    I thought Snow Leopard had the option to fix spelling errors as you're typing. I tried right-clicking and enabling it, but it still does nothing. Little help please? What the heck am I missing here?

    I was trying it in TextEdit. I got it working though. It doesn't correct everything, but if you type something like "dont" it will change it to "don't".

    Sometimes it doesn't correct until you're halfway through the sentence.

    I was going to mention this as it was how I experienced it in TextEdit. It repaired after a few more words were typed.

    Some words will repair automatically if they are obvious errors like a character swap. I tried it a few times in this reply (Safari) and got pretty good result.
