1. Treats the string "\nHello" as the word nHello, which is a mis-spelled word. Would be nice if it could be configured to treat \ as an escape character for C and C++ code.
2. No way to explicitly search a file. If a want to search an entire file for spelling mistakes it's a pain in the @$$ to eye-ball a 10,000 line file for red squiggly marks. Would be nice to have a small GUI with options likes Ignore Word, Ignore All, Add to Dictionary, Change Word, Change All, etc.
3. Doesn't check for duplicate words, which is a nice feature of some spell-checkers.
4. Would be nice to be able to import/export words, with the import/export file format being a list of words separated by lines in a file.
A helpful utility, but not a full replacement for a spell-checker.
SUGGESTION (PLAESE CONSIDER): The spellchecker should have an option to check inside the class/function/variable names when written in the CamelCaseStyle.
Reason: it is very annoying whne progremmers make extreme mstakes in the function names, which can not be corrected easily because e.g. it is a webserice operation contract etc. This feature would be very useful to prevent this :)
Yup. The project had been locked for some reason (the admins had no idea why, so they unlocked it), so I wasn't able to update it with the rest of my extensions. I'll try to get to it soon (it's all built, just not uploaded).
You can try:
Download extension, extract it with a zip program, edit the extension.vsixmanifest and add VisualStudio Version="12.0" (maybe also add some more versions like premium) and the SupportedFrameworkRuntimeEdition to MaxVersion="4.5". Add this file again to the extension file (using a zip program like 7zip/winzip/winrar)and install ;)
Since we can install language packs in VS 2013 to fit our personal liking (e.g. non-English OS, but VS with English GUI), IMHO it would just be logical to change Spell Checker to use this instead of the OS GUI's language.
So, would you mind to change the language dependency from OS to VS? Or implement a way to set this up manually - without downloading and compiling your extension's code? :)
Greate extension !
Works well in VS13, but when I open existing project with lots of spellings errors I would like NOT to show each error in my scroll bar (when its in map mode)
How can hide the warnings?
Thank you guys for this extender! It truly is a great asset.
I did notice once thing today though. It didn't catch the misspelling inside of an ajax:ConfirmButtonExtender's ConfirmText field. I thought I would pass this on.
Hi and thanks for this useful extention.
I'm trying to follow a previous comment that you write but unable to open the source code in Vs2012 in order to set the default language to English instead of my windows env in french.
How can I do this please ?
I comment out code lines from time to time during experimentation, then I got all the squiggly lines for code using "//" commenting out.
"///" Are used for commenting and really need to be spell checked, but maybe double comment out "////" by pressing CTRL K + C twice the spell checker could just ignore checking that since its verbosely commented out?
Thanks any way for great plugin!
I probably won't update it for that, though I do understand the frustration. If you are using c++, you could try #if 0ing out the block (my personal preference, since it also plays nicely with comments that are already there and is easy to re-enable by switching to #if 1). Sorry :-/
