    Spell check - Where the right mouse equivalent?

    I've had my TF700T for over a year, and I still have one basic problem with spell check that I cannot resolve. The tablet nicely underlines miss spelled words, however I cannot seem to bring up the suggestions list to pick from. On a regular laptop its the right mouse click that would bring up the suggested words--but on the infinity tablet what is it? Typically, I use the Asus mobile dock with the tablet but right mouse click doesn't seem to work. Without the mobile dock I'm still at a loss. Does anyone have the magic that unlocks the suggestions for misspelled words? Thank you.

    I just tried it, and if you "tap and hold" the misspelled word, it will pop up "Replace", then you tap replace and a list of suggested correct words popup. Just tape the one you need.

    Welcome to the forum

    I think you'll find that the advice that Bob11 offers above should work for you.

    Essentially, though as a general rule, things like this are either app specific or follow the general principle that "short tap = left mouse click"; "long press = right mouse click"

    All the best

    Interesting. That is not what is happening on my machine. When I do a long tap a menu appears at the top of the screen with "Done" "Text Selection" "copy", "cut" etc. The text has two blue markers below the ends. Still no joy. Any other clues?

    Wow. Tried your suggestion without the mobile dock and it worked. So half the problem solved. Any ideas what i should do while using the mobile dock (keyboard and extended battery). My standard working method is with the mobile dock. Any one else have this problem. Thanks

    AFullDeck, I'm going to move this thread to 700 Accessories, where it now belongs, and will delete your other thread, which is there now, to avoid double posting. Your post in the deleted thread is quoted below:
    Spell check with Mobile dock on Infinity
    In a thread else where in the forum I just realized my spell check problem is related to my dock. Spell check - Where the right mouse equivalent?
    Any ideas why the dock over rides the spell check functions? Is there a way to get this to work with the dock?

    If you are using your docked keyboard, just move the mouse pointer over the misspelled word, then quickly tap in the center of your mousepad, and the list of suggested words will popup. if you are like me, you probably will have disabled your mousepad by pressing the key just above the number 3 key. So, you will need to re-enable the mousepad before my suggestion will work.

    @bobb11 your suggestion does work for this forum using tapatalk. But it doesn't seem to work when I am in other forums using chrome or Firefox browsers. Is this browser specific? Is there some manual that describes what is happening?
