#5394 new enhancement

Spell Check does not offer alternatives

Currently, Write tells you when a word is wrong, but right clicking on a word does not give you corrections.

Having alternates avalible is important for those who are learning to write, as it helps them learn the correct spelling for words.

Oh crap, this is because we disabled the context menu (because it gave access to stuff we don't want kids to access atm).

The only solution here is a VERY ugly hack in the code to allow only a context menu with some spelling suggestions. Will be a bit of work, but nothing hard. Just ugly.

It's not possible to get this into U.1 (CodeFreeze), retriage, please. (U.1.1, maybe?)
