One feature I was quite excited about was one of the less talked about ones - the built-in grammar checker. This is really cool for all my essays I do! :P

But, it's not enabled by default. So I have to go through all my apps and enable it one by one - which is ridiculous.

Is there a way to enable it system-wide? Is there a preference (I haven't found one), or even a terminal command?

    I think the reason it's not enabled by default everywhere is because computerized grammar checkers are imperfect and tend to make spurious complaints.

    Also, having to manually enable grammar checking in the apps where you need it isn't "ridiculous". Most people would enable it in their word processor, possibly in their email client, and that's about it. That's only two apps.
