Windows 7: How do I get Spell-Checker to learn words?

Courtesy of: Your patience with me and Google Chrome, I've managed to teach this computer that its Default Language is "English (Canada)" but no TinySpell Box opened for "TinySpell".

What am I doing incorrectly?

Also, how do I increase the Font Size in the Reply Window?

Also, why does Chrome believe that Reply Windows need to be 2 miles wide?

Also, courtesy of Belarc Advisor (again, no Box opened) I can now give you 100% of the Specifications for this Computer which may be unique. The Computer Repair Shop that created this Online Computer ($500 CDN) also created a Stand-Alone SATA-IDE Transitional Computer ($0) which, when I finally get 'round to hooking it up, will be a Dual Boot Computer: Xandros 3.0.1 (Linux Master) and Windows XP Professional + SP3 in 64-Bit (Slave) which I need to run AutoCAD 2007.

Callender, I have a Life-Philosophy that I stole from Andy Griffith, "Ain't nuthin', wurth anithin', what's easy."

I'm not sure. Tinyspell needs to be actually running. It should work when typing in chrome by default. Personally I avoid Chrome and do not have it installed. However I do have a close alternative Chromium based browser and the TinySpell box appears at the top of the screen. In other applications I use the box always opens next to the words being typed.

If Tinyspell is not working in Chrome try right clicking the TinySpell icon in the system tray (bottom right of screen) and then click "Applications"

Check that Chrome is not listed under disabled applications and add chrome.exe process by name in "Add Application"

Write a reply and click the "Advanced" button.

Then you can highlight text and choose size. Or you can just use tags.

Like this:

Script:
[Size="10"]Bigger[/Size
Resulting in this:

Bigger

I have no idea on that. Maybe tab settings or something. Can anyone who uses Chrome help out here? Thanks.

Don't give up yet, Callender. The "Reply Window" that I have, doesn't have all the Bells and Whistles that yours does.

That being said there's still *some* progress. Have a look at the attached multi-screenshot edited image.

Well I suspect that maybe something to do with Chrome configuration or some type of content/ script blocking Chrome addon. Unfortunately I don't use Chrome.

Try using the "Quick Reply" box then "Go Advanced"

I've met with some progress but not a lot, tinySpell is slowly but surely learning new words but it's still a long ways from becoming this Author's "Best Friend".

Pursuant to the above, I think that tinySpell might learn faster if I installed Grammarly: an add-on program for Chrome that not only checks Spelling, it also checks Sentence Composition. Have you read or seen any feedback on this program?

(By the way, clicking "Go Advanced" was an excellent idea and I thank you for it, my Friend.)

Sorry but I'm one of those users who avoid Chrome. I do have SRWare Iron portable and SlimJet portable browsers that are based on Chrome but with no extensions installed. I have not used Grammarly.

Since Chrome seems to be a particular problem why not add it to excluded processes list in Tinyspell?

Right click Tinyspell icon in system tray and then "Applications" and add chrome.exe to disabled applications list. If Grammarly works in Chrome - go for it!

For other apps/ browsers/ text editors Tinyspell should work okay.

Point 1:
While [Size = 10]Bigger[/Size] does result in the reply being considerably larger, it doesn't do anything about increasing the Font Size from the POV (point of view) of the Writer.

Point 2:

This Point is partly my fault and partly yours.

In my previously posted screenshot you'll see "Select applications for tinySpell" underneath which you'll see "tinySpell is normally Enabled" which reveals a Blank Page. This is due to the fact that tinySpell is normally enabled for Everything!

The part that's your fault is that you continue to misspell tinySpell's name. tinySpell is spelt with a Lower-Case "t", not a Capital, and tinySpell objects to the misspelling of its name.

End Point
Insofar as the original topic is concerned, it's solved. However, I have a closing question.

How many Posts must I post before my On-File Avatar shows?

Okay I stand corrected on how to spell tinySpell.

As for Avatars not showing up - as far as i know they should be visible without needing a certain number of posts.

Profile picture is for profile only. What you want is to upload an avatar (100 x 100) in your User control panel. Maybe the avatar you wish to use is over the size limit?

We've covered a lot of ground with this thread, not all of it germane to this subject's Title but useful nevertheless to anyone who's new to Seven Forums.

My "Closing Question" is particularly useful as when a New User wishes to add their own Avatar, they're met with an incongruity or, if they don't like big words, something that doesn't make sense.

"UserCP" meant nothing to me until, in desperation (because nothing else had proven useful) I clicked the link and discovered that it meant "User Control Panel". After fumbling my way around I eventually found "Custom Avatar" and ran head-on into the incongruity, "The maximum size of your custom image is 100 by 100 pixels".

When Personal Computers were first introduced the Screen Resolution for a 1024 by 768 pixel Monitor was 85 pixels per inch. The Flat Screen Monitors of today, however, have a Screen Resolution of 2400 pixels per inch and Hand-Held Mobile Devices exceed that. Presuming that the New User is using a Flat Screen Monitor that means that a 100 by 100 pixel custom image measures approximately 1 millimetre by 1 millimetre. Nobody would ever see it!

After picking up my almost-seven-decades-old jaw, up off the floor, I read the remainder of the sentence, "or 100.0 KB (whichever is smaller)." Considering the Screen Resolutions of today, somebody really ought to work on the wording of that sentence.

As you can no doubt see, my Custom Avatar is in place. It measures 37.7 KB or 299 by 299 pixels but only due to the fact that it's a "Joint Projects Group" Image.

Because Units are irrelevant, the sentence should be reworded to read as, "The maximum size of your custom image is 100 by 100 pixels or 100.0 KB (whichever number is smaller)."

Subject Solved

Callender, what say you and I collaborate on a thread entitled, "An Alphabetical List of Computer Abbreviations"?
