    Spell check in Quanta

    Spell check is not working in Quanta. Is there some trick I need to know? It works in Kate and Advanced Editor (which is the editor Quanta uses). ??? ???

    I am missing something?

    Its for HTML and web development. My web sites are almost 100% text and include essays. I was thinking that I might as well write the essay contents in the web editor as oppossed to writing them in a seperate text editor and then importing them into Quanta. I can do that, of course, but I figured since there is a spell check button on the toolbar in Quanta it might save a step.

    run your html docs through ispell, then tell it to ignore the HTML tags that it finds.

    Well, when I run spell check in Kate on an HTML doc it invokes ispell and automagicly knows to ignore the HTML tags.

    Honestly, I think I prefer writing HTML by hand in a text editor. Quanta seems kind of clunky to me, though I've only fiddled with it a bit today. Guess, too, it depends on what kind of code you need to make. Mine is very, very simple HTML that is just faster to write by hand.

    Trust me, all the best websites were written by hand. Nothing good ever came of a WYSIWYG HTML editor

    Quanta is not really a WYSIWYG editor. It's mostly the text editor style but have form and CSS creation area. It greatly improved the designing of the web pages.

    To answer original answer, I don't think you can do spell checking with Quanta. ( or at least that I havent' found them yet ). I will look for it when I have a chance.
