Sudden issues with spell check and text display!

edited 12/09/19 in Smartsheet Basics

Hello. I have 2 related issues that happened simultaneously and suddenly (1 week ago):

(1) although in my personal settings I have English (United States) as regional preference, all correct English words are now underlined in red!

(2) in the text/numbers boxes I use to write paragraphs without any problem. Now the sentences are not showing correctly: the words at the end are cut when going to the next line (see attached)

I hope there is a quick fix because this is very weird and inconvenient!

Thanks for help

    Hi J.,

    Smartsheet doesn't offer a native spell check feature - we can use the spell check functionality from your browser. I suggest checking your browser settings and also any extensions you may have. 

    For the words being cut off, do you have word wrap enabled?

    Hi Kara,

    For the 1st issue, yes indeed it was my browser's problem. I don't know why it turned off English Spell Check! now it's working. Many thanks!

    For the 2nd issue I don't think it's a matter of word wrap. I usually do not use word wrap (I don't want to increase the width of the rows). When I want to copy-paste the content into a PowerPoint slide for example, I never had this problem before even without word wrap. Now if I select the text and copy-paste it into the PPT slide, it looks like the attached capture. This never happened since I started using Smartsheet back in 2016. There must be a setting...

    Thanks again for your support.

    I'd be happy to take a look.

    Can you share a copy of the sheet and maybe also a copy of the PPT? That would make it easier to help. (share too,

    Have a fantastic weekend!
