Automatic Spelling Correction

TextEdit can automatically correct many spelling errors as you type. To enable this feature, open the TextEdit Preferences (from the TextEdit menu). Make sure the “New Document” tab is chosen. Toward the bottom of the window, check the “Correct spelling automatically” box. Close the Preferences pane.

If TextEdit can’t figure out how to spell it or if automatic correction is turned on, you’ll probably see a red_line.jpg under misspelled words. See Lesson 14 to learn to use the spell checker.
