I am using plugin DSpellCheck in Notepad++

When editing an XML file I noticed that the spell checker does not check inside the "CDATA", like this:

<![CDATA[My testt]]>

What causes this is the exclamation mark (!)

Other example not work:




The spell checker does not work inside "comment tag", but this work fine:




These are the delimiters in configs:

,.!?":;{}()[]\/=+-^$*<>|#$@%&~…№—«»–•©›“”· `→×

How to configure DSpellCheck/Hunspell to work?

    It's possible this is intentional. CDATA is meant to be "This is seriously explicitly what I want to send, no matter what single quotes, double quotes, null characters or other chaff are present in here it REALLY SERIOUSLY is what I want to send". Otherwise it's an issue with the RegEx used to locate things to spellcheck. – MrDoom Sep 21 '14 at 4:21

    @MrDoom No matter what it is. It is a text and a text should be spellchecked specially Comments, when others wanna read it ... – UltraDEVV Sep 23 '14 at 12:59

First: You forget to add -- at the end of > . LIKE THIS <!-- dfsdf -->.
Also it works on my computer with no problem. What Ive found is that:

  • You maybe have some problem in "Filetypes" of DSpellCheck settings, check it. It should be *.*
  • Also when I unchecked the Check only Comments and Strings If Possible text inside CDATA went into what you want.

I post some pics:

When it was checked:


When I unckecked it:
