Hi Marta! Nice to get a reply so soon after joining...

Actually, I use QEdit as my main editor for almost anything. When I need an
all-out word processor, I'll fire up DeScribe 5.0, which DOES have
multilingual spelling and grammar checkers, and I *think* does on-the-fly
autocorrect (haven't dug seeply enough into yet to be sure though).

Hmm, but what does it do for a sentence like, say, "When she worked in the
secretarial field, she filed a lot of documents," or "The farmer filed his
nails out in the field."? =)
