Canvas has spell check enabled even when disabled in Obsidian options

Problem and Impact

When typing in parts of Canvas, “misspelled words” appear with red underlining even though Spellcheck is disabled in Obsidian Options->Editor, with Spellcheck options saying “Dictionary is empty.”

This is especially aggravating given that I use shorthand and abbreviations in Canvas because it’s a scratchpad.

Steps to reproduce

  1. Open a Canvas
  2. Right-click a card and choose Convert to file…
  3. Note that Untitled (the default text) appears with a red underline.
  4. Note that right-clicking Untitled opens the spelll check context menu.

Operating environment

MacBook Pro 14" 2021
macOS Ventura 13.3.1 a
Obsidian v1.3.5

Suggested cause

Could parts of the Obsidian environment (particular dialogs) be managed by higher-level settings for spell check? Electron? Systemwide?

Proposed solution

Diagnose and resolve the problem so that spell check can be disabled across Obsidian.
If something in the O/S or Obsidian architecture might be triggering spell check, identify that and note where those settings can be addressed.

Current workaround (optional)

Put up with it.
