Spellcheck should include text in linked pictures from other sheets
My clients produce master spreadsheets containing sections of text as linked pictures from other sheets in the same files. After processing the master spreadsheet, I do a spellcheck, which tells me "Spellcheck complete. You're good to go." But I'm not really, because spellcheck doesn't look at those linked pictures. I only just discovered this. Now I have to spellcheck each sheet separately. Either make spellcheck work properly, or at least provide a warning of what hasn't been checked.
Thanks for the feedback. We’ll consider this in our planning for a future release. Please continue to vote on this feature idea.

The spelling is my own. It's pretty good, but I need it to be perfect. My clients write in Japanese and I translate it. But I have to keep their formatting, including linked pictures.
If it's too difficult for MS programmers to spellcheck back through the links, they should at least put a warning in the spellchecker. E.g., "Not all content on this sheet could be checked. Please check linked cells manually." "You're good to go" is a bit irresponsible in my opinion.

So basically the linked picture should know which cells it is capturing so then it can spell check on those cells too.
