Rich Text Editor Spell check options do not come up in the list



Rich Text Editor Spell check options do not come up in the list in alphabetical order as shown below.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

Configure a Rich Text Editor with spell checking option under the Toolbar options under the General properties configuration of the Rich Text Editor.

Root Cause

This is not an issue but works correctly as expected behaviour.


Here’s the explanation for the reported behavior: 

To suggest a correction, the spellchecker searches its dictionary for strings similar to the misspelling.

It then orders the potential corrections by their similarity and likelihood score. 

The known string nearest to your misspelling is the suggested correction. 

It does not display in the alphabetical order, it displays in the order that is more near to the word typed in.
