Hello,
I installed Mac Snow Leopard, and now Spell Catcher will start randomly without me invoking it. How can I get it to stop doing that?

Nothing random about it - chances are that you're simply seeing the Mac OS itself launching Spell Catcher as needed. Generally this would mean a Spell Catcher language is being used by the system-wide spelling service.

You can always setup your Language & Text System Preferences (Text tab, Spelling popup) so that you're not using a Spell Catcher language. But if you do use the Mac OS X spelling service, you wouldn't have access to your Spell Catcher X Learned Words and Shorthands. Depends on the way you work as to whether this is a big deal or not.

Of course, if you do use Spell Catcher's input method, then the Spell Catcher app must be open.

It never used to do this before though.

You mean "before" as in when you were using Leopard?

Lots of things are different when you install a major Mac OS X upgrade…
