### Spell check does not work with \cite{}

Hi,

I use Texmaker and would like to have my text spell checked.
If I enter the following text, the mistake is correctly recognized:

This sentence contains a misstake

Even when continuing with a citation, Texmaker still recognizes it:

This sentence contains a misstake \cite{bib

But upon closing the citation bracket, the red underlining disappears!?

This sentence contains a misstake \cite{bib}

I don't have this problem with \ref, \citep or any other command.
The \cite command disturbs the whole paragraph before, not just one sentence, and not the part after it.
The paragraph before is fine, if it does not contain a \cite...

This is really dangerous, since mistakes are not recognized.

Hope you can help me,
I would like to have my thesis checked

Cheers,
Clemens
