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.

QuickMail early birds

QuickMail early birds miss out on CE's latest offer. Hoping to entice more of their installed user base to upgrade to QuickMail 3.0 (see TidBITS-240), CE Software is now offering a free copy of QuicKeys (the company's personal automation software) for each multi-user QuickMail package upgraded. (Upgrading costs $12 per user.) The offer is valid until the end of December, 1994. Mixed reviews and the absence of academic or quantity discounts for the upgrades have kept many sites from moving to QuickMail 3.0. SoftArc is even advertising "sidegrades" to FirstClass from earlier versions of QuickMail at a lower per-user price. [MHA]
