Bug Fixes:

  • SCAYT plugin for CKEditor: MultiLanguage: When SCAYT is enabled, the “Remove Language” command would log the exception in the browser console.
  • SCAYT Core: Arabic symbols are ignored when “scayt_ignoreAllCapsWords” is set to ‘true’.
  • WebSpellChecker: If Multi-lingual content (e.g. Arabic & English) is being spell-checked and the default language of the dialog is set to English, after the language is changed to Arabic, it doesn’t provide suggestions for the Arabic text if you click on a non-Arabic word first.
  • GitHub #140: Aside tag gets duplicated when ENTER_BR and SCAYT is used.
