    The Editor.....I mean Wood Barter s editor that allows us all to have conversations
    Amongst each other

    How do I turn off the spell checker????

    It seems every mistake I make when creating a thread.....becomes an adventure.

    For example.....if I want to use a word and I misspell it (which I seem to do as I get finger

    See up above ..in the last sentence I.....want to say. Fat finger.......
    ..the editor will not let me insert the word fat......it inserts get......then if I wish to backspace
    To fix a misspelled word...ssomssomrtssomssomrtimssomssomrtssomssomrtimrd
    I may get what you see above
    I know not all editors function with ALL devices......

    I use a Kindle......
    I know not if my device is the cause of this

    Or if this editor is a very old and possibly needs changes and upgrades.I
    I know that statement will probably ruffle feathers



    Consequently . It takes me about 3x as long to input a thread or conversation
    I
    I am not wishing to knock or complain about this software......or stir up unneeded problems
    And I am probably just needing a bit more time to get use to Wood Barter software....

    I am very new( just a few months) .A member.....and I love wood barter.
    But this.....my problem is not going away
    Does this make any sense to anybody else or am I crazyccceeexxxzeeer

    The spell check is probably on what your using (which I believe you said a kindle), and not with WB. But what do I know!

    I don't believe our software has spell check. I think Eric is right, you need to disable it on your Kindle.

    Swipe down from the top of the home page.
    hit the setting function. (looks like a gear.)
    scroll down to the "personal" section. click on keyboard & language
    scroll down to current keyboard settings
    turn em all off....suggestions...off
    gesture...off
    auto caps...off...or leave that one on. Up to you.
    auto correction...off----that's the one that needs to canned!
    spell checking....off
    next word suggestions....off

    that should be it.....
