At Apple we show you how to customize, or remove, OS X Lion’s autocomplete text. And in principle everything is clear but there’s more. There is a small detail that sometimes most of us take for granted avoiding sharing knowledge with other users who do not know.
In the Language and Text section , in the System Preferences panel, we see how we can select the option to correct spelling by detecting the language automatically. This is great but sometimes we can run into situations where one word is very similar for several languages. In those cases the system resolves it according to the priority order for each language, and that’s what we’re going to show you. How to define the priority order of languages.
Within the drop-down menu of Spelling , at the end of the page, there is an option that says Configure… If we click on this, a list of all the languages we want to enable will appear. Well, we can reorder that list so that if we write a word it will try to correct it, if it’s misspelled, in that language and if not it will go on to the next one.
