Explorer | Level 4

I was trying to use Dropbox Paper as my main doc app, but the red lines below each sentence are really anoying. How can I disable it, since I write in Portuguese (br) and it only correct in english. 

My mac is in Pt and my DB account as well.

Hey @caiopimenta, thanks for checking in with us!

You should be able to change the spell checker settings from your browser's and that may reflect on your Paper doc. 

Could you give that a try and let me know how it goes? Thanks!

Hi @Lusil, thanks for the answer!

Sadly, that do not solve my problem. Let me elaborate it.

I am working in this enviroment:

- macOS Mojave 10.14.6 with portuguese (br) spell checker

- Google Chrome Browser with portuguese (br) spell checker

If I use DB Paper on Chrome it work ok, but I do not want to use there, I am using the stand alone mac app. All menu is in portuguese, but the spell checker is not. See img bellow:

Thanks for the screenshot and apologies for the late reply, @caiopimenta

Could you also confirm for me if you're signed in to the same Dropbox account on the website while editing the Paper doc? 

Let me know what you find - thanks again!
