I think it should be for events (all fields) and for tasks (all fields) and it should be possible to have more then one dictionary and select the one your default in the option menu.

Or to say it in other words, it should work the same way Thunderbird handel messages, just for events and tasks.

It would be nice to spell check tasks too...

Hmm should we really enable this without providing a way to disable the spellchecker, and also without providing a way to change the language?
Comment 7 User image Przemyslaw Bialik 2009-02-22 11:02:56 PST
hmm it can be disabled but this change would not be remembered...
Good points, maybe it would be possible to reuse TB toolbar spell check button ? and we should probably follow TB setting in options to enable / disable spell checking by default.
