I realised that when some of my colleague edits a SharePoint page, everything is marked as incorrect - it looks all "red" and they get a little Microsoft Editor layer, when they hover over it. It appears like SharePoint online is running an internal spell check based on Microsoft Editor automatically. Can someoe tell where to enable/disable a built-in spell check on sharepoint pages?

 

Has anyone encountered this or has an idea on this topic? Thanks
