Be sure to see the HTML editor page for more information.

I can't find the option to do......

Click the icon at the far right of the bottom row (two boxes with an arrow). It will say "Enlarge Editor" when you hover over it. The editor will now appear in a pop-up with the full range of options available (e.g. tables).

The HTML Editor does not appear

Check the following points and/or discussions (in no particular order);

How can I enable a spell-check?

If you want the HTML editor to have a spell-check button, you need to install aspell 0.50 or later on your server, and enter the correct path to access the aspell binary in Administration > Server > System paths.

How we can disable the spell check button for specific instances in a quiz?

The spell check is very handy for most circumstances but a quiz where you are looking at spelling and punctuation in student responses kind of defeats the purpose of the question. You can use the theme CSS files to disable the button on a specific question type. Try:

 .essay div[title='Spell-check'] {
 display:none;
 }

The spell check button should be displayed everywhere except on the essay question type response box.

What is new with the HTML editor in Moodle 2.0?
