Description Wyndham Clampett 2012-03-28 02:21:15 UTC
Problem description: 
One of the more irritating aspects of the Spell & Grammar dialog, is that it doesn't refresh on Resume.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Spell check finds error and displays dialog box
2. Make change directly in the document (e.g. use "find and replace all" because the "replace all" option seldom works)
3. Click on dialog box (anywhere) and the resume button is displayed
4. The old error remains displayed.

Current behavior:
As indicated above

Expected behavior:
On clicking resume, the current error should be re-checked and the dialog box refreshed as appropriate.

New (Confirmed)

Enhancement (this is a feature that works as expected but your suggestion is indeed a good one)

Low (wouldn't really help a ton of people, only saves a bit of time under a very specific scenario)

Thanks for reporting and for being patient as we triage the backlog.
