Is there anyway to have an integrated spell checker in Archi (as you type) for those of use with bad skills :)

I know I can export the model run spellchecker and re-import etc, but these feel clumsy

ideas .. on best work flow of extensions

Well, there's no support for spell checking built-in to Archi, nor is this something that I think could be simply integrated. It's really not something I want to implement myself, although as it's all open source someone could take a look at it.

Hi,

As Phil's said, there's nothing we can do in Archi itsefl.

But there are some software out there which might help. Here is one of them for Windows: http://www.tinyspell.com/

I had the idea about doing a spell check jArchi script that would have to be run on-demand, but never got far on it. It would have gone through the description text and reported any suspicious spellings in the output.

That's a good idea.

In fact, when speaking about spell checking, I always thought about a "check as you type" and completely forgot that it could be done in an asynchronous way.

https://www.javascriptspellcheck.com/ could be used through jArchi (but interacting with the script would involve building a complex UI), but it should be possible to code one in pure Java and offer it as a plugin too.
