Enabling Auto Spelling Correction in Snow Leopard

In Snow Leopard, the automatic spelling correction in applications is not usually activated by default. To turn it on, make sure the cursor's insertion point is somewhere where text can be entered, and either choose Edit > Spelling and Grammar > Correct Spelling Automatically or, if the Edit menu's submenu doesn't have what you need, Control-click where you're typing and choose Spelling and Grammar > Correct Spelling Automatically from the contextual menu that appears. The latter approach is particularly likely to be necessary in Safari and other WebKit-based applications, like Mailplane.

DocHaven 4.2

Send Article to a Friend

Some time has elapsed since our last check-in with Holy Mackerel Software's cross-platform document management software DocHaven, but the program is still going strong, having recently received a significant update. Version 4.2 lets users compress files into zip archives, add User or Client photos, and provide distinct item descriptions for each Group, and extends support for Ubuntu 9. Also, each Group now has a designated Administrator, a View option has been added to the Find menu, and the Transfer window now displays the estimated time remaining on the current transfer. The latest version requires you are running Mac OS X 10.5 or later. Full release notes are available on the Holy Mackerel Software Web site. ($40 per user new, free update, 18.3 MB)
