    It's possible this should go under the RadSpell control, but...

    In IE11, if the next wrong word doesn't have any suggestions, the spell check doesn't open the commands window (the one with Ignore/Ignore All/Change Manually/etc), and the spell check can't continue.  This happens in both iframe and div modes.  No errors are thrown.

    Also, in IE11, when the RadEditor is set to ContentAreaMode="Div" and contained inside an iframe, clicking on the spell check commands window for the first misspelled word results in the following JavaScript error:

    Object doesn't support property or method 'createTextRange'.

    Screenshot attached.

    Hello Ned,

    The described issues are bugs and I logged them into our database for fixing.

    As per to the reported issues you can follow these feedback portal items for further updates and workarounds on the matters:

    As reward and appreciation for reporting these issues, I am updating your Telerik points.

    For the time being you can resolve them both by adding a meta tag to force the IE10 compatibility mode of the IE browser:

    <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=10" />



    Check out the Telerik Platform - the only platform that combines a rich set of UI tools with powerful cloud services to develop web, hybrid and native mobile apps.

    Was this issue fixed in any of the current releases. We are encountering this issue after migrating to IE11. Putting in the <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=10" /> tag is not helping. We still get the same error.

    Both issues have been resolved with the release of the Q1 2015 version.
