Thanks. Took a few tries

- Propose (preferences) a comfortable "spellcheck display mode ", separating the text and the list (like the one in the screenshot below).
Since you can move the spellcheck window wherever you want, and it'll remember its location, this should already be addressed. Locking it to Sigil would restrict it/make it too small.

Quote:
- The user should have (preferences) a choice of seeing the list
- either your way: with UPPER characters first and then lower ones
- or in strict alphabetical order.
Yes, something I wanted to add, if someone mentioned it - thanks for the reminder.

Quote:
- To say it precisely, the words on the list are either unknown and/or mispelled. A vast majority of them are even perfectly correct. They are just "un-hunspelled", if I may. This should be corrected.
Could go either way on this.

Quote:
- The spellcheck window is to be translated.
There wasn't much time between beta and release - I'm sure they'll catch up - if we don't change the wording again

Quote:
- I would propose to add the number of lines included in the list (as a bottom line info?).
Try the tooltip on the header.

Quote:
- Some few words are truncated by code (dropcap, sup, span, i or b tags) and just appear on the list for this reason. It's not a real problem but maybe it would be good to make hunspell ignore all this kind of code and plug the letters on both sides if there is no white space of any kind in between.
There's no way to tell if its a word split by a tag or separate words, so it'll stay as is. But if you see a specific case where a word is being found incorrectly, let use know.

Quote:
A question to finish:
when you have a list of elided forms, which precise command do you use to make hunspell analyse it? If I use the plain
Code:
-l
argument, it declares all of them to be unknown...
Sigil simply converts any curly apostrophes to straight apostrophes in a word before looking in hunspell for a match or suggestion.
