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.

I have Moneydance 2010 - registered. I downloaded MD 2011 and installed it. I am unable to register with the 2010 registration code. No information on how to register the upgrade.
The user guide is still the 2010 version - no reference to 2011. Looks like there's still work to do. I'll contact MD and see what happens.
I'm curious as to why TidBits hasn't written about iBank. There's an ad for it on your site as I type this, but a search turns up nothing.

Time, mostly, and the fact that writing about financial management software can be pretty involved. (And none of us are accountants.) But don't worry, we're looking into Quicken alternatives since things change in Lion.
