I checked available, but did not have to install it again. I guess it was disabled as part of the version upgrade.

welcome to the notepad++ community, @John-Brewer
it’s very nice to hear that, you are very welcome.
many thanks and best regards.
I now see spell check is not working with UPPER CASE terms. I have tested this with both lower case and UPPER CASE words.
Does the spelling plugin also check UPPER CASE terms?
@Meta-Chuh , should I post a new discussion thread on this matter?

Have a look at the settings dialog of DSpellCheck, especially to the
Ignore Wordsoptions. You can find them under
(menu) Plugins -> DSpellCheck -> Settings... -> (register) Advanced -> (group box) Ignore Words. Ensure that option
All Letters Capitalis unchecked.
The box was indeed checked.
I appreciate your kind assistance.
I upgraded Notepad++ today. The spell check is not working automatically anymore. I click the button to Spell Check Documents Automatically to turn spell checking off and on, and the misspelled words are indeed found. I also use the /menu/Plugins/DSpellCheck/Find Next Misspelling and the misspelled words are indeed found. However, the misspelled words are not found as I am typing.
What do I need to do to enable the misspelled words to be discovered as I type, please?

Thank you for the most apprevciated help
Hi, question about DSpellCheck. Is there a way to run spell check so one is presented with a replace option such as F7 in MS Word?
I take it there is no way to run spell check in this manner. Do I hold the correct understanding?

Don’t know - I’m not using MS Word so I can’t say for sure what it is providing.
I would guess if you can add a screenshot or a more detailed description what you
want to have then one who uses DSpellCheck might be able to answer more easily.
Btw. a screenshot must be uploaded to an hoster like imgur … and embedded here using

I believe the poster is after a replace-on-misspelled word function.
Think about Notepad++'s
Replacebutton functionality, but where the
Find whatis the next sqiggly-underlined misspelled word. :)
