I downloaded the update today and imported my document.

The first part of contractions are underlined as being spelled wrong.

I can't upload an image right now, but I can e-mail it. Please let me know what you need.

Thanks!

I have the same issue, too. For now, I'm just telling it to ignore all or learn spelling.

The problem is with the smart quotes. If you turn off the smart quotes option then the spellchecker works fine. (In Edit>Options>Auto Corrections (the very last tab) un-tick the checkbox for "Use Smart Quotes")

I noticed last night that when I turned off smart quotes, my contractions were still showing as misspelled (although new ones I typed were not), so presumably it doesn't fix your pre-existing text.

I didn't experiment further; I just turned off spell-check entirely for now.

I noticed this too, but quickly realized it was a punctuation issue when I right clicked to see what the problem was, it was offering the same word. Unfortunately, I had either already told it to learn the spelling or ignore all before I figured it out, though. :evil:

Have there been updates to the Windows version? Where did you get them?

Here. There is a post with updated files... Just look through and you'll find it! I ~think~ 10/29 is the latest one.
