Can you provide a bit more info? Possibly a screenshot of where is this happening?
Where does spell checking does not work in TW, which works in a Solo project?

It is indeed a curious issue because whether you are in Teamwork or Solo project should have nothing to do with this.

Hi Giuseppe,

Thank you very much for the question!

On Windows, Spell Checker uses Microsoft Word’s Spelling Check, which means that you must have Microsoft Word installed on your computer together with the dictionary of the language you are using. On macOS, Spell Checker uses macOS system preferences.

You can find more information about the Spell Checker here.

As Laszlo mentioned, the Spell Checker functionality does not depend on whether the project is a solo or a teamwork project. But let me know if the article above helps to solve your issue!

Best regards,

If you click the Preference button, what are the settings? Can you show a screenshot?

Also, it talks about "editable elements". Maybe you have to reserve the elements you want to perform Spell Check on since if it finds spelling errors it will have to be able to modify the element, and for that, the element must be reserved by you.
