Author Biography

Agen Schmitz is a freelance writer and editor with a lot of Amazon time under his belt. After leaving Amazon in 2003 (as senior editor for the Camera & Photo store), Agen has written for the Amazon Electronics Store blog (mainly covering Apple news) and created product content for a variety of Amazon categories — from PCs to comforter sets to luxury watches. He lives in Seattle with his wife and son (who likes to think his father’s iPad is his own). (January 2012)

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.
