No seriously, I am not the best typist, I am terrible at checking through my posts to spot spelling errors, until after I hit POST. Is there anyway an auto spell check could be added here, please?

You can manually spell-check your post by clicking the ABC button:

But it's slow and not a very good spell-checker. The forum software explicitly disables the automatic spell-checker built-in to your browser:

https://community.adobe.com/t5/community-feedback/re-enable-browser-spell-checking/m-p/10695795#M487 

 

Though it's trivial to remove that disabling in the HTML, Adobe and its software vendor have so far refused to make that change.

Yeah why cannot we use the auto spellchecker from the browser.

Ann we all know the reason why that can't be done.

1) It would take to much time.

2) The enginerrs are looking into it.

3) It's on the Feedback Tracker list but no time frame specified

And on and on and on.

you said it (well, wrote it):"

why? it wastes so much time and leads to so many posts with spelling errors! Its hard to know why anyone would support browser spellcheck disabling. The way it works too, you cant click within a highlighted word to edit it if none of the suggestions are right - unless you click nearby and move the cursor using arrow keys to get "into" the offending word. More time wasted. 

 

I hope this helps

Why? Because the Engineers are looking into it. We have been in contact with the vendor and they say "That Will Take Time", YADA YADA YADA and nothing gets done (at least nothing that we have been asking for).
