How to turn off spelling checker in desktop app? Edited

I write in multiple languages and have almost constantly red lines under everything I write. It is extremely annoying.

I cannot even find a place to change the language of the spelling checker.

So how do I turn off spelling checker in the desktop app?

I am on macOS.

Hi Nicolai,

I don't think we the ability to turn off spell checker, but I'm looking into it and will let you know what I find out! 

Ok thank you.

Stride seems pretty useless for anybody who writes in multiple languages or have their OS set to a different language than what they communicate over in Stride.

In my corner of the world (Europe) I would guess that covers most of potential Stride users.
