I was hunting for something in my Mac OS X hard copy folder and came upon some notes I had taken when reading Mac OS X The Missing Manual. Something I had read then and totally forgot since has been renewed in my memory, and my daily usage for sure. Here it is...
Ever had a word that you were trying to spell correctly, and you are sure you don't have it right? You type it into the dictionary widget as best you can and get nothing. You try another spelling. Still nothing. SO annoying.
I have just discovered that Spotlight addresses even this. It contains a spelling aid. All you have to do is type in the first few letters of the word in question and then press OPT+ESC. Spotlight immediately produces a list of every word Mac OS X knows about that starts with the letters you have typed in! Fabulous!
Yet one more amazing productivity aid seamlessly integrated into Mac OS X. Truly amazing!
