## Spell checking in TS

 In my source file I have the typo “equaiton” and when I highlight-and control-click on it, the spell checker suggests “équation”.  With the same typo in Textedit, the suggested correction in “equation”. I am running TS 4.01 on OS 10.11.6 and I have turned off automatic pell check as I type. Themis----------- Please Consult the Following Before Posting ----------- TeX FAQ: http://www.tex.ac.uk/faqList Reminders and Etiquette: https://sites.esm.psu.edu/~gray/tex/List Archives: http://dir.gmane.org/gmane.comp.tex.macosx                https://email.esm.psu.edu/pipermail/macosx-tex/TeX on Mac OS X Website: http://mactex-wiki.tug.org/List Info: https://email.esm.psu.edu/mailman/listinfo/macosx-tex

What localization are you using? > Hi Herb, I have not consciously set dictionaries or localization, which is to say, I don’t know how to set these. A few additional clues: 1. This is a phantom behavior and I have not figured a reproducible way to make it happen. Before I sent my previous email, I quit and relaunched TS, and I still got “équation”. But half an hour into latexing this behavior was gone and TS now suggests “equation". 2. “équation” is the only french word I have ever noticed when the spell checker in TS plays this game. Other word suggestions are in english.

The default dictionary is set in In the Text tab of the Keyboard section of System Preferences. You can also set the dictionary locally for TeXShop in its Edit->Show Spelling and Grammar (Cmd-:) dialog. I believe this second method sets it locally for TeXShop (at one one time I think it set it globally). > A few additional clues: > > 1.

## Re: Spell checking in TS

 In reply to this post by Themis Matsoukas-6 I also randomly get this behaviour, but with other random French (I think) words. I've correctly spelt an English word and it gets the red underline and the suggestion is something French. I haven't noticed it for a while though. I'm pretty sure my localisation is New Zealand and I'm running Australian English in the spell checker. Cheers, Michael > On 13/08/2018, at 0021, Themis Matsoukas <[hidden email]> wrote: > > 1.

I've been using the Aspell English dictionary via cocoAspell for way too long and don't remember running into the problem.

 > > Sigh... I got that now too. > You mean you get the french dictionary in Texshop? If so, that’s good, the more people see this behavior the better the chance to uncover a pattern. Anyway, since I use excalibur for my spell checking, this is not really an issue except when I have typos inside latex commands, as in \begin{equaiton}, which excalibur ignores. This in fact is the reason why the only french I’d seen until now was équation.

E.g., with the English (Aspell) dictionary via cocoAspell the French spelling résumé is perfectly acceptable! > Anyway, since I use excalibur for my spell checking, this is not really an issue except when I have typos inside latex commands, as in \begin{equaiton}, which excalibur ignores.

As far as \begin{equaiton} is concerned, try using Command Completion (CC)! Type beq' (without the quotes) at the start of a line and then press Esc (unless you changed the trigger character it to Tab in TeXShop->Preferences) and you'll get |•| • where |•| is a selected bullet (called a Mark in CC parlance) which will get removed the moment you start to type. The Mark at the end it there so you can quickly jump outside the environment by pressing Ctl-Cmd-F to select it and they typing a return or what you wish to remove the now selcted Mark. See TeXShop's Help->TeXShop Tips and Tricks document fopr more information as well as tables of all the completions and abbreviations supplied with TeXShop.

I will try. But some old habits are hard to die. I still use from time to time , which was my long-ago shortcut for italics, but is now used by TS to bring up documentation for packages. My current shortcut hasn’t sinked in, even though it’s been several years since this change… Themis ----------- Please Consult the Following Before Posting ----------- TeX FAQ: http://www.tex.ac.uk/faqList Reminders and Etiquette: https://sites.esm.psu.edu/~gray/tex/List Archives: http://dir.gmane.org/gmane.comp.tex.macosx                https://email.esm.psu.edu/pipermail/macosx-tex/TeX on Mac OS X Website: http://mactex-wiki.tug.org/List Info: https://email.esm.psu.edu/mailman/listinfo/macosx-tex

I am not too sure how Excabilur works. For instance typing "ñiño" in Spanish suggests many possibilities, the 4th one being "niño", "méo" (accented "e") suggests "mío" in 2nd. place.
