System spellchecker has the added bonus of text expansion and replacement, at least on Mac.

+1 for privacy.
I’m trying Obsidian because I can keep my info private in my computer, I don’t need/want another ‘app’ calling home.

Support 3rd party tools, like Grammarly, will be great.

In great demand for spellcheck.

+1 for me as well

Really love the app. Thank you for the amazing work :heart: A spell check feature would be killer and is probably my #1 ask

Implemented for english.

Spell checker was added in 0.7.5 and a user dictionary is added in 0.7.6.

If you need another language, please open a separate feature request; I’m moving this main thread to archived.

It is also possible to use the text espander espanso for auto-correction mis-spelled words, e.g. with the following espanso package:

With espanso, the auto-correction is not limited to which text editor to use.

One can also define own espanso packages for spell check or for other purposes.

Hi!

Is there a way to allow Obsidian to use the spell check and dictionaries features of the operating system?

My primary system is Linux, and like everyone else, we have a variety of solutions like Aspell / Spell that could make it “easier” to add spell check support for many languages.

I looked for it here on the forum, but I didn’t find anything similar to that.

Thanks in advance.

LanguageTool is better than Grammarly, as it is Open Source and available in other languages than English. Users can chooses which API they use, while Grammarly is bound to Google.
