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.

Intuit has released an R6 update for Quicken 7 and Quicken 7 Deluxe. The update fixes several bugs (see TidBITS-353 and TidBITS-359), and the non-standard ROI (Return On Investment) calculation in the Portfolio window has been replaced by the preferred ROI calculation used in the Investment Performance report. In addition, Q7 users may wish to know that Connectix's Speed Doubler can significantly speed the opening of Register windows, and indexing error warnings can sometimes be avoided by increasing Quicken's memory allocation (an additional 1 MB worked for me).
