Woot. Works like a charm. Thanks! Did you tweak font rendering or something? Looks noticeably different.

An appealing release, but I'm getting no spell checking at all, neither Live nor Recheck. "Check spelling as you type" is indeed checked, and beta 1.3 was uninstalled before the new install.

Hmmm. I just activated my spell checker, and it seems ok.

It learned "WOOT!"

Jerome,

Try installing again - don't uninstall anything. See if that fixes the spelling issue - it should just work?

I'm getting no spellcheck as well. I tried reinstalling, but it's still not working.

Same problem here. My spellchecker randomly decided to quit on me one day after scrivener crashed in 1.3 (an RTF issue caused the crash) and ever since, nothing I do seems to help it out.

As others have reported, reinstalling has no effect. Running "Show Spelling" brings up a blank spelling window.

Okay, so I downloaded it to my desktop and the spellcheck is working fine on it. It is a Dell inspiron 530 running vista home basic.

Thanks for the new beta, Lee.

Regarding the speller, I confirm that it is not working for me. I uninstalled the previous version and installed the new one. Sorry.

Perhaps I have done something wrong, but this appears to have some of the same bugs as 1.3. When I opened my v1.3 existing project, all of the paragraphs were not indented. When I compiled to rtf (with a title page), I still get the thousands of pages of text.

Has anyone else seen this or is it just me?

Can confirm loss of spellcheck. Am working to find work-a-round. Will update if found.

My spell check appears to be OK.

I installed 1.4 over the top of my 1.3 install on WIndows XP 64 bit. Everything seems fine so far.

Hey guys, so I was able to get my spell check back by doing a complete uninstall. In this case I mean not only running the regular uninstall but also going into my Control Panel -> Programs & Features and making sure that Scrivener was gone from that list (which it wasn't). After doing this I also went into my C:/Program Files and found my Scrivener folder. This contains back up data, but as I didn't need any back up data because I had already backed up everything before doing any of this, I deleted it.

Once everything was completely gone, I was able to install completely clean and my spell check is back.

For what it's worth, I uninstalled first (by running the uninstall program in the Scriv 1.3 file) and then installed 1.4. Spellcheck works for me.
