Hi Amey, this is your browser, and is the spellcheck working. For example, when I type your name in this response, it has the red squiggle as it is identifying a word that is not recognised in my browser dictionary. I can add your name to my dictionary and the red squiggle will be removed. This is normal behaviour for text input and is browser behaviour and so cannot be changed via Storyline.

Hi Amey,

I'm sorry you're running into this issue, but I appreciate the excellent video of what you're experiencing. We do have a bug reported where:

The red line for the spelling error in a text-entry box on the base layer is showing on the slide layer.

This discussion here covers the same bug you're running into and may provide some insight on how to work around it. I'm sorry this is slowing you down, but we'll be sure to update you when a fix is in place!

The item you'll be interested in is:
Fixed: Scroll bars and red spell-check lines on one layer were visible on other layers when they should've been hidden.

Just launch the Articulate 360 desktop app on your computer and click the Update button for Storyline 360. Details here.
