          Sorry, but I think it's funny that the thread title is misspelled...or did you do that on purpose?

            My spell checker is possessed with evil spirits, it changes random words into other random words, somtimes funny, but defining telly (definitely) unrelated I think it may need psychiatric help or exercising (exorcism)

                Yes, the browsers should have a spell checker built in. I am using Firefox and it does. IE also has one. I often wonder if any of them are shared with other programs.

                The one that Firefox uses is not the best. It often does not have the words I want to use, especially on this and similar boards so I am constantly checking the proper spelling with an on-line dictionary and adding it to the spell checker here. I just did that on my previous post.

                But remember, this is a machining board, not a spelling and grammar board. Many of us make mistakes but as long as the meaning is clear, that makes little difference.

                  Most people go through life spelling words only one way...it is up to some of us with creative minds to offer alternatives...if others don't see the genius in that, there is little else we can do for them....

                    But sometimes the spelling is so bad that the meaning in not clear.

                      After you paste it are you still able to edit it ?

                        I can't spell for crap either! What is it about machinists and spelling? I started working in job shops when I was 16 and very few machinists I've worked with over the years can spell. I guess you can only be good at so many things at a time

                            A better answer to your guestion wood be that after you paste it works just like you had typed, until send it. Then you can even edit even edit after you post it. Ijust edit my original post to see if I could.
