Bug 12761

Summary: REGRESSION: Misspelled words cannot be corrected using context menu
Product: WebKit Reporter: geoff kruse <gkruse>

Status: RESOLVED WONTFIX

Description geoff kruse 2007-02-13 08:27:37 PST
In the latest nightly, misspelled words are underlined correctly but right clicking on the word does not bring up the list of suggestions.

Steps to reproduce:

1) In the Comments Text Area in Bugzilla type "this is badd"
2) Right click on "badd"

In the current version of Safari you get a long list of suggestions for how to spell badd correctly.  In the current version of webkit you do not.  This could possibly be related to http://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=11040 but I see it on any editable text area, not just gmail.  Entering new bug as advised by mitzpettel on #webkit

Spelling guesses are not the only items missing from the context menu. Cut and Paste are also missing, for example.
Comment 2 Darin Adler 2007-02-16 08:08:48 PST
This might be because of mismatch between Safari version and WebKit version.
Comment 3 John Sullivan 2007-02-16 08:43:53 PST
Yes, this is fallout from changes to make context menus compatible with other clients. Tiger Safari running on TOT WebKit will never show the editing-related context menu items.

We do not intend to fix this explicitly, but the problem will go away when a newer Safari is released.

I should add this to the known incompatibilities wiki page at <http://trac.webkit.org/projects/webkit/wiki/Known%20incompatibilities%20between%20open-source%20WebKit%20and%20Safari>. Currently I can't figure out how to log into that wiki in order to edit it though.

I added a blurb.

I think the wiki is yet another separate username/password combination.  You may have to register to make changes.
