Spell Check matters

researching how to remove the pop-up distraction for authors who won’t even be able to use what is being advertised. 

the “hosted” link in the popup advertisement goes to this page

the “licensed” link goes here

Neither link provides a practical solution for any of our authors given our current state of development.

The problem is that setting “no spell checker” does not remove the popup advertising. 

info about nanospell – says is not add supported (so should not be the source of the popup)

info about SCAYT Note: The out-of-the-box spell checking functionality is ad-supported. If you want to remove the ads, you can purchase a license here.

Just discovered that you can disable the SCAYT and hence the popups entirely via this button. 

Problem is that it also disabels the native browser spell checking. pondering

Native Browser Spell Checker

By default, browser native spell check functionality is disabled in the editor. Use the CKEDITOR.config.disableNativeSpellChecker configuration option to enable it:

config.disableNativeSpellChecker = false;
the question is why this does not happen even though “no spell checker” is chosen in my profile.
