Does anyone know why fields with spelling errors are not checked by the spell checker in Writer? For example change the "User Name" to something blatantly incorrect and insert the "Author" field into a document. Do the same with a "Document Title".

Some combination of (1) proper names - even document titles - are frequently not dictionary words and (2) users are likely to have taken particular care over entering the data for such fields and not need the assistance of a spelling checker?

In the same way, most mail clients don't check the spelling of the To: header of a message, even the "real name" part. And many - even one well-known one - do not check the Subject: header. The spelling checker I use with my mail client accepts "Dave" but won't countenance "Barton".

I trust this helps.
