Spellcheck indicators (Red underline) disappearing 0 Recommended Answers 94 Replies 192 Upvotes

The red underline that indicates incorrectly spelled words keeps disappearing on me. Especially when I have multiple misspelled words in a text field. If I correct one, the red underline disappears and there are no right click options on the word to fix it.

 I can't seem to find any pattern as to what fields or website it happens in. It has been happening awhile but seems to have gotten worse recently.

I have this happening too -- the red underdots that are supposed to appear when a word's misspelled blink on and off when text is being accessed. So I can use them (eventually) to know that a word's misspelled (sometimes not right away, sometimes quickly, sometimes very slowly); but once I know it's misspelled, I try to click on it and the red underdots disappear as soon as I click, so the word can no longer be corrected.

Same here,  I thought it was just me at first. I tried a few different things (retired  IT) and no such luck. I did a chrome reset, and it still does it. Now I have to get back all my PW cookies. (sigh) You would think a company as successful as google would have an easily accessible help desk with real people.

We are just the unwashed masses now...peasants. Maybe time to switch to Firefox.

I am having the same issue, it's very irritating as both the keyboards I use currently have a malfunctioning key so there are lots of typos. is there anything in common? I have enhanced spellcheck on for british and australian english and I have lots of extensions but none that should affect spellcheck, maybe ublock origin might be a connection?

Typical Google help system and no one is going to help figure this out and fix it! At least Microsoft help offers a canned reply but Google is just to good for that I suppose!

Same issue, very annoying. I see the misspelled words underline and then the unlines just disappears, words clearly misspelled.

Are there any plugins that allow you to right click and spellcheck a box? Grammerly doesn't seem to do this.

Same issue here. Extremely annoying. Also annoying that Google won't comment on this thread.

My partner is dyslexic and relies on this constantly for correcting his spelling errors. It's hard enough for him to write as it is, and this is making it so much harder. He said he has to type a few spaces or characters after the word to get the red underline to show up again. Very time consuming and frustrating. Like you, he has noticed it for awhile, but it has recently gotten far worse. Hope that Google will address it soon.

Turn off the ENHANCED SPELL CHECK
It works just fine then.  Google know all about this I would think ?? Google "Kitten " three times in a day and watch all your targeted adverts start trying to sell you Kitten products ?
But theirs no money in fixing a problem fast.. wait till next update ?
