to be impatient. However, 3.5 months later still no fix for correct Apple spell checking
mechanisms in TM. Since I use TM daily for writing LaTeX documents in both, English and
German, multi-lingual spell checking is essential for me to render TM useful. With all
respect to your work on TM, may I request a more urgent inspection and fix of the
still-not-working spell checking facilities in TM?
Well, I could say the same towards Apple. They had broken the multi-language spelling
check in Leopard, then fixed it in Snow Leopard (1.5 year after I had submitted them bug
reports), just to break it again in Lion. The automatic spelling does not work at all in
Lion, changing spelling language to specific language has no effect on the text that is
already there in Cocoa NSTextView, the underlined errors remain, even the words are
perfectly fine for the selected language.
So I wouldn't blame Allan for that but rather Apple for this bogus implementation.
Seems like guys at Cupertino were so sure about quality so skipped QA testing :( AFAIK TM1
spelling was working fine, because it was not based on Cocoa views, but it was somehow
done on lower level.
To make it clear: My intention was not to "blame" something on somebody,
rather it was a more strongly formulated wish ;-)
I see, Lion would downgrade everything again (heaven help if Mountain
Lion will "fix" things again). May give cocoAspell another trial.
