Auto Correct Spelling

Would like Shotcut to have an auto correct spelling feature when adding text in a filter.


I like the idea, but only if it’s possible to use existing dictionaries already in use by various software, like with Libre Office, etc. Maybe this is not even possible, just an idea. Even if I had to manually insert the auto correct/dictionary files I would be fine with it.

Our core UI toolkit is Qt. Qt does not have a built-in spell checker. There are various open source spell checking libraries that we could incorporate. But it is more effort and overhead to add a new library for Shotcut to depend on. I do not see it as a high priority at this time. But in the future, I hope that we are able to add more featured/capable rich text editing tools and then that might be a good time.
