New issue when composing email in Outlook


Marie Nelson
 

Twice in the last two days I have sent messages that sound like a Loony tunes or as if I were drunk! I hear a spelling mistake and go back to correct  it, and without realizing it, the cursor is skipping to another part of the message? I should have re-read the message before sending but never had this particular problem in the past.

              I will be more careful now so I don’t sound stupid (hopefully) in the future and apologize for the posts.

Maybe it would be easier to use the f7 spellchecker after the message is written, since you have the problem, rather than correcting errors as you do now.

I have mine set to spellcheck before sending.

So when I hit Alt+S to send the message, it spellchecks automatically.

Yes and I do use that, but when I hear the alert of the misspelled word, I find it easy to back up and correct it right away, since I normally know what the correct spelling is for the word.

Have you tried what may be an even faster method?  When you hear a flagged word, with the cursor on the word, open the context menu.  You will likely hear the correct word if you down arrow, often just once or twice.  Press enter and the correct spelling replaces the incorrect one.

I always run Spell Check with Outlook. The spell as you go works on my iPhone, but in Outlook, F7 is the way to go for me.

You can go into Outlook settings and set it to where it won't send an email without running spell check; in other words, it automatically does it. Also, I would guess that in settings you could change the feature to flag misspelled words as you go.

I don’t know what Outlook does, but Thunderbird flags misspelled words by default.
