Spell check in full screen mode


when not in full screen mode spelling mistakes etc are highlighted with the red squiggly line. However, if I go to the full screen mode which is my preferred option the spell check lines don’t appear.

Is there something I can do about this?


I’m guessing not. Apple’s spell checker never fully scans a document for errors. It only appears to do so while typing; it is really only marking errors as you go. Once you leave a document and come back, they’ll be gone and you have to step through the document one-by-one to spell check (Cmd-;). My guess is, when you enter full screen, it is reloading the document to that window, and thus losing the previous markings. You can still use Cmd-; to step through the misspellings in full screen.
