    Does anyone know how to change the dictionary away from American spelling. Everything in 'International' is set to Australian. But still get the spell check trying to change everything to 'ize'. So annoying!!

    Go to System Preferences > International, and under the Language tab click 'Edit List' and select Australian English.

    Make sure it's at the top of the list, and restart your applications. American spell check will be gone! :D

    Edit: oops I didn't notice that you put everything in International to Australian lol! >< But this is the usual way to change dictionary languages.
