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.

If you're interested in helping translate articles, send Francesco mail. The Italian translation of TidBITS is available via the Web at the URL below and via a mailing list, so tell friends who might be interested in reading TidBITS in Italian. To subscribe, send email to <tidbits-it-on@tidbits.com>; to unsubscribe, send email to <tidbits-it-off@tidbits.com>. Thanks to Francesco and our other volunteer translators for making TidBITS an increasingly multi-lingual publication. [ACE]
