Native Mac Spell Checker

On a Mac, any text editor, including even web forms in Safari, support spell checking, it can be invoked with a command + shift + ; keyboard combination. Is there any plans to enable this please? I think the custom spell check engine should be an option in the settings and disabled by default.

Thank you for reading.

Yes because I need French spell check!!!

There is a feature request for spell check. Follow that. It won’t be the native mac one.

@WhiteNoise please provide with a link to the request, I couldn’t find it. It is unfortunate to hear that developers continue to improve Obsidian own spell checker. I recommend to reconsider and I would gladly help you getting rid of the current implementation in favour of the macOS solution.

Absolutely agree with this. The native Mac spellchecker is way better than what is currently included with Obsidian, plus it will do autocorrect. I suspect the problem is that the Mac version is probably not really ‘native Mac’ and so that functionality is not straightforwardly available. Could that be the case?
