Things like auto-correcting "hte" to "the" and "i" to "I" and "adn" to "and" are super handy for me, but the red squiggly is a double-edged sword. It is somewhat useful but it is highly annoying when typing up a paper for Spanish.

The problem is that a feature I would like to use in Word, theoretically, is stupid as hell and won't listen to me. I'm sure there's some way to get it to work but it's just easier to use appleworks for that stuff. eg.
1. This is the first item in a test
a. this is item a
b. this is item b
c. this is item c
2. .... [you get the point]
Word will not let me do that without numbering the space 2. and then the next item 3. until I delete 2., etc. Pain in the ass. Appleworks doesn't do it automatically, but the tabs work fine. No arguing required. I don't want Appleworks to do it for me because it never works right. There's a niche that Appleworks fills now and could benefit from a couple of enhancements and that's it. It won't ever be an Office replacement and shouldn't try to be...
