With small files, the spell checker works fine and looks nice (unlike the
OpenOffice checker, which, however works better). However, it fails to
recognize certain words and sometimes, after you click the command "change",
the software highlights the same word and displays no suggestion (the word
which, by definition, is correct because you have accepted the first
suggestion). Little things someone knowledgeable might want to work on.
