I found your program most useful but miss a function I found only in a Windows application called UltraEdit (http://www.ultraedit.com). This text editor features a kind of auto correction Spell Catcher could have too.

UltraEdit creates a temporary dictionary from the document and uses this for autocomplete suggestions. Why is that useful? In most texts, recurrences happen. When a word like for instance a products or persons name is entered, chances are high that it will be repeated in the text. But it is unlikely to appear in another text so a permanent entry in a user dictionary is unnecessary. This feature would be a great addition to Spell Catcher.

I agree - it would be a great addition. In fact, we already have such a feature in our Windows product, Spell Catcher Plus. The plan is to add this to Spell Catcher X, just when this will happen isn't something I can say or predict at this point in time, though.
