Hi! So, first of all, I’m new to the forums (but not new to using Scrivener). I did try to search for an existing topic that might already have the answer to my question, but so far I haven’t found the answer. There are a lot of topics about spelling suggestions, but none (that I’ve found) are specific to the thing bothering me.
I’m using Scrivener 3 on macOS Monterey. I like selecting phrases and right-clicking to do various things — like appending, linking, etc. — and I’m annoyed each time Scrivener decides to give me a long list of suggestions (above the “learn/ignore spelling” option), which I usually have to scroll through to get to the part of the menu I need/want. It doesn’t do this for individual words, only phrases that Scrivener apparently thinks are incorrect. I’m actually wondering if this might be a bug? Because it treats it like the phrase is spelled incorrectly — it shows the “ignore/learn” spelling" option under these suggestions, but it doesn’t give me the red squiggles.
I don’t really want to turn off the auto-correct or spell check, because I like the red squiggles and I love auto-correct. I’m good with telling my Mac/Scrivener to learn the odd words I make up for various projects, but even if I try to “learn spelling” for the phrases that seem to trigger this phenomenon, it doesn’t actually change anything. It still gives me that ridiculously long list of suggestions that I have to scroll through. (And for the record, none of the words in the phrases in question are actually spelled incorrectly.)
I can’t imagine how anyone would make use of this function. I’ve isolated it to Scrivener. It doesn’t occur in any other apps on my Mac. I really want to turn it off if that’s an option, but I don’t see anything in Scrivener preferences/settings that will let me turn it off.
