I have a long-standing problem that occurs every time I have SC "check all" or "check selection." SC identifies all words that begin in "fl" or "if" as misspelled. It shows the section of the word after the fl as the word that is misspelled, ignoring the fl. I have used "ignore all" as a work-around, but this means that I can't actually check any words that begin with those letters.

Are you certain it's an "fi", or is it perhaps a ligature "fi"?

Can you send me a screen shot, along with some example text to select and use with Check Selection?

Evan,

I doubt it’s a ligature, since I specifically set my word processors prefs against creating them. OTOH, who knows what hides in the minds of programmers <heh, heh, heh...>

I’ll get a screen shot as soon as I next get on the computer.
