Spell checking comments on the fly
« on: June 30, 2012, 10:06:12 pm »
I just thought of a some simple improvements that would make the editor so much more productive (for me at least) - Given that SlickEdit knows when we are typing comments, why not auto-correct with the red wavy lines like Microsoft Word does.  Simple things like 'teh' to 'the' corrections etc. could also be transposed in real time.  This would be a real time saver.  So far it looks like the only similar feature in SlickEdit is the detection of repeated words, but even that is a manual process after the fact. 
Also taking Microsoft word as a sort of template model, when spell checking double clicking on the selected word replaces it, in SlickEdit, unfortunately one has to select the 'Change' button.  This requires a few extra key clicks while going through a lot of spelling errors in Java or Doxygen comments.
