Spellchecker and language selection not working in OneNote for Windows devices

Last updated: October 2016


When using the OneNote app on your Windows 10 device including Windows tablet and phone, you may find that the spellchecker or automatic language selection is not working correctly when you change your keyboard layout to another language other than English.

Status: Workaround

We are aware of this issue and are working on a fix. In the meantime, we recommend that after launching OneNote, you switch the input language to English first, and then switch back to your desired language.
