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.

HyperCard 2.4.1 Update

Send Article to a Friend

Apple has released HyperCard 2.4.1, a minor update to its long-lived authoring and scripting tool. HyperCard 2.4.1 fixes problems when using HyperCard with drives larger than 2 GB, and removes the persistent display of the "Get QuickTime Pro" movie when using HyperCard 2.4 with QuickTime 3.0. (HyperCard 2.4 was released under Apple's original, poorly-received QuickTime 3.0 licensing terms; see "Apple Releases HyperCard 2.4" in TidBITS 427 and "Apple Revises QuickTime 3 Licensing" in TidBITS 430.) HyperCard 2.4.1 is available for $99 via the Apple Store; owners of HyperCard 2.3, 2.3.5, and 2.4 can download a free 5.2 MB update from Apple. HyperCard Player 2.4.1 (1.6 MB) is also available.
