Is it possible to add a spell checker to SourceTree?

Does SourceTree have a spell checker for your commit messages? If so how do you turn it on?

This was just added in SourceTree 1.4.

Awesome! I just updated and got 1.4 and the spell checker works!! Thanks

Hey Dan,

If using Mac, it can spell check using Mac's built-in spell checker which hooks into native controls. Mine's currently doing it as can be seen here:

so you can see that the text is underlined red, and upon context-clicking it'll offer options to spell check.

You can enable this option by context-clicking in a text input and using the "Spelling and Grammar" option as shown here:

If you're using Windows I can take a look later and get back to you, I don't have my Windows install available to me right now.


In SourceTree you can activate Spell Check in Tools > Options, in General Tab:



Thank you for responding, but I'm using Windows.
