Remove Red Wave spelling check in formula?

Anyone knows how to disable the red waves spelling error indicator on chrome (using a mac)

Hi Marc,

Those aren’t spelling errors, they’re syntax errors in your formula.

What you mean syntax errors, if you hit space it removes the red waves. Not sure about being syntax error.

The formula editor can be a bit pesky/moody when it comes to “long” formula (I’m on mac too) and there’s something it doesn’t like (an error somewhere) in the formula :no_mouth: .

Sometimes, with complex formulas, I don’t even get the syntax error underline… but when I save my formula, it unexpectedly doesn’t work and I have to go back to the formula to finally see the whole thing completely underlined :woman_shrugging:

(I can’t reproduce that behaviour consistently and it can happen in buttons as well as in any live formulas, as soon as they get a bit complicated)

When the formula editor seems to get annoyed, I tend to “reboot” it by saving the formula I’m currently writing in its actual state and re-open it :no_mouth: … It generally seems to help to get a better and more informative error message from the formula editor…
(Quite often, the formula editor didn’t detect that a bracket was missing or there was one too many in the formula before I closed it)

As for this:

It might simply be because the formula editor is waiting for you to correct the formula :woman_shrugging:
I mean, it could be waiting for you to stop typing before searching for errors again …

Got it, yeah most of the time I get those lines even if the formula is fine. It’s good to know it was something that can be tweaked with CSS and stylus.
