OS X :: Spelling Auto Correction Of Capitals

Apr 14, 2010

I've just managed to turn on the 'Correct Spelling Automatically' option in Safari (and other Apple apps) by right clicking in a text field and choosing 'Spelling and Grammar -> Correct Spelling Automatically' But one thing that I find myself doing a lot, and would like to correct is problems like typing e.g. PAtrick has a MAc -- holding that shift key just too long. Anybody know if there's auto-correction for this? I know there is in Pages and Word (under prefs) but can't seem to find it for Safari, Mail, TextEdit etc.

Mac is great, there MUST be a plug in or a faster way.

OS X :: Snow Leopard - Stop Replacing CAPITALS?

Oct 25, 2009

I think it's the new text replacement stuff in Snow Leopard that's causing this 'problem'. Every time I type more than one capital using the Shift key, the other capitals are replaced by lower case letters. Now this is useful when you mistakenly started a sentence with two capitals, but I find it extremely annoying when I actually do need multiple capitals. And using caps lock all the time is annoying as well.

Is there a way to turn this off? I like the rest of the hole text replacement thing, and would like to keep that turned on. But I can't really find anything that has to do with 'accidental double capitals' or something like that.

Final Cut Pro X :: 10.1.2 Erratic In Exporting Color Correction

Jul 1, 2014

I see that at least one other user is having the same problem with 10.1.2.  My movies of four or five clips (auditions for actors) are not carrying color correction forward upon export on all the clips.  Some, yes.  Some, no.  For several hours over two days I have tried everything I can think of to isolate the problem and haven't come up with anything.  Sometimes when I export a second time after first disabling and then re-enabling the color correction settings, the second export will be fine.   

I've sent in a feedback note to Apple, but I have no reason to believe they'll respond (several times over the years I've done the same on various issues, and have never gotten a response).

Mar 2, 2009

Are there any drawbacks to enabling iTunes' option to "Use error correction when reading Audio CDs" in the import settings (other than ripping will simply take longer)? What I would really like to know is whether or not enabling this feature will in any way adversely affect the quality of CD rips I get?

Im a new IMAC owner.I'm running Snow Leapord OS. I see when I am typing that if the computer detects a spelling mistake, it underlines the word in red.

I have Office 2004 for Mac running on OSX10.3.9 on an eMac. In Word, under Tools, the Spelling and Grammar function is gone although when typing, errors are underlined as usual. On other user accounts on the eMac, the Spelling and Grammar function is there under Tools.

What gives/ How can i get it back?

Would trashing a pref file help? If so, which one?

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Does Address Book Have Auto-capitalization Or Auto-fill Feature

Mar 31, 2012

In a previous contact software program I have used for years, the first letter of names, streets, and cities, were automatically capitalized as I typed them in. Unfortunately, that software does not work under Lion and the developer is out of business. Because of that, I am trying to convert to Address Book. I can't find the ability to have that same thing happen in Address Book. Is there something I can turn on in Preferences or some other obscure window? My old contact software also automatically filled in cities, names, or states that I previously entered. Great time saver but doesn't seem to exist in Address Book.

Safari :: Deleting An Incorrect Auto-complete/auto-fill Entry

Jul 1, 2012

I don't know if this is properly autofill or autocomplete - the two overlap too much anyway so I'm not wasting brain cells trying to come up with a distinction that makes sense to non-engineers. ANYWAY. Here's the point. 

I'm on my bank website. My login is xtnjohnson -- just like here. Only I mistyped it once, so in autofill/autocomplete (whichever it is), I get a little drop-down showing two options: xtnjohnson or xtnjohson.  

I want to delete only the second option. I recall at sometime finding a very simple way that involved highlighting the offending entry and hitting either control-delete, shift-delete, command-delete, or function-delete, only I can't seem to get any of those combinations to work. And of course I can't find the thread anymore. 

The solution did *not* involve dealing with the autofill preferences in *any* way -- I've seen that option and it doesn't help (a) because there's no quick way to find the website where the problem is occurring (my list is long), (b) even when I go through my list, I don't see my bank's url, (c) the place for entering my login appears to be in something like JavaScript, so I'm not sure it'd be tracked in one of those lists, and (d) I don't know that this is properly an "autofill" problem anyway.

Applications :: What Happened To Check Spelling Before Sending?

Nov 4, 2010

My boss is VERY used to the feature in Entourage where it forces her to check spelling before the email sends, right after clicking "Send."

YES... I know Outlook now underlines misspelled words in red. But thats not enough...she wants that feature back, and I can't find it.

Applications :: Switch Between IWork And Spelling Dictionaries?

Sep 14, 2007

Just started using Pages for Word Processing, so far I am more impressed with it than I thought and have started using it more than NeoOffice but one gripe is the spellchecker. I can't find any way to change the dictionary from 'American English' to well.. 'English English'!

I've changed every possible OS setting I can find to UK English but it still claiming that words like 'colour' is spelled wrong!?

Anyone know how to switch this over?

Safari :: Change Default Spelling Dictionary?

Jun 9, 2012

How does one change the default spelling dictionary for Safari on Windows? For the Mac, it changes in response to the default locale, but on Windows, it just sets to American English and you cannot change it anywhere I can see. All my locale information in Windows is set to UK English.In fact on some websites, like this one, the spelling checker seems to be disabled! I'm on Windows 7 64-bit, BTW, running Safari 5.1.7?

MacBook Pro :: Auto-recovery Microsoft Word 2008 - No Auto-recovery Files?

Apr 4, 2012

I am trying to recovery a file created in Microsoft Office 2008 for Mac. The file was lost after a power outage. In an attempt to recover the file, my first thought was to check for the file in the Microsoft AutoRecovery 2008 folder within my hardrive. However, the folder only contains a total of four files! Why? If my Microsoft Word is set up to auto save a document every 10 minutes...then how is it possible the folder could only contain 4 files? I am at a loss of how else to recover this file. I am currently attempting to do so with a free trial of Data Recovery Software to see if the file I lost even still exists, with no success so far.

Jan 28, 2010

So i went and bought my first imac (2003 second hand for really cheap), which has osx 10.4.1 on it (tiger i presume) and came with no wires/keyboard/mouse. So im using a windows keyboard and a standard usb mouse. Anyway the damn thing has a username and password so im locked out and managed to get 4cd installation of tiger. It doesnt seem to autoboot from cd, held down c during restart and still it boots straight to the username password menu. All I really want to do is just bypass the password or simply reinstall the os By the way, I dont have access to another mac and I dont have a working 4g and below ipod
