Quitting the Spell Catcher X application changed significantly in version 10.2.2. Do yourself a favor, make sure you're using Spell Catcher X 10.2.2 or later, and forget about all the "tips and tricks" related to quitting previous versions.

Do this:

  1. In the Spell Catcher application, choose Spell Catcher > Quit Spell Catcher (or type Command-Q).
  2. If you see an alert about Spell Catcher being the active input source, click the default Quit button.

That's it! Unlike previous versions, there's no need to choose a keyboard from the input menu, and the Spell Catcher application will reliably "stay Quit".

To start using Spell Catcher again:

  1. Choose Open Spell Catcher from the input menu (if Spell Catcher is still the active input source), or
  2. Open the Spell Catcher application as you would any other.
