Put an item on your cursor, then cast Identify. You will get information about that item. You can also cast it on someone else if they are holding an item on their cursor.

Where????? I have cast the spell with an item on my cursor. No window or anything popped up. No text in any text box. I tried putting the item in a slot and right clicking on it after I had held it and cast the spell: nothing happened then either. I can't seem to get this spell to work.

Assuming it's not broken (shouldn't be), you probably have either a filter turned off (Alt+O - Filters tab) or chat directed to a trash window (Right-click on a Chat window and under filter, check Other, as I believe that's the one it's under).

After testing it out in-game, it works. Make sure you have yourself targetted first. Here's an example from my lo file:

[Mon Oct 08 01:47:15 2012] You have finished memorizing Identify.
[Mon Oct 08 01:47:41 2012] You must first select a target for this spell!
[Mon Oct 08 01:48:00 2012] You begin casting Identify.
[Mon Oct 08 01:48:05 2012] Item Lore: For the use of anyone willing to take up arms.

EDIT: Just to be clear, you have memmed the spell in your spell book, then put it into the spell gem bar, selected an item besides the spell scroll (which you shouldn't have any more after memming it) on your cursor and casted the correct spell gem?

Because it caught me out in one of my dumb moments I thought I'd share. The spell works on a target just like every other spell, so you need to target yourself in order for it to "see" the item on your cursor (and another PC to see what's on their cursor). Obvious really but somehow my brain was assuming because it was targetting an item of mine not a mob it didn't need that step, it possible the OP had this same issue all those years ago.
