Description Keith 2019-09-19 06:55:23 UTC
If you enter some text into a cell with a spelling mistake.
Right click on the misspelled word and it offers you a selection of corrections.

If you format the cell to "wrap text automatically" and then try the right click, you are no longer offered the spelling corrections.

I think context menu with spellcheck variants is only for word inside cell but  isn't for cell in general.
I'm not sure which behavior is right when you right click on cell with mistaked word in it...
Samuel, may be you can say your opinion here?

I can't reproduce that. Spelling corrections are also offered in cells with wrapped content.

Example spreadsheet showing for spelling bug

I attached a very simple spreadsheet. Opened a new spreadsheet, typed in a sentance and changed the format of the cell to wrap automatically. The word beautiful will not correct.

Thanks, Keith, for the test sheet.

It seems that the spell checking sometimes doesn't work at cell content with 'wrap text' activated.
