How do have Marked learn a spelling?

When I right-click on a word marked as a spelling error, I have an option to unlearn the spelling, but no option to learn it...the popup menu looks no different for words marked as errors than other words. This occurs when previewing Markdown files of any length, and regardless of the origin of the files (I have checked with standard files and Bear preview).

Not sure if this could be related, but the CMD-; shortcut doesn't work and isn't listed as a shortcut in the Proofing section.

    You need to click on the paragraph to display the popup, then right
    click the word in the list of spelling errors. Because Marked is a web
    view and can't use the standard spell check, it also can't treat its
    manually-highlighted spelling errors the way the system normally would.

    Ah, OK. I was confused by the fact that "unlearn" does appear in that menu. You can tell how often I've used this function.

    Any suggestion on how to get a shortcut key for "show spelling errors?" This doesn't seem to be something I can set with the keyboard prefs because it isn't an option in the "main" menus (or whatever those standard menus are called), but I believe I've seen people talk about having such a shortcut.

    It's actually supposed to have a shortcut key (⌘;) but it seems to
    have been overridden or lost at some point. I'll have to look into that.
