Spell Check Problem/Question

I have been using Scrivener for my novel for about a year now, and I love it, but a problem has come up recently: the software no longer alerts me to spelling mistakes. It used to underline them in red, like just about everything else on my Mac, but it won;t do it anymore.

All of the necessary spell check options are selected in the preferences, and the spell check is also enabled in my Mac’s settings.

One interesting thing is that Scrivener is still underlining mistakes in the “notes” section, but not in the body of my actual prose.

Does anyone have a clue what this could be about?

There is a known bug in the OS X text system, which seems to be irritated by Scrivener’s Page View mode. Do you have Page View turned on? If so, please try turning it off.
