I simply can't use favourite instead of favorite, or behaviour instead of behavior. When I try the British spelling all auto-correct features point them out as incorrect, anyway lol

 

 

Sounds like you need to use the English (UK) dictionary. It's annoying how the US dictionary is often the default though!

All of the above and more. Even with the spell checker (just caught 'speel') I can't get it right. And it keeps getting worse. As a professional writer, this is something I used to take pride in. Old age sucks.
