Disable Spell Check

I'm getting the following Spell check dialog in my text boxes in Power BI that is making it unusable. I need to be able to disable these senseless popups. Does anyone know how to disable these? They appeared mid-day today and I have no clue what happened.

Hi @jasonsnc42 ,

 

When adding a text box to a report, spellcheck automatically analyzes the contents and highlights words not in it's dictionary with the familiar red squiggle. There is no way to dismiss this squiggle, meaning that the highlighting is always present. There is no way to disable spellcheck via options either.

Solution from another question page (by ChrisPBI):

Just go to another page and back anytime the line occurs.

 

It's not ideal, but if you're grabbing screenshots of your reporting, it will remove it temporarily.  I use a compilation of static pics in an image box on file open to highlight or explain new features of my dashboard, and it works for this purpose.

Hi! Not sure if this is helpful, but I found this on another page:

Found a solution: Just go to another page and back anytime the line occurs.

(If you click on the text box again to do edits, the line reappears. But you can just click to another page and back again and it will dissapear) 

I find it rediculous there is no way to disable spell check in Power BI. How is this a problem with such a widely used tool? It is literally preventing me from typing in text boxes.

Agreed it's an absolute joke, as is forced American English, which I'm sick to death of requesting with all Microsoft. Honestly if an AI can write you a paper in the style of the King James Bible it really shouldn't be that hard to develop a sensible spell checker...at least give us a disable On/Off button Microsoft!
