Description

Edge has a spell checker turned on by default.  It marks incorrect words and suggests replacement words.  When a replacement word is selected it is inserted at the beginning of the input box.

How to replicate

Do data entry in WebDirect and miss-spell a word.  Right click on the word, choose a suggestion.

Workaround (if any)

None known.


Note - Chrome simply underlines the miss-spelled word but doesn't suggest a solution.  Spell checking in Chome is also off by default (last time I checked) so it is not an issue there.  The users for this particular solution really want spell checking which is why they are using Edge.
