Spell checking not working at all #301

I have this installed and I noticed today that spell checking just isn't working at all. I tried to enable it by running the command "Enable Spell Checking For Workspace" from the command palette but that just gives me the error: command 'cSpell.enableForWorkspace' not found.

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the extension, then reloading the vscode window. Same error.

vscode: Version 1.30.2 (1.30.2)
Code Spell Checker: 1.6.10
OS: macOS 10.14.2

If it matters I'm trying to run the command when I have a Markdown file open. Let me know if there's any other details I can provide.

Sorry, looks like this issue is a dupe of #278. I was able to resolve the issue by:

  1. Uninstall the plugin.
  2. Close the workspace.
  3. Quit the application.
  4. Start the application.
  5. Install the plugin.
  6. Reload the application.
  7. Open the workspace, navigate to file, spell checking should now work.
