Hello,

 

           If you're talking about the "automatic squiggly line under misspelled words" when you're composing e-mail in Gmail's web interface, that's actually not done by Gmail but by your web browser's spell checking feature.

 

           I'd do a web search on "spell check [insert correct browser name here]" to determine how that is turned on for the browser(s) you use with Gmail.

No, other than trying a browser other than IE11.

 

It's working fine for me in IE11, Firefox, Chrome, and MS-Edge.   That or do a web search on "IE11 spell check not working" and try some of the things that turn up to try to correct the issue in IE11.

Hello,

I'm interested in importing my custom dictionary from Word/Outlook into Gmail so that I can automate spell check against that dictionary.  Any thoughts as to how to do that?  

Thanks!
