    Is anyone else having problems with spell check not working in Beta 5? Misspelt words will underline red but tapping on them does not give options to correct. I have 'predictive' toggled off in Keyboard settings but everything else 'on'. I have also tried a reset all settings to no avail. I haven't seen mention of it as a bug, so not sure if it's just me.

    I'm having the same problem with the 10.0.1 GM. I get the red underline but no "bubble" with the suggestions.

    Seems to be in all apps (tested in Hangouts, Mail and Notes).

    Interesting...in an odd way. I take it this is with the stock Apple iOS keyboard? Have you tried disabling and re-enabling various keyboard options related to it all (for auto-correct and spelling)? Restarting? Might potentially come down to resetting settings (if not reinstalling) of none of those things work.

    Ah! I think I've found the crux of the issue now.

    With the Apple on-screen keyboard, the spellcheck suggestions now appear in the "prediction bar" instead of as a separate bubble. However, I've been using a Bluetooth keyboard so that bar doesn't appear.

    I'll go through the settings, because surely I'm not the only person using Bluetooth!

    Edit: None of the settings appear to have any effect with this issue. If someone else has this working then I'd appreciate knowing how yours are set. And yes, I've restarted :)
