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.

Signed TidBITS T-Shirt Charity Auction

Send Article to a Friend

Signed TidBITS T-Shirt Charity Auction -- At Macworld Expo 2002 in San Francisco, I donated a signed TidBITS t-shirt to the World Without Borders folks to auction off for their charity Mac-A-Wish Foundation. It aims to provide Macintosh hardware and software to ill children to help them communicate with the outside world and continue their educations when they can't attend school. World Without Borders has now put the t-shirt up on eBay for auction, ending on 20-Mar-02, and all proceeds will go to their Mac-A-Wish Foundation (not yet an IRS-recognized non-profit). Of course, if you have old hardware or software you'd like to donate to the cause, contact World Without Borders to coordinate your gift. [ACE]
