I just talked to Apple about spell checking as I type, being gone from most things I do now. They have no answer. Told me to try forums to find out if there's a work around.
Every web based email server I use and forums I reply or post to, used to spell check as I typed. Underlining the misspelled word or ones it thought were. These are not services offered by these sites. Some have their own spell check button, which opens another window.
When I went from Jaguar to Panther, I lost the ability to have the 'New Message' window come to the forefront when highlighting a URL in Safari and clicking Safari > Services > Mail > Send selection. I have to use Expose' to find the new message page now. Most people didn't know about this change until I pointed it out at an Apple store.
Is this just normal for Apple to delete things that work well when they update systems? Or is this something they aren't aware that they neglected. And is there some way to get the spell checker back system wide instead of just working on a few applications as it now does? Or do i have to just bite the bullet and learn to type more accurately and keep Sherlocks ditionary handy and hope that I'm not mispelling too many words. Like those above.
Thanks for your input in advance.
