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.

Congratulations to Paul Brown at gmail.com, Bruce Morris at telusplanet.net, Eric Smith at verizon.net, Greg Searle at optusnet.com.au, Edwin Bantilan at aol.com, John Ingham at wildblue.net, jscramton at Excite, Marc Rhodes at mac.com, Terry McCain at tds.net, and Egil Stenseth at gmail.com, whose entries were chosen randomly in the last DealBITS drawing and who each received a copy of BeLight Software’s interior design app Live Interior 3D, worth $49.99. We presume they will all be reorganizing their living rooms this week.

Don’t fret if you want to test virtual furniture placements (or contemplate what it would be like to take out that wall between the kitchen and the dining room), since BeLight Software is offering all TidBITS readers a whopping 70 percent discount off Live Interior 3D through 26 June 2014. To take advantage of this offer, which drops the $49.99 list price to $14.99, use this link to purchase from the Mac App Store. Thanks to the 331 people who entered this DealBITS drawing, and good luck in future drawings!
