Go to

Delete everything in the editor. Hit "ctrl+b", and hit "a", hit "ctrl+b", and hit "a", hit "ctrl+b", and hit "a". Keep doing this for 10-15secs, and you'll see auto spell check will remove the bold automatically.

Sometimes it'll remove the cursor to the beginning of the word.

I wasn't able to reproduce this.

If possible please provide more details:

  • in which browser does it happen
  • Which sample have you used in demo page
  • could you perhaps provide screen-cast of the issue.

I suspect this might be this issue -

I use Firefox 24.0.

Full featured sample:

I attached a screen shot. In the screen shot, I was alternating between bold and normal. But you can see there are multiple bold letters back to back, and multiple normal letters back to back. It should have looked like this:

@bsener yes you are right - I'm able to reproduce this issue on FF24 only.

  1. Go to replacebycode sample
  2. Clear contents with Ctrl+A Delete/Backspace (press backspace few times to make sure)
  3. Trun on SCAYT
  4. Press Ctrl+b, type 'a', Press Ctrl+b, type 'a' and so on and so on....

Result: You will not see expected result. Below is code that you can see with Firebug. Because commands/buttons state is changed there is more than one element wrapped in 'strong'. Additionally there are many orphan 'strong' elements.

<span data-scayt_word="aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa" data-scaytid="9"><strong>a</strong>a<strong>aa</strong>aa<strong>aa</strong>a<strong>a</strong>aa<strong>aaaa</strong>aa<strong>a</strong></span><strong></strong><strong></strong><strong></strong><br>

Problem can be reproduced in Firefox 24, from CKEditor 3.0 in both CKE 3.x and 4.x.
Because this is happening from CKE 3.0 I assume this is some SCAYT change causing this.

Is anyone looking into this?

Hello. Thank you for the reported issue. Currently we're looking for the solution. The behavior will be fixed in the upcoming release. The CKEditor's markup won't be affected by SCAYT for the described steps.
