I like Lion's new global auto-correct mostly, and like having it on -- but when MU[SH|DD]ing, it's deeply vexing. I can right-click on the text input window and uncheck Spelling and Grammer->Correct Spelling Automatically, but it doesn't "stick".

It would be super cool if there was either a preference to disable autocorrection always, or to make this manual toggle at least persist. I know this is an OS-level feature, but I'm hoping Atlantis can exert some selective control over it.

Yeah, Lion has disabled the function where apps used to remember the (system-provided) automatic correction toggle. The 1.0 release I'm working on (killing off Panther/PowerPC support et al and preparing to move forward) just disables autocorrection entirely by default, but I'm pondering adding it to the spawn-level preferences. (I can't hook into the system-provided menu item, but I can manually toggle spelling correction off when the system turns it on.)

You know, it's kind of funny that Lion remembers all sorts of things I want it to forget, like all the documents I had open the last time I quit my word processor... but it won't remember that I turned auto correct off the last time I was using Atlantis. :angry:

Anyway, I appreciate the work you're doing on this Sparks! This persistent auto correct thing is persistently annoying, but at least now I know if I do the 'right click in input window' route it actually affects all spawns so I don't have to do it for each individual spawn from the Edit menu anymore. (Talk about a headache.) For now I've actually disabled Lion's global spelling correction... we'll see how much that bites me in the butt. :lol:

Believe me, you are *far* from the only person to comment on the irony of this. I get why Apple did it people *did* genuinely get confused if they accidentally turned off autocorrect in an app and then forgot about it, then complained that autocorrect didn't work but I think it was a bad move to remove the app-specific setting. In the earliest builds of Lion, you could overwrite this on a per-application value, but then in about 10.7.1 or 10.7.2 it started just only reading the global value. :(
