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.

EvangeList Expands Web Presence

Send Article to a Friend

EvangeList Expands Web Presence -- Guy Kawasaki's 30,000-person EvangeList, a high-volume mailing list carrying Apple propaganda for the Macintosh faithful, now has its own full Web site (a number of other Web sites carried selections from EvangeList or provided search tools). The site is hosted by the new MacAddict magazine and looks like it will be a useful resource because the postings are nicely organized by category and sorted by date. I recommend that you take a look, especially if you're feeling depressed about Apple or need information to back up the standard Mac versus PC arguments. [ACE]
