Changing spell checker language - bug

  • I use Opera 24.0.1558.64 (x86) on windows 7 x64.

    I speak more than one language. When I write in a different language I left click and select the new language in Operas spell checker. However when I do this, the red marked words stay red. The spell checker does not re-check the spelling using the new (correct) language until I left click every single sentence in the entire text I've written.

    As a bilingual this is very annoying because every time I change to another language I have to left click every single sentence I've written to have it re-checked using the correct language.

    Is there some way to get the spell checker to re-check the entire text when you click a different language?

    Sincerely yours.

  • I also have exactly this problem. But it's also very annoying to switch the spell checking language every time I write on a different language, it would be nice if that change was done automatically (If it is possible).

  • This bug is still in the latest Opera Builds. I've submitted a bug report, but unfortunately the bug tracker is not public. I only have this e-mail address: DNA-39527 in case someone wants to reference it.

  • A workaround: turn spell checking off and on again. Takes like 4 clicks. Annoying but effective until they fix it.
