[LH3292] Beta 11: Spelling check bugs

I posted these in other threads, e.g. [url]https://forum.literatureandlatte.com/t/tiny-spelling-check-bug/42679/6] and [url]https://forum.literatureandlatte.com/t/spelling-problem-footnote-numbers-errors/42847/1]. As they are still there in Beta 11, I thought it might be useful to start a new thread. I suspect it would be helpful if people could check their own local language versions to see if these are dictionary specific (I use the UK English spelling dictionary).

  • Abbreviations such as etc., i.e. and e.g. are all being flagged as mis-spelt. But if you use the RMB context-sensitive menu, they show up as suggested corrections. If you select (for example) “i.e.” as the correction, Scrivener will correct your text to “i.e…” (two full-stops), and mark it as mis-spelt. Deleting the extra full-stop doesn’t correct it. But if you tell Scrivener to learn “i.e.” (add it to your personal spelling dictionary), the problem goes away (same with other abbreviations).
  • Words with numerals are always flagged as errors, e.g. 1st, 2nd, etc. And if you place footnote or endnote marker immediately after a word, that is marked as mis-spelt too.
  • The spelling and apostrophes bug is still there [url]https://forum.literatureandlatte.com/t/lh3292-beta-11-spelling-and-apostrophes-bug-persists/43642/1]
