Bug Fixes

WProofreader

  • [WP-2850, WP-2855]: WProofreader: Incorrect underlining of spelling and grammar problems when a rich text editor or HTML editable control for right to left languages (such as Arabic, Hebrew, etc.).

WebSpellChecker Server 5.4.3 Release Notes

Enhancements

WProofreader v1.9

A new virtual mechanism has been introduced for processing and underlying spelling and grammar errors in the wide range of the editable fields (HTML editable elements, and classic rich text editors such as CKEditor 4, Froala Editor, TinyMCE, etc.). With such an approach WProofreader creates a separate virtual layer behind the original element, and doesn’t affect the original content.

Previously, it added extra span elements with styles to wrap incorrect words and phrases. In certain cases those extra elements were saved to a database which resulted in the text pollution with unwanted text unless those elements are cleaned with the additional function. The new mechanism eliminates those issues.

Bug Fixes

WProofreader

  • [WP-2859]: WProofreader: Extra spans elements added to the source mode of editors vs saved to a database.

WebSpellChecker Server 5.4.2 Release Notes

Enhancements

  • [WP-2796]: WProofreader: The replaced word changes formatting if other formatted word is currently focused.
  • [WP-2802]: WProofreader: Underline is not removed for a spelling/grammar problem before a separator symbol.
