I am writing a document in Google Drive (I still call it Google Docs) using the StackEdit.io editor.

I have Google Chrome's spell checker disabled. StackEdit.io provides one and I like it that way. Misspelled words are underlined, but sometimes I can't figure out my mistake (English is not my mother tongue).

stackedit showing typo

Is there a way in StackEdit.io to show the spelling suggestions for a misspelled word?

I'm the developer.

It supposed to work, but it's pretty buggy, on Chrome particularly. There is an open issue on GitHub about that and on ACE repo as well.

As a workaround, you can use the "Light mode" (Settings>Advanced) which will replace the ACE editor by a textarea.

  • Great ! Keep up the good work, I love StackEdit !
