    This is a critical feature to me: Workflowy is excellent but I often need to extract and share information from Workflowy - it becomes immediately out of sync when I need to spellcheck that extracted content to share it with a straight face :)  For professional adoption this is a necessary functionality.

    Another vote for this. Allowing the native system spellcheck to work in the macOS app would be ideal. That would also ensure that text replacement (as configured in System Preferences -> Keyboard) works.

    Spell checking on the Mac desktop app would be very helpful

    This (still) seems like low hanging fruit.

    How do you run spell check to get rid of those annoying red lines? My company name is not a word in English, for example.

    Hi Sarah,

    I guess the instructions depend on the browser you're using... but, for instance, here's what can be done in Chrome:

    1. Red, underlined words/ phrases: Right click on the word/ phrase and select "Add to dictionary" or just "A"

    2. You can activate Chrome to do spellcheck for more than one language. I have activated for English and Portuguese. Right click on a space in a text field where there is no word and select "Spell check"... where you will see options you can configure.

    Yep, spellchecking is on the top of my list of desired features for Workflowy.

    I pretty much only use the Desktop app (on macOS).

    I would very much like to see SPELLCHECK added.

    Kind regards,

    So, given the break neck pace in other developments like transclusion, dates, boards, etc. It seems like the macos app simply isn't a priority. I use WorkFlowy on MacOs and I just use it as a chromeapp and enable grammerly. Works great. Is there some feature that'd keep you on the actual app? I may be wrong about this but isn't it just an electron wrapper of the site as is anyways?

    I have just recently started using this app on the free tier but really am enjoying it. I was considering upgrading to the paid tier but seeing there is no spell check on the stand-alone app is a deal-breaker for me. 

    Please add this in to the app for a much better experience for the users,

    Just would like to add my interest in this feature.
    Could it be possible to make use of Grammerly's services perhaps?

    I believe we are many, the ones who only use WorkFlowy running on the Mac OS desktop app.

    So having a spellcheck feature would make a huge difference.

    And having Grammarly work inside WF would take it to just another level   :)

    I'm on Windows 10 and I just saw that distinctive red underline chrome gives me for spell check...  in the WorkFlowy desktop app.

    I believe it's arrived, very quietly.

    Thank you WorkFlowy dev team!
