Is there an integrated spell checker?
Yes, Overleaf provides a free multi-language spell check facility for all users.
To change the language used by the spell checker, go to your profile settings menu and select your desired language. In the editor any incorrectly spelled words will be highlighted with a red underline:
You can right click on any highlighted word to display a list of spelling suggestions. Note that the spell check highlights are only displayed in the editor pane (the left hand window), not in the compiled pdf.
