    Using the WPF RadRichTextBox with the built in spell-checker and am running into issues where possessives are marked as misspelled.

    For example
    • supervisor is marked correct as a singular
    • supervisors is marked correct as a plural
    • supervisor's is marked incorrect
    • supervisors' is marked correct

    My thought on the last item is that the spell checker is seeing the plural and not the plural possessive but I don't understand why the stray apostrophe would be considered okay.

    So I'm confused as to the rules of possessives within the dictionary.

    If anyone can offer clarity and possibly a way to allow possessives I would be most appreciative.

    Many thanks!

    Hi Sandra,

    I tried this scenario in our latest click-once examples and all cases you have listed worked as expected.

    If you are using an older version of the controls, it is possible that the feature had not been implemented yet. Could you check if you can reproduce the issue in the latest version and let us know if you observe the issue there?

    Thank you!
