My spell check doesn't work anymore in Mountain Lion... Also, there is no ML discussion area, so I chose this.

Any ways, in Safari, it used to correct for me automatically. Now, it won't even underline words that are spelled incorrectly.

I'm typing 'haf,' which normally show the said behavior of correction, or correction options...

I checked in system preferences, and it should be on.

HELP, PLEASE!

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7), 13-inch 2.26 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo

    Where is it 'switched on'?

     

    Try System Preferences.. > Language & Text | Text 'Correct spelling automatically'.

     

    There is a Mountain Lion forum here:

    is that okay?

     

     

    Maybe, but why not try setting it to the language you are actually using to see if that gives you better results?

    My god I have this issue as well. Spell checking does not work in Safari. I think that is the last straw... I'm going back to Lion.

     

    These are the issues I have... mind you I am technical I am pretty good at solving these things... not with mountain lion. It's like it's a beta release.

     

    Issues:

    - Automatic backlight brightness adjustment floods my log with errors unless I turn it off

    - Freezes when I wake from sleep

    - ics invitations no longer work in my calander

    - Spell check not working

     

    What features does it add? Nothing useful enough to outweigh the issues.

    Type something anywhere, right click it, go to spelling and grammar and click "Check Spelling While Typing"
