How to turn off spell checking in gnome-text-editor

gnome-text-editor see also How to find "console" and "texteditor" seems to have spell check fixed, even dconf-editor shows no options.

Has anyone managed to turn it off? Thanks.

I don’t use gnome-text-editor, but according to the .editorconfig file given on its gitlab page, which looks something like this:

root = true

[*]
charset = utf-8
end_of_line = lf

[*.[ch]]
indent_size = 2
indent_style = space
insert_final_newline = true
max_line_length = 100
tab_width = 2

[*.ui]
indent_size = 2
tab_size = 2
indent_style = space

[*.{xml,xml.*}]
indent_size = 2
tab_size = 2
indent_style = space

Can you try adding a spellcheck = false under the [*] section?

I did not see the dconf-editor entry although looking at it. I guess, this bug may be closed. :laughing:

Appreciate all very good and swift responses. Thank you!

You are welcome! Glad the issue is resolved!

dconf-editor could be a bit labyrinthic. I get lost in there sometimes before I find what I am looking for :sweat_smile:

Have a nice Thursday morning/evening!

Adding spellcheck = false didn’t work? How did you resolve it?

Sorry, have not tried as dconf-editor seems more conveniant - solved, see Solution.

Thanks again!
