Spellcheck while posting

    The spellchecker barfs on "stolons". Botany has a huge number of words, almost as bad as Medical terminology. Since I post answers to Botany questions, how can I get the editor to stop marking spelling wrong for specialty words local to a discipline?

    So can I create my very own list of words?

    The spellchecker is a browser function. Sometimes you can right click and add the word to the browser dictionary.

    I use Chrome. After the upgrade, it no longer does spell-checking for me. Do you know how to get it back?

    Hmm I have the latest chrome and it shows up. Might be a setting.

    It was indeed, thanks. Odd that it seemed to have happened about the time of the software change and I can't imagine why I would have switched-it off.
