Correctly spelled words showing as incorrect in Composition Mode when working under MacOS Mojave.

Here is an example, but not the only one I’ve encountered:

Auto-correct looks like this:

The bug is persistent and doesn’t go away as is sometimes the case with auto-correct bugs. I’m wondering if it’s related to capitalized words.

As the spell-checker is entirely Apple’s code - Scrivener does nothing more than turn it on or off - this is almost certainly an Apple bug. Please report it to them via the public beta bug reporting process.

Thanks. But I was wondering why it would only happen in Composition Mode.

That is strange, and I have made a note to see if I can reproduce it myself - or find a cause - when I get back to working on Mojave updates in a couple of weeks or so. My feeling is that it will still be an Apple glitch given that it’s new in Mojave and that the spell-checking system is a black box as far as third-party developers are concerned, though.

All the best,

FWIW, I can’t replicate this issue in either British or American English (10.14 Beta [18A336e] and Scrivener 3.0.3).

Slàinte mhòr.
