How come we can't spell check in VSTS?

Hi All,

I'd like to be able to spell check inside VSTS fields like "resolution details". When I try spell check current document it does nothing.

The spell checker is an editor extension. It only works within the editor that Visual Studio uses to edit code or other text files (documents basically). Unless a dialog or tool window makes use of that editor such as the expression editor in the Reporting Services report designer, you won't be able to spell check the text in standard text boxes, grids, etc. As far as I know, Visual Studio doesn't expose those items and there is no way to interact with them.
