What's New
Version 10.4.1:

Please note that the system requirements have changed!

  • Spell Catcher X 10.4.1 requires Mac OS X 10.5 and later, running on Intel Mac hardware.
  • PowerPC Mac users running Mac OS X 10.5 must continue to use Spell Catcher X 10.4 (see 'Related Links').
New
  • New Cancel Last Expansion command in Spell Catcher's Input menu. This will delete any text entered since the most recent shorthand expansion or completion. In most applications, this is generally equivalent to choosing Edit > Undo. There are some applications, however, where the Undo command may work differently-undoing more than you might want. The Cancel Last Expansion command is useful in such applications, particularly when you type an abbreviation that you didn't mean to.
  • New Special Key for use in shorthand expansions to explicitly specify the final position of the insertion point (Insert pop-up > Special Key > Position Cursor Here).
  • Ability to show and sort by Date Modified in Shorthand Glossary document windows. Control-click the table column header to see a shortcut menu to set the visibility of the columns. It's now possible to hide the Expansion column, as the Expansion is always visible in the text area on the right side of the window.
New for OS X 10.7 Lion
  • Spell Catcher's input method application (64-bit capable) makes use of new-in-Lion input method functionality. The most noticeable will be improved performance of DirectCorrect in many applications.
  • The Spell Catcher application now "opts-out" of OS X 10.7 Lion's "Reopen windows when logging back in" feature. This means that the Spell Catcher application will only open (at login) when required by its input method, or by the Mac OS X system-wide spelling checker.
  • The Spell Catcher application now supports OS X 10.7 OS X 10.7 Lion's suspend/resume functionality for the Preferences, Find in References, Check Word, and Edit Macro windows.
Enhanced
  • Improvements to Spell Catcher > Get Updates and Languages window, adding a pane to display a full, styled text description of the selected update.
Updated
  • Many internal code changes, primarily to support OS X 10.7 (Lion) features and capabilities.
  • Minor performance improvements throughout.
  • Built with Xcode 4.2.1 on OS X 10.7 Lion.
Fixed
  • Properly expand shorthands that include "Special Keys" when using the input methods Completion feature.
  • Properly update the Spell Catcher application's Dock icon on Lion.
  • Fixes to long-standing problems extracting the correct name, license code, and e-mail address from text dropped or pasted to the License Manager window.
  • Fixes to naming of Ghostwriter files and folders (input method application).
  • Worked around bugs in Mac OS X's Folder Manager that could prevent Scripting Additions from working in the Spell Catcher application.
  • Numerous other far more obscure issues.

I have used this program for years and have found it a most useful resource. I often write papers with lots of references to ancient texts. The program locates the spelling of those terms with ease and has helped me when I was at the end of my rope!

I also want to commend the support. I just recently updated. I had to change my email address and ran into all kids of problems getting my new license. Many thanks to Evan Gross for hanging in there. There was some sort of problem with my email that allowed some messages from the developer through but never the key information with my license. Mr. Gross sent me 7 !!! emails that did not reach me. He finally called me personally to get things worked out. Got the license and am up and running. Great support! He really went the extra mile to make sure I could operate the software.

Spell Catcher X Lite is a lower-cost version of Spell Catcher X - sacrificing some of its power-user features to save you a few dollars. Still, Spell Catcher X Lite is value-packed!

What's the difference between Spell Catcher X and Spell Catcher X Lite?

Spell Catcher X Lite's all-in-one-product features include:
  • Available-everywhere as-you-type (interactive) and after-you've-typed-it (batch) spell checking. Fully integrated with the standard Mac OS X Spelling Panel.
  • Powerful, fast, searchable, state-of-the-art shorthand expansions. Date and time shorthands that are infinitely configurable.
  • Two different English-language thesaurus databases available - the "right word" is just a few keystrokes away.
  • U.S. English dictionary with definitions.
  • If you can't find it in the thesaurus or dictionary definitions, you'll find it on the Internet using Spell Catcher's integrated dictionary server support.
  • Tailor the way Spell Catcher works to the way you and the applications you use work. Almost every preference can be set on a per-application basis.
