Description Thorsten Sick 2009-07-02 16:56:17 UTC
When adding doxygen/gtk-doc comment blocks a spell checker would help a lot to reduce mistakes. Maybe it would be wise to automatically add symbols (functions, enums, ...) to the spell checker's database. They will be spell-checked as well this way.

Thanks a lot !

This depends on bug #472660 to be able to find out that this is a comment.
Comment 2 André Klapper 2020-11-07 12:12:58 UTC is being replaced by We are closing all
old feature requests in Bugzilla which have not seen updates for many years.

If you are still requesting this feature in a currently supported version of GNOME (currently that would be 3.38), then please feel free to report it at

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry it could not be implemented.
