    I am curious how to actually fix the words that spell check finds that are wrong. I am use to right clicking and jut fixing it, but now that I cannot ... how do I do it?

    Why can't you now?
    Have you changed something?
    What Mac OS X version do you use?
    Does it also happen in another, even temporarily created, user account?

    I am on a 2011 MBP using Lion ...

    I cant cause macs do not have right click ... I do not want to have to carry around a PC mouse just to right click to use the spell check function.

    Macs have right-click. Just go into the trackpad or mouse settings and enable it if it isn't already.

    Use two fingers to right click or enable "Secondary Tap" in System Preferences > Trackpad if you like to tap.

    Additionally, Ctrl+Click = Right Click
