Automatic Typo Fix

Recommended Posts

It would be useful to have a a feature that located and fixed double-word errors. (Did you spot the double-word error in the last sentence?) Perhaps something under Tools. It would have to do these fixes one at a time to give the writer a chance to skip the fix if desired.

 

I'm sure there are a lot of other typo fixes that would be useful.

Chime in anyone.

You can configure Storyist 2.1 and later to correct single word typos on Snow Leopard. It won't detect repeated words, though.

Exactly my point: it won't detect repeated words. So how about it? Does it make the list?

And I expect that there are other such common typos not handled by T/L/SL/Storyist (I just cant think of them just now)*.

*Edit: Ah! Unbalanced parentheses.
