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.

A Trio of Radio Interviews

Send Article to a Friend

A Trio of Radio Interviews -- In conjunction with the 15th anniversary of TidBITS and the release of our Take Control ebooks about Tiger, I've been doing the radio show rounds. On 27-Apr-05 I took a break from tracking down a maddening bug to talk about the history of TidBITS and the Macintosh with Gene Steinberg of the Tech Night Owl Live. Then, on 30-Apr-05, I spent a snappy 10 minutes chatting to Scott Sheppard of Inside Mac Radio. And then late on 01-May-05, I had one of my always-enjoyable discussions with Chuck Joiner on the User Group Report. [ACE]
