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.

Survey happenings -- Thanks to all those who have returned the survey! We've decided to stop considering survey entries for buttons as of 17-Mar-92, which is one month after we sent it out, so please get your survey in if you wish to be in the running for a button. The survey is available from our Internet fileserver and is in TidBITS-107, and you can return via email to any of our addresses or via snail mail to the address above. For those of you who are redistributing TidBITS to a local mailing list or network, I'd appreciate it a lot if you could send me a note telling me where you are redistributing and approximately how many people are reading each issue if you can tell. Thanks!
