I note that when I misspell a word in a post, I get the squiggly red line under it, but there doesn't seem to be a mechanism in place (or if so I don't know how to use it) to easily check and correct spelling. Am I missing something? I end up opening a new tab and figuring out the correct spelling off-site then coming back to correct. I'm rather tweaky about using proper language, which seems to becoming a lost skill.
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.

Well. That is certainly simple. And will save me tons of time switching between tabs. Sheesh. Thanks!!

It's limited and not always correct. Sometimes you have to click the 'add' button when you know it's the right spelling. Every time I wrote daylily, I got the red "wrong spelling" and it suggested day lily. I finally 'added' it so it would stop annoying me. nodding

I have found that when I see the wrong spelling squigley line, I click on it, and see the "show correct spelling' but it doesn't show anything. I'm on Firefox when that happens.

As Karen alluded to, this is normally a function attached to your browser (Firefox, Chrome, Microsoft Edge, etc). Between them, the dictionary/spell correct function might differ.
