I am experiencing two major issues with the Spell Check tool in Reckon Accounts Premier 2013. The two issues are...
  1. Spell Check will highlight every word (imply a spelling error) regardless of whether the word is spelled correctly or not.
  2. Spell Check does not suggest any replacement words for incorrectly spelled words.
Additional Information:
  • Operating system is Windows 10 Pro x64
  • Issue occurred after upgrading from QuickBooks 2012
  • Issue occurs on every pc running Reckon Accounts Premier 2013
  • Found one solution in this community, but it hasn't helped. (restore SPELL.ini)
  • Spelling options have been restored to defaults (in preferences).
  • Windows Language preferences are correct and only one language pack is installed (Australian: English)
Please Help!

I didn't even know there was a spell check. Where do you find it normally?

Create an invoice, then look for the 'Spelling' button at the top of the invoice window.

Hi John,

Thanks for the links. I tried restoring the SPELL.ini file again (from the download link provided in one of the support threads you linked) and thankfully it worked this time.
Spell check now works as expected.

Thanks for your help.
