//Additional: uninstalled app.
rm -rf ~/Library/Preferences/com.brettterpstra.marked2.plist
confirmed removal of the file.
Reinstalled app from App Store
loaded Marked2
noted that all my preferences were the same and the ~/Library/Preferences/com.brettterpstra.marked2.plist was not present.
retested the spelling/grammar with out success.

    Hi Matthew,

    Have you enabled the spellcheck on the current document?
