Andrew Beers replied to John Syrinek's question in Evernote for Mac Requests (Versions 7.14 and under)While this is helpful, I think the previous two poster's points are very valid. The Evernote spell check is really, really aggressive, to the point of not being useful. I'm using Evernote on OSX, and in other apps when auto-correct fixes I word for me and I disagree, I can simply backspace and fix. Auto-correct doesn't kick in when I'm fixing a word. In Evernote, auto-correct *always* kicks in. So, my only option is to fix the text, pick up my mouse, dismiss the incorrect suggestion, and then continue typing. That's enough that the community here is desperately looking for ways to turn off auto correct entirely. The better solution would be for Evernote to fix the application to behave like other applications regarding spell check. BSR - please try using Evernote and another OSX application side-by-side with words that aren't in the dictionary (technical words or whatever). Your experience in Evernote will be frustrating, and will require the mouse to be successful.
Andrew Beers replied to customer101's question in Evernote for Mac Requests (Versions 7.14 and under)I'll second this as well - I don't want to turn off auto-correct, but right now it is WAY too aggressive in Evernote. As other posters have said, it is far easier to reject corrections in other applications, where in Evernote it is very difficult. I've resorted to typing the sentence, then going back to fix errors, being careful not to press the spacebar which will trigger a re-"correction". Here's a very concrete example: Type this: Tukey Press the spacebar, and Evernote "corrects" to "Turkey" Backspace over the r, leaving just "Tu" and type "key" Press the spacebar In Evernote, "Tukey" is again replaced by "Turkey". No matter now many times I take the above correction step, Evernote is steadfast that I'm wrong and it is right. In Mail, which in theory uses the same Mac-wide autocorrect engine, "Tukey" is left and is underlined in red after my correction, which is the correct behavior So, please don't add a special "disable spelling" for Evernote, just make it behave well as it does in other apps. This is just a bug that needs to be fixed.
