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.

Adam & Tonya Discuss Working Together on MacNotables

Send Article to a Friend

Adam & Tonya Discuss Working Together on MacNotables -- In the most recent episode of our group MacNotables podcast, we did something a little different. Since only Tonya and I were on the line to talk with Chuck Joiner, we ended up discussing what it's like to work with one's spouse in the Mac industry and how we divvy up the various tasks involved with running TidBITS and Take Control. For instance, Tonya takes care of the financial end of things, whereas I'm the network administrator. Since we hadn't prepared for the topic, it ended up being an extremely unusual and far-ranging conversation. We frequently receive comments from people who are surprised we can work together, or who can't imagine what it would be like to work with a spouse, but for us, it's just how our lives work. Give it a listen! [ACE]
