word, which contains the current cursor, as it works in v1.9. Due to the new spelling implementation and spelling engine changes, this is still not fully implemented and is indeed a bug. We will fix it down the track, but I cannot tell exactly when.
