Thorough explanation of the problem: I use a lot of abbreviations that I may or may not ever need to use again which spell check often snags as incorrect. Sometimes I add them, sometimes not. Today I was writing a lot of surnames along with details. I got sick of the red squiggles and knowing I would definitely use those surnames again, I began adding them like crazy. Unfortunately for me, I'm faster at doing that than my brain can work because I added misspelled words (not names, not that it matters). I find it discouraging that it is so hard to correct spell check dictionaries. I'm not calling out Evernote because I blame Windows for making it difficult. I tried reading this: https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/17609-how-to-edit-evernote-dictionary/ and this https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/25994-add-remove-words-spell-checking-dictionary-windows-10-a.html#option2 because I thought that perhaps since the first one didn't work, maybe it was a Windows thing. It didn't matter, neither of them work, for one, the default.dic file was empty so that was no help. I tried deleting it and it was unchanged. I am at a loss on how to handle this. Quick problem (for those TLDR folks): How do I edit words that I have accidentally added to spell check, as okay? It is not in C:\Users\magnoliasouth\AppData\Local\Evernote\Evernote\Dict\user.dic or any folder past C:\Users\magnoliasouth\AppData\Local\Evernote* Oh and no, my PC doesn't name me as magnoliasouth.
I have been using Evernote for windows for a while. I am currently running version 126.96.36.19988. I started noticing a few weeks ago that evernote's build in spell-check is flagging all my contractions. For example when I am typing it underlines words that are spelled wrong in red. I do not use the menu version to spell checking the whole note. While typing words such as Don't (do not), Can't (can not), Won't (would not) are flagged incorrect. When the righ-click menu suggests the root word as a correction (do instead of don't, etc.). This has never been an issue before. I have not change anything regarding the dictionary or words in the dictionary. It is not happening in any other program on my computer that has this type of active spell check feature.
I'm new to the Evernote forum, so I apologize for adding this in the wrong section. I just started using this app on my iPad mini a few months ago. I love the new ios 7 design, but I'm already confused on a lot of things. First, ever since Evernote updated for ios 7, the adding and customizing hyperlink button at the bottom of the note screen is gone. Sometimes my numbers would also highlight as if they were urls, but they're not. How can I link/unlink urls? Can we customize them anymore? Second, the spell check has been acting up. I have to tap it twice to get the "Replace" option to fix my spelling. Incorrect spelling has also stopped underlining. What am I doing wrong with the new ios 7 Evernote?
