    I have pretty severe dyslexia and because of that spelling is very hard for me. This has made me be very self-conscious about what I write. Currently, whenever I'm working with game maker, I have to write all my comments within Word or Google Docs and copy them back into Game Maker. That workflow is very tedious and as a result, I don’t comment my code as much as I probably should. In contrast, when I’m working in Eclipse I write much better comments because it has a very simple spell checker.

    I know I’m not the only person that has a problem with spelling. For example, people with English as a second language or younger programmers would greatly benefit from a spell checker. So I think it would be awesome if YoYo were to implement their own within the script editor.

    Have to say, I do this a lot as well. Not because I'm dyslexic, just a terrible -TERRIBLE speller. However, I also know that for both these cases, google is by far better that we could ever do. Sometimes my spelling is so wrong, nothing recognises it except google. I suspect you're doing it the best way possible just now anyway. We just couldn't dedicate the time/effort to get it good enough to beat the likes of google, all we could do is minor typeos. Sorry.
