Hi, I'm a long time user of Scrivener. However, I have never been able to initiate the 'Auto-correct' feature for spelling. so, I'm beginning to find it frustration on having to find my own errors. The only way I can do this is by copying and pasting a block of text at a time and placing into something like Pages to check.

I have 'Auto-corrections 'ticked' in Preferences>Corrections. Am I missing something? should I have it enabled anywhere else?

Thanks,

Stuart Norfolk

Seems rather odd that yours isn't working then. I was hoping that there was just a box that had been unchecked.

Hopefully someone will be able to give you an answer.
