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.

Reproduced with Version: (x64)

It seems that the spell checking sometimes doesn't work at cell content with 'wrap text' activated.
Comment 5 Hans Zekl 2021-04-01 17:57:15 UTC
Who is taking care of this bug? It is still present in version I made some test and it looks, as if the spell checker is unable to handle several tags <text:p>...</text:p> between <table:table-cell ...> ... </table-cell>.

By the way, in OO the problem does not exist.

An example:
<table:table-cell table:style-name="ce3" office:value-type="string" calcext:value-type="string">
Comment 6 Keith 2022-06-26 09:15:25 UTC
Is this ever going to be looked at?

It has been nearly THREE YEARS and still doesn't work.

As the last comment said it works fine in open office.
Comment 7 Vladica Jovanovski 2022-10-12 11:50:47 UTC
Confirming this bug still persists on "Wrap Text" cells.

Spellcheck/autocorrect is a crucial functionality and it is used frequently on a daily basis; therefore I am kindly asking for someone to take a look into this.

Increasing the importance level might help in this case?

Just checked again as I had given up and it appears that Version it is now working and I can correct spellings!

Which is great news and thankyou to whomever has fixed it.

Thanks for testing, change status to WFM
