Description Andrew Hyatt 2018-05-01 16:10:04 UTC
Description:
When the selection is of one word and only that word, the spell checker should come up when it is right clicked. 

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Miss spell a word
2. Double click it to select it
3. Right click it

Actual Results:  
The spelling options that come up when right clicking the non-selected word don't come up. 

Expected Results:
When the selection is of one word and only that word, the spell checker should come up when it is right clicked. 


Reproducible: Always


User Profile Reset: Yes


OpenGL enabled: Yes

Additional Info:
The expected behavior is that of other common word processors (MS Word, Pages, Google Docs, etc).

Right clicking the selected word

The contextual menu should include the spelling suggestions in this situation.

I confirm the observed behaviour and set the bug to NEW. But I also think, that design team should have a look at it. Personally I think the context menu of a selected word should at least include link to spell-checking dialog.

Adding the design team..
Comment 5 Xisco Faulí 2018-05-02 16:24:30 UTC
I would say this is the expected behaviour... Anyway, let the UX Team decide...

Example taken with Firefox

Double-click selects the word and places the cursor right of it. And the cursor position is relevant for the context, meaning whether it's a link, an object, or misspelled word.

So the request is rather to check if the selection left of the cursor is unknown, additionally to the focus, which is common and known for instance in the web browser. Mispelled

I guess this has been the behaviour since the very beginning...
