Context menu button spellcheck access

Steps to reproduce

Type a text that is obviously misspell.
Place a cursor inside it.
Press Context Menu button on your Windows-compatible keyboard.
Press up/down arrow keys / Escape key

Expected result

It is expected that called menu will be immediately in focus, and that is Escape would cancel it, same as Enter would confirm a replacement.

Actual result

Nothing happens. The focus is still in text, arrows move the cursor up/down in the note itself, not the menu, hitting Escape (or second Context Menu press) doesn’t close the menu.


  • Operating system: Windows 10 Pro x64
  • Obsidian version: 0.11.6

There is a feature request for this.

I can’t see one, sorry: Search results for 'spellcheck category:8' - Obsidian Forum
Can you give me a link, please? Also it feels like a bug, not a request.
And in 0.11.7 the spellcheck menu doesn’t even pop when a Context Menu button is pressed — the ordinary one is displayed at a mouse cursor.
