What does Spelling control?

Spelling?
Authored by: Wintermute on Dec 16, '05 05:17:36AM

Since OS X still dosen't have a built in Norwegian dictionary I have to use the Spelling prefpane to add additional dictionaries.

No one uses FruitMenu?
Authored by: pete on Dec 16, '05 09:32:12AM

I have used FruitMenu from the first day I saw that - way back in 10.1 days.

I like to adjust my Apple menu to how I want the Apple menu. I also like having logout, restart, shutdown happen without extra key presses or mouse clicks. If I want to log out - I don't want to have to click a box asking me if that's what I really wanted - or press a modifier key.

Being able to re-arrange, add or take out items is great.

I have 7 extra prefpanes, although 4 are rarely used. I should get rid of them sometime.

Typing command-shift-q return to logout is fast enough for me.

1. Esperance DV - RAM disk tool
2. GeekTool
3. Processor
4. StuffIt AVR
5. USB Overdrive

Stuffit AVR and GeekTool are disabled, but still there. Use Esperance DV for quick access to frequently used files.
