digitalmars.D.learn - Comment highlighting in Descent plugin

Why is every word in every comment underlined with a red squiggle?
I see there's something called the "D spell checker" enabled.  Is it broken?
Disabling spell-checking makes the problem go away (but only after I
re-saved the file, which was rather unexpected... why should I have to
save the file for source code display styles to take effect?)

If every word in the file (including keywords, var names, etc.) are being highlighted, you need to go to Window > Preferences > General > Editors > Text Editors > Spelling and change "Default Spelling Engine" to "D Spelling Engine". This will make it only highlight spelling errors in comments & strings. If you got that part right, but every word is still being highlighted, it's likely because you are using non-English comments. In that case, you need to get a dictionary for whatever language you're using. Go to the same place (Window > Preferences > General > Editors > Text Editors
 Spelling) and under User-defined dictionary, add a word list for your 

word lists like this all over the place for many different languages). If you have all that right & are using English comments, I'm not sure what the problem is (maybe an Eclipse version incompatibility... what version are you using?). As for why you have to save it, you need to get Eclipse to re-check the file. Generally, Eclipse does this either as you type, on a rebuild, or when you save, but to save a couple processor cycles it doesn't do this all the time.

Yeh I have all that right. My Windows default system encoding is set to Japanese, though. Maybe that makes a difference? The words its flagging are all English words.
 what version are
 you using?).

Just downloaded both Eclipse and descent today. eclipse-cpp-ganymede-SR1-win32 is the name of the zip file.

I don't really care that much about spellcheck in comments, so I'll just turn it off for now. --bb
