I'm working in a bilingual environment (French and English) and I want to know if Spellcatcher support French dictonnaries.

The application I want to use SCP with is on a Citrix Terminal Server with a seamless windows activated. If SC is running localy, will it "catch" the information from the Citrix windows?

Thanks

SpellCatcher is multilingual and has both French and Canadian French dictionaries.

As for SCX working in your particular setup, I'm not entirely sure, but SCX works with most standards-compliant Mac OS X applications. It does tend to choke in an application such as Terminal, however, so you'd probably need to double-check.

I honestly have no clue if it will work with Citrix windows, I've never even heard of them.

If it's a Carbon or Cocoa application, chances are good. If it's X11, you're probably out of luck. If it's Java, it should work in SCX version 10.1, coming in a couple of months.

Evan,

Any particular reason why SCX's Interactive features don't work right in Terminal (on my machine anyway)?

Must say that I had to scratch my head at the thought of a spell checker in Terminal! All of the folks I know who use the cli heavily never seem to have an issue as they know all the commands backwards and forwards.

Then again, you may be coming from someone who uses vi or pico to write rather than an external text editor (TextEdit, BBEdit, Tex-Edit, etc.).

At the very least, if a method was found to run SCX in Terminal, at least a dictionary of cli commands needs to be found... know of any good sources?

IMHO I would suggest that there are a number of issues that should be addressed first before figuring out how to enable SCX for vi or pico users.

I was thinking of the ability to use SCX's glossary features rather than the spell checker in Terminal...

But it definitely is not a big priority AFAIAC.

It might work ok in some Terminal apps (but since you generally can't backspace beyond the beginning of a line, well, it's only *so* useful).

BUT Apple's Terminal.app is a very strange beast - their text handling is kind of bizarre.

SCX doesn't work very well in it at all. More Apple's fault than mine.
