Spellchecking when adding new test steps

Friday, September 9, 2016
SpiraTeam Support Members,

It appears that spellchecking is not working when adding or editing test steps in a test case. The browser spellchecker notifies the user if a misspelled word appears in the Description field of the test case, but no spell checking occurs in the Description, Expected Result, and Sample Data columns of a test step.
Since most of the information for a test case appears in these columns, I would think spellchecking would be available for these fields. The issue appears in Chrome, IE, and Firefox.

Thank you for time!

Hi Kenneth

Thanks for letting us know. I have confirmed that it is a bug that has been fixed in v5.1 that will be released in 1-2 months.
