Is there a way to get rid of the squiggly red lines?
Yesterday, I started the reverse tree for Spanish, and so far it has been going very well, however I have come across a pretty annoying issue. Because I am a native speaker of English, EVERY SINGLE SPANISH WORD has a red line under it as soon as I type it, naturally making me feel like something is wrong, and constantly finding myself looking back to try to correct it.
Does anyone know how to fix this problem? Also, if I put this in the wrong discussion topic, please let me know.
Thank you in advance,
This has to do with your device settings and the spell checker you have running when using the English keyboard to write. If you switched to a Spanish keyboard when typing in Spanish, it shouldn't happen.
I use the English US International keyboard that allows me to put accents in French and Spanish and always have those lines because the spell check only recognises English words. I also sometimes forget to switch keyboard for Greek and start typing with the English keyboard. :/
I am pretty sure this should be in Troubleshooting, since it is not about the language but the technical issues of learning (within Duolingo).
I've also found this occasionally annoying. I use the Eng/US-International keyboard layout when writing Spanish. It's what I know, and it works great for all of the standard accents and symbols I typically need in Spanish.
Those appear in "misspelled words". If you can change the keyboard/overall language, then it wont happen anymore. Though I may be wrong.
I have had the same problem, for I have started the reverse tree as well :)
I haven't been able to fix them though, but have learned to live with them. If anyone knows the answer, it would help me, as well as you. :)
you can find the word that you know is correct but has a squiggly line, right click, and click add to dictionary
