Spellchecker does not change the correction

Steps to reproduce

  • Open the sandbox vault
  • Enable spellchecker in settings
  • Misspell a word
  • Right click the word
  • Tap the left or right arrow keys
  • Press enter to select the correction

Expected result

I would expect that the correction takes place. Though I could see this being argued as intended

Actual result

The right-click window disappears and does not correct the spelling

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

Thank you for reviewing. I could see this being the intended behavior, but I wanted to double check since I’ve had this happen a few times accidentally.

Here is the video on YouTube since the direct upload failed

why do you do this?

If anything you should use arrow down/up

I accidentally hit the side arrows while using the menu before up and down to select the edit. Its how I noticed this issue.

I will completely understand if you consider the current behavior as intended or too minor of a bug.

This should be fixed in 0.16.x
