Better spell checking

Writing in another language than English triggers spelling check – meaning all text is underlined with red. This makes it very disturbing to work on texts. Would suggest an option to turn this off.

for who wants to disable spellchecking, this hack can help
press ctrl + shift + i or view > toggle developer tools, open the console and paste
```
setInterval(() => {
const [, editor] = document.querySelectorAll('.ql-editor')
if (editor.spellcheck) {
editor
.querySelectorAll('*')
.forEach(element => element.spellcheck = false)
editor.spellcheck = false
}
}, 1000)
```
it disables checking until the app is closed

I dont know if thats intentional, missing, caused by something on my end or not- spell checking is on in mem desktop(windows) and i cant find how to turn it off... and english not being my main language makes mem unusable for me this way

I came back to mem after being away since the first beta and just installed the desktop app (windows). Problem is english is not my main language- and every mem i open or write becomes underlined in red wich is extremely distracting for me, even just a few what to say of entire phrases and paragraphs.

I double check my windows typing settings and spellchecking, turned off so it isnt on windows end. On the app i can right click individual words and choose changes or add to dictionary, but i wont be adding my entire language. No option to just turn it off that i could find.

Even when im writing a document i want spell checking, i leave it off- and i only ever turn it on before finishing for review.

How can i turn spell checking on/off?

Mem should have a global setting to toggle it.

PS: mem becomes unusable for me this way.
