I've looked everywhere I can think of, but haven't been able to find out exactly what spelling and grammar checking the in-app purchase for Marked2 provides. What grammatical errors does it check, and which dictionaries does it use? Can I choose British English instead of US, and add my own words etc.? Is the spelling check just a simple dictionary look-up or does it do something more sophisticated using context, like Grammarly claims to? (Not that I demand such features, I just want to know what's there.)

    It uses the system dictionary for spelling and grammar. It will use
    whatever dictionary is installed, and can detect language on a
    per-paragraph basis, defaulting to the system language.

    The reason it's an in-app purchase is by default a web view can't be
    spell-checked. It took a massive amount of effort to bring the default
    macOS capabilities to the Marked preview, so I've attempted to recoup
    some of the time. There's a possibility I make it a built-in feature in
    the future, mostly due to complications with the Paddle version of
    in-app purchases (which, by the way, are currently not working, so if
    you're interested in purchasing, wait until after the next update).

    Thanks for the information. No need to justify charging for any in-app purchase: Marked2 is an excellent program and deserves support.
