Hello,

 

I'd like to disable the spell check that is driving me crazy.

Is there a general preference panel where I can deactivate this option?

 

If not, should I use this code in the Terminal?

 

defaults write NSGlobalDomain NSAutomaticSpellingCorrectionEnabled -bool NO

 

 

 

Thank you?

    that looks right to me.

     

    or you can do it this way:

     

     

    1. Launch System Preferences, either by clicking the System Preferences icon in the Dock, or by selecting System Preferences from the Apple menu.

    2. Click the Language & Text preference pane.

    3. In the Language & Text preference pane, select the Text tab.

    4. To enable the automatic spelling check, place a check mark next to the Correct Spelling Automatically item.

    5. To disable the automatic spelling check, remove the check mark next to the Correct Spelling Automatically item.

    I just wanted to prevent the underline of mis spelled words in pages...  the sys pref method above didn't help that.  But in pages under Edit/Spelling  there is option to turn off "check spelling while typing"
