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.

Fileserver files -- For those of you who experienced difficulty in receiving files while I attended the show, please try again. We had some modem difficulties which I can now handle. In addition, keep in mind that the information files from Salient and Infogrip will not remain on the server indefinitely, so I recommend sending email to <sponsors@tidbits.com> for the index if you want information about Infogrip's chord keyboard or Salient's compression products (including an incredibly useful list of known conflicts with other programs).
