Please add a spell checker

Non-native speakers of any language are prone to errors in spelling. While collaborating across countries, this is especially more evident.
A simple spell checker would help greatly.

  • Could be turned off per file
  • A plus would be team specific dictionary to apply overrides

Alternatively, it could help using browser tools like spell checker!

Yes PLEASE!

Spellcheck is definitely needed! It’s really embarrassing to collaborate with your team in realtime and have a bunch of spelling errors. I’ve been opening a separate Google window to double check certain words to make sure they’re correct.

Yes please!

Using the browser’s spellchecker would be fantastic. I would be OK with a short-term solution of enabling figma (spell checking) plugins on the figjam board.

It would be great to be able to access the OS-level spellcheck feature available to most text-based apps. I.e., highlight a word, right click and Define word or replace word with correctly spelled version.

Yes, I would love to see spellcheck. Also just feels like it should be table stakes for a tool like this. Was really surprised it was not there.

This is so needed! Please prioritize it. My company blocks widgets so we cannot use any external tools. Thanks.

I really can’t understand why it’s taking this much time to add a simple spell checker to Figma / FigJam. This is a much-needed feature. Today I had to switch to Miro due to this problem. But I don’t have an alternative for Figma. Please fix this asap. Really appreciate it.

We are not asking too much just a simple spell checker :pray:. I really don’t like to rely on third-party plugins since some of them stop working properly and required some commitment from the developer to always keep track of updates.

My dudes, come on. The last update fixed 20 things that weren’t actually broken and you still don’t have a spellcheck. For realsies, let’s get this one done.

I’m able to use the SPELLL plugin in FigJam, though having it built-in would be ideal.
