Ticket #6119 (confirmed Bug)
Web Spell Checker - "finish checking" takes ages to finish
|Reported by:||wwalc||Owned by:|
|Component:||UI : Spell Checker||Version:|
When having a larger document, the SpellChecker dialog becomes useless. I have tried editing the following document in CKEditor:
and after opening the "SpellChecker" dialog (with the "Check Spelling" button), after I clicked "Finish Checking" button inside of the dialog, it didn't close in a reasonable amount of time (it took almost 9 minutes, I have pretty fast internet connection). I have tested it in IE8.
To reproduce load the attached HTML source and use WSC.
I have no idea how spell checker works, but it looks like the problem is that the data is sent in a really small chunks, thus checking the whole document requires hundreds of HTTP requests.
There is one more thing that I do not understand here: I have pressed the "Check Spelling" button, I did not change anything in the dialog and just pressed the "Finish Checking" button. Why is it taking so long if I did not change the document at all?
If it really has to take a lot of time, we could at least display an estimated time required to finish processing, because it is definitely not obvious that this operation may take so long.
