Bug Description


I use windows 7 64 bit with SP1, calibre version 2.76.

I have a feature request for the editor, more specically the "check spelling" window. Normally, when you click on a mispelled word, a list of spelling suggestions appears on the right.

When there are no matches, no suggestions are shown, which is logical. In that case, the user has to fill in manually "change selected word to:". However, nearly always I have to fill in a word that is very similar to the original word. It would be a timesaver if the original word would be copied into "change selected word to:" when there are no matches. The user would be able to quickly adjust the mispelled word.

I hope you understand me.

Thank you for calibre, I use it very day.

Fixed in branch master. The fix will be in the next release. calibre is usually released every Friday.
