    I'm french and I am using Mailbird with french as default language.

    My problem was :  when I was writing email, all my words was underlined in red ( the spellchecker was configured as default, in english)

    I need to search (and find) this post to understand why.

    => Why the SpellChecker is not automatically linked to the default language? Perhaps an improvement ?

     

    Thanks a lot for this software !

    It would be great if restart was not needed in order to change the language.

    I use English as well as Slovenian (my first language). I now have to restart mailbird every time I send an email in a language that is not currently selected. This means a few restarts every day (or just not using the spell checker in one of the languages, which is what I'm doing).

    Hi Guys

     

    Thank you for your suggestion, we are going to make it so you don't have to restart to change the spell checker language in future update.

    I´ve been using Mailbird for about a week and I´m very happy using it :)

    There´s a problem with the spell checker in the Danish version - the spell checker doesn´t seem to work to check the words at all. can write all sorts of strange and none existing words and it doesn´t notice it with the red mark.

    All the best

    Many years ago I already used Eudora (the best E-mail client then) followed by Mozilla's Firebird which gave me much satisfaction.

    Even in the old days it wasn't necessary to restart the application when I changed the language.

    Even so with modern applications p.e. modern Internet Browsers and MS Office.

    Thanks.

    Would be good to have a Welsh spell check.

    When would you be planning on having a multiple language spell checker without the need of restarting the software?

    In order to disable spell check I had to reboot the computer, not only restart Mailbird.

    +1 for the ability to change the spelling language without having to restart the application.

    For people like myself who have a native language other than English its an huge deal breaker to have to restart the application every time that I have to write something in a different language.
