When using the "Check Spelling" feature, spell checker checks all the mistakes pretty quickly, however it has serious problems with applying changes that users is trying to make.

Steps to reproduce

  • Load the attached document in source mode
  • Switch to wysiwyg mode
  • Click on a "Check Spelling" button
  • After the dialog is loaded, scroll down to the bottom of the article (inside of the dialog)
  • Find "14th" (which is highlighted), click on it, select "Utah" from Suggestions
  • Click "Change to"
  • Result: after waiting for over a minute, the word is still not changed

Seems to be a server-side problem, not a browser or OS specific bug. We will look into it.

It seems that in Safari under Mac "transcription" with special characters is broken, while under Windows everything is OK. CKSource, you might look into this issue.

Because of this incorrect "transcription" WSC treats this word as three separate words (under Mac) while under Windows it's only one misspelled word.

Could you try to open London's page at Wikipedia, then open it's source, copy all code from source page and paste it into CKEditor, and then try to reproduce the problem?
