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.

Adobe Lightroom 4.2

Send Article to a Friend

Adobe has released Lightroom 4.2 with a number of fixes applied to the professional photo cataloging and editing application. The update includes a fix for stacked photos that were hidden in both the Grid view and Filmstrip, resolves a problem with publishing videos to Facebook, ensures that Lightroom photo can be edited as JPEGs in Photoshop Elements, and fixes an issue with carriage returns in either the Title or Caption field that invalidated a Flickr upload. The release also adds support for 22 new cameras (though offering just preliminary support for the Nikon D600) and 43 new lenses. ($149 new, free update, 407 MB, release notes)
