Spell checking on Jive forums

OK, this may have already been discussed, but I swear I looked. I searched "spell check" and didn't find it. If I missed it, please just point me in that direction and lock this thread.

Thanks.

<rant>

These are the Adobe forums. Why does the spell checker flag the names of Adobe products like "Lightroom"? Why are names of codecs or formats like tif flagged. Heck, why is "codec" flagged?

Why is Photoshop flagged if I type it photoshop? You know it is now a verb as well as a noun.

It just seems wrong to me that I have to look through a long post to find the errors only to find out that the only errors are names of Adobe products or commonly used words in a video or photo editing world.

Doesn't Adobe have any pull with the Jive folks at all?

Steven,

This archived thread seems to indicate that specll checking is by browser only.

http://forums.adobe.com/message/3296840#3296840

I missed it back then, but now a search brought it up.

Jacob,

My spell checker works fine. It is just Adobe related words and video codecs, and the word codec itself (I know it should be all caps, but who bothers?).

I am not user my browser's spell checker. I am using the spell checker provided by the Adobe forum and this forum software should know that photoshop is not spelled wrong, neither is codec, or wmv, or jpg.

Yet all of them are underlined.

I see, Steven.

I never use spell checking, so I thought the old thread (still) described the situation.

Looks like a dictionary got lost or mangled in an update. Feel free to list other words here and we can build it up again.

Neither am I.   In fact I don't use the Adobe speller because it has never worked for me.

If you are going to play games, you could at least try to find words that mean the same thing but do not happen to be in the Jive dictionary. That would be a challenge.

Are you suggesting that adobe-admin was not telling the truth? Or just not planning on doing what was promised?

Nobody is suggesting anything here.  People are simply observing the pace of change on these forums.  Somethings get done quickly while others take a lifetime.  You just have to get used to it.

Adobe-Admin can't control everything here because his superiors may not allow certain changes if a cost is involved in making the change.

I am reasonably certain that calling my requests for additions to the Jive dictionary a "pointless exercise" is suggesting something. You might want to read Joe's posts and see if you really believe that he wasn't.

I would just ignore him.  I am sure he didn't mean anything sinister.  He was simply joking.

You take things very seriously.  These are open forums and people can write almost anything they can get away with.  Some posts get censored while others don't.  It depends on who is online.
