Spell checker doesn't perform correction 60% of the time

Steps to reproduce

  1. Turn on the obsidian spelling correction
  2. Make a spelling mistake
  3. Wait for the red lines to appear
  4. Click one of the suggested corrections
  5. Observe that it doesn’t actually fix it
  6. If it did fix it try again with another word maybe until it happens.

Expected result

The expected result it that a spelling correction fixes a mistake every time

Actual result

The spelling corrections are fixed only sometimes.

I tried disabling the language tool plugin but that had no effect.

Post a screen recording of this happening in the sandbox vault.

I did not seem to happen for me in the sandbox vault.

Ok, figure out which plugin is causing this and report it to the respective dev.
