Created attachment 151554 [details] enable spell check for new documents enable spell check by default on document load enable spell check by default on document load There is no UI configuration. To enable spell check on load, by default $ gconftool-2 --type bool --set /apps/gedit-2/plugins/spellcheck/value true

From gnome bugzilla #308324 It would be nice if the Auto-Spellcheck toggle was maintained for newly opened documents. I realize this isn't *always* what the user wants (I could have a README in one tab and source code in another), but it is frequently what the user wants (and especially what a non-expert/non-coding user would want). For my use case, this is a frequent annoyance, as I have to type Alt-T A for every document I open to turn autospellcheck on. It's also frustrating since I unconsciously *assume* spellchecking is turned on for new documents (since I already turned it on) and then incorrectly assume there are no errors in my newly opened (but error-filled) document. In my mind this latter assumption -- presumably shared by many users -- is reason enough to make the "Autospell-Check" option stick for all newly opened documents. If the user did not intend for the new document to be spellchecked, it will be immediately evident what has happened if they open a document and see non-words underlined in red. On the other hand, if a user *did* intend for autospellchecking and opens a new document and spellchecking is turned off, there is no obvious way for the user to discover that spellchecking is not happening. Note, this bug is related to but distint from bug #305055.

Sounds like a reasonable idea. Something like this is probably best tracked upstream, by filing a gedit bug in bugzilla.gnome.org
Comment 4 Ray Strode [halfline] 2007-04-03 14:37:37 UTC
Another point is we already auto-spell check for most programs. The default should be to auto-spell check for gedit, too, if we don't already.

Adding FutureFeature keyword to RFE's.
