When I am on outlook or teams or gmail or any other typing function the spell check on the tablet does not work... Is there anyway to engage the spell check when the keyboard is attached? Seems very odd that I cannot find a way to turn it on or get the spellcheck working... Please help.

With external keyboard attached the spell check doesn't work since it's enabled through Samsung keyboard. Alternatively you can get a third party spell check tool and that should work

I don't have that tablet, but I assume you looked in keyboard settings?

Android does not have autocorrect compatibility with external keyboards but some of the keyboard replacements do.  I use Swiftkey.  Follow the setup instructions in the link below and you will have a menu bar and spelling suggestions along the bottom of the screen. Works very well.

That's just dumb. When they pitch it as a computer that doesn't really work

Any update on this?   This is a HUGE oversight, especially when they are trying to tout this as a hybrid laptop replacement.
