Do you mean “point out” in the title?

Yes, thanks for catching it.

I believe this one is because of the browsers. Browsers like Chrome would not redo all the spellchecking because we flipped a switch - you have to type things in order to make the red lines appear. We apply the changes on our end right away.

This is a bug that we’re tracking… not super priority but will get fixed soon.

In general we try to apply the settings without needing a refresh, like changing themes etc. Let me know if you find more cases of this bug!

Thanks for explaining, I’m glad that they happened to coincidences in some way or the other, haha.

This one is fixed in the latest version.

As for toggling the spellchecker, I believe we really have no say in how exactly it works. We did turn it on immediately.

@JP1 I’m tagging this feature as implemented if you don’t mind. (First implemented feature, woohoo!)

(If it’s bad to revive this topic, I’m sorry. I think only half of it was really solved and I wanted to keep the past context)

I’m using Chrome on MacOS, and indeed a reload is needed before spell checking being disabled takes affect, although enabling it shows the red squiggles without a refresh.

If this behavior is down to the browser, might it be a good idea to discreetly acknowledge the toggle-spell-checker command, with a pop-up or something? I would like this even when spell-checking is enabled, because when I have no mistakes in my visible document, I get no indication that the option has been enabled.

I’m basically thinking of the status bar in Sublime Text, which shows a message for a few seconds when a non-visible event such as a ‘save’ occurs.
