Is there a way to turn off spell-checking in the new browserkit in the SL Viewer?

Question

  • 0

At this time it would appear that currently there is no way to turn off the dictionary spell check feature of the new CEF [Chromium Embedded Framework] as implemented in the current SL Viewer. I looked into the CEF Wiki for a language setting feature which would allow you to at least specify your own native language as a valid dictionary source.

Chromium Embedded Framework does have a complete dictionary look up function set. It does allow for the source dictionary to be changed when using string look-ups. However the ability to change the dictionary must be exposed by the interface programmer.

As you have correctly noted the spelling look-up function is included [with a default English dictionary] but the "insertion point/cursor hover over the highlighted word in question action" does produce a target word replacement list. Nor does it offer an "add word to the dictionary" or "select a new dictionary" option. These options have to be added [exposed availibility] to the User Interface by the Linden Lab programming team.

This would be a nice Feature Set Request to make. [re: Add the ability to add words to a user dictionary list, change the language dictionary source to be used & to turn the feature on or off alltogether]

P.S. Have you tried to effect this change by changing the Viewer Language to your native Language? Perhaps the underlying source dictionary might be changed as well for the CEF Kit.

No it doesn't help to change the viewer's language. Of course that wouldn't be an acceptable solution for me, anyways.

CEF does offer the ability to turn off spell checking (by specifying NULL or an empty string for the dictionary-source).

It's really annoying that noone at LL thought of that before rolling out the new viewer version with this badly implemented CEF.

Yes you are correct regarding one of the methods to turn off the spell checking. A possible place to check may be in one of the SL Viewer configuration .XML files to see if any of the CEF parameters are included there in static form. If so, with careful testing perhaps a manual change might accomplish this purpose.

EDIT - I examined the current viewer .XML files and found no CEF parameters outside of the individual account cookie cache and the cef_cache..
