Hello!

First off, I really enjoy using the LDT. Thank you very much for your great work!

I've found that I make quite a few spelling mistakes in my comments. I see that in other language files, such as C, the default Eclipse spellchecker kicks in to highlight errors. Could something similar be done with the LDT?

Thanks in advance for your time.


Cheers,
DJ

Hi,

Currently, LDT (DLTK) provides spell checking but no spelling engine.
It reuses the JDT one.

So spell checking is not enable in standalong product (because JDT is not embedded).

If you install JDT you should get spellchecking, I know it's not a great solution but we are waiting for JDT/Platform team which should extract the spelling engine in a more generic plug-in.

You can follow this bugs if you want :

https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=394283

You can vote for this bug to try to move the JDT Team on this point :
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=185695

Hope this help and happy to know you appreciate LDT Smile

Simon

Excellent! Thanks for your help, Simon. Installing the JDT did the trick.

I do notice, however, that hovering on a misspelled word doesn't result in a popup that lists the possible actions. Instead, hovering results in a popup that simply states that the word is misspelled. In case this helps anyone else in the future, after some digging, I found that Ctrl+1 (or on Mac Command+1) results in the suggestion popup.

Thanks again for your help!


Cheers!
