There's some evidence that OSX 10.6 Snow Leopard will include in its System Preferences a universal 'replace' panel similar to the Tools::Autocorrect::Replace functionality in NeoOffice/OpenOffice.
Does anyone know how that will jibe with the NeoOffice internal system? There doesn't appear to be (so far) an option in the OSX panel to exclude particular applications, so presumably OSX and NeoOffice will compete with each other for supremacy over who gets to autocorrect text, unless there's a way to choose who wins.
Yup, that's the one - though the article I was reading didn't mention the 'you can turn each substitution on/off manually' factor, which is pleasing. Still, I think they ought to include an exclusion by app option - or a 'substitution list by app' would be even cooler .
I'm wondering because this has the potential to freak out a lot of users who don't know about/how to use the substitutions in either OSX or in NeoOffice. This forum already gets a number of support queries about substitution/autocorrect as it is.
