The spell check wasn't working in CS5, and I figured upgrading to CS6 would do it. Same problem: Purposely misspelled words earn a green checkmark. The spellcheck catches nothing, regardless of what language is assigned to the text. I've seen other posts about assigning a language (done) and trashing preferences (don't want to do that and rebuild them all).
Is the a specific dictionary I can trash? A specific preference?
I've been living without a spellcheck for over a year now. But it's been a year of living dangerously.
