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.

Panorama V 4.9.6 Released

Send Article to a Friend

Panorama V 4.9.6 Released -- Back in September 2003, we noted in TidBITS-697 that ProVUE Development had released a public preview version of Panorama, their long-standing database program. Although Panorama V retains its preview status, it's working well in Mac OS X and ProVUE continues to add features quietly while moving toward a major release. New in the just-released Panorama 4.9.6 is a feature called Channels that links data in Panorama to the outside world in abstracted ways, initially via dialing the phone and sending email; a Channel Workshop wizard helps develop new channels. Another new feature, "generic fields," helps you link Panorama databases with similar information, and to link a database with external software such as Mac OS X's Address Book. More minor improvements include scroll wheel support, additional options for elements like checkboxes and radio buttons, support for building AppleScript scripts on the fly, and the capability to run procedures in the background. The upgrade is free to registered users of the preview version; anyone who wants to give Panorama V a spin can download the 7.4 MB file and use it with up to 250 records. [ACE]
