Description Peter Warrington 2019-11-23 14:55:05 UTC
Description:
The Spell Check option (Where it goes through every issue in the document one-by-one with options) is difficult to find, being hidden within the 'Review' Context menu in the 'Review' tab when in 'Tabbed' mode.

I believe this is an issue, as this is a very important feature, esspecially those coming from a MS word background, and is instead very difficult to find when hidden behind a unfamiliar set of menus.

I mean, I'm not experienced and just throwing some ideas out there, but there could be a Spell Check button in the bottom toolbar, or the window could simply be more prominant.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use 'Tabbed' UI Mode
2. Go into 'Review' menu
3. Go into 'Review' context menu
4. Click on 'Spelling...'

Actual Results:
Opened the Spelling menu, but it should have been easier to find.

Expected Results:
Should be able to find the option easily


Reproducible: Always


User Profile Reset: No

Oh, Yep. Can't beleive I couldn't see that. Still, you could argue it is hard to find for the average user. But, yeah. I'mna close this bug.
