Errors hiding other errors


(Ruud Baars) #1

The ‘sentence too long’ can hide a spelling error, which I consider of higher priority. Can this be altered, or could the interface show multiple errors?


(Daniel Naber) #2

I have just done that (here), but not tested it yet.

But when checking the sentence length rule with Dutch on languagetool.org, I see it complains about sentences longer than 12 words. Is that on purpose? It seems rather short.


(Ruud Baars) #3

It is. But as far as I know, I did not set the limit.

The rules I once had were one with a limit of 15, fir easy language, and one with 40. I guess 30 will be an acceptable number. Maybe keep it the same as in German?
