Whenever I restart/log in, I have to select Spell Catcher in the Input menu as it defaults the US keyboard and SC does not activate.
This is only since 10.3. Previous version worked fine.

Once it is activated, it seems to say on until I log out or restart.

I've tried a few suggestions...
- Trash the file named like "com.apple.HIToolbox.......plist" (don't Empty the Trash) then restart, etc
- Quit Spell Catcher then restart it with control - updating input method, etc.

:(

Thanks!

Any chance you're using FileVault? I seem to recall issues like this with FV.

Thing is, maintaining the current input source across logout/in is entirely the responsibility of the Mac OS itself. Spell Catcher has no control whatsoever. Have you tried using one of the various cache cleaning utilities to see if that helps? Does the same happen with a brand new user account?
