Please do something about the spell checker in Photoshop CC 2015. Its been an issue since CC and there are multiple discussions in the community. Why no help with this?

Hi Blaine,

Could you tell us about the problem that you're having?  The only current issue for the spell-checker that I'm aware of is that there's a problem with characters in a certain Unicode range.  Otherwise, this is news to us and all the other threads with spell-check issues turned out to be user error.

Thanks,
David

In Photoshop CC 2015, you can no longer highlight text and right click (or control click) to spell check. Worked fine in older versions of PS. This seems to be a bug in Photoshop CC 2015 that’s at least 3-4 months old.

Howdy Steven,

We've actually been working on providing this fix for our users in the next release.  Look for it soon as well as other enhancements to the spell checker.

Thanks,
David

Thanks for that. All I got from support was something about nobody else having the issue.

I'm seeing this on both computers I use.

This was fixed in the latest release of Photoshop, 15.1, for both Mac and Windows.

Thanks,
