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.

Apple Extends .Mac Deadline -- If any iTools members remain on the fence about whether to pay for .Mac, Apple is giving you a couple more weeks to decide. The special $50 upgrade price for current iTools members will be available until 14-Oct-02 instead of 30-Sep-02; on 15-Oct-02, any data still in iTools accounts which have not signed up for .Mac services will be erased. So, if you don't plan to use .Mac, you have an extra two weeks to rescue any data and inform correspondents to use a different email address. [JLC]
