## cocoAspell

 After using Excalibur for many years I decided to give cocaAspell a try. This is all done after clean install of High Sierra on a freshly reformatted disk. I installed cocoSspell from MacExtras and the installation went fine (I was expecting problems based on Herb’s tutorial "A First Time Install of cocoAspell in El Capitan, Sierra and High Sierra”). I selected dictionary “English (United States) [w_accents] (I don’t understand the difference between the various US dictionaries), and checked the TeX/LaTeX filter. I opened a source file in TS 4.01 and  while most latex commands are properly ignored, others aren’t, for example, \includegraphics, \textit and \mathcal, among others. Apparently the user can add latex commands under the tab Filters in the cocoAspell preference pane. "includegraphics[]{}" is already in that list but is still marked as a typo in the source. I added “textit{√}”, as per instructions on the preference pane, but it is still marked as a typo in the source. Any suggestions?

Then, choose the English dictionary in TeXShop's Source tab in TeXShop->Preferences if you want to only use it in TeXShop. I use it for all my work and choose English (Aspell) as the default dictionary in the Text tab of the Keyboard Pane in System Preferences. You can check that setting using the  Edit->Show Spelling and Grammar menu item in TeXShop; it should then be set to English (Aspell). Otherwise you might try to log out and back in because that information may first be read in once, when you log in. Last, but possibly not least try re-booting in case the info is read in only once when booting---truly a last resort.

## Re: cocoAspell

 In reply to this post by Herbert Schulz I'm not sure if the dictionary makes a difference but I use the English (alone---I think it loads several individual versions) dictionary.  I use it for all my work and choose English (Aspell) as the default dictionary in the Text tab of the Keyboard Pane in System Preferences. You can check that setting using the  Edit->Show Spelling and Grammar menu item in TeXShopI set the disctionary in the keyboard pane to English (Aspell), but when I spell check in TS the default is always set to “Automatic by Language” and I must manually change it each time to English (Aspell). IS this how it is supposed to be?Otherwise you might try to log out and back in because that information may first be read in once, when you log in. Last, but possibly not least try re-booting in case the info is read in only once when booting---truly a last resort. I can’t get it to work. I run cd "/Library/Application Support/cocoAspell/aspell6-en-6.0-0"sudo make installwhich I had skipped before, changed the dictionary to English, and rebooted. No luck. What is marked as a typo and what is ignored appears random.  Here is what my source looks like:----------- Please Consult the Following Before Posting ----------- TeX FAQ: http://www.tex.ac.uk/faqList Reminders and Etiquette: https://sites.esm.psu.edu/~gray/tex/List Archives: http://dir.gmane.org/gmane.comp.tex.macosx                https://email.esm.psu.edu/pipermail/macosx-tex/TeX on Mac OS X Website: http://mactex-wiki.tug.org/List Info: https://email.esm.psu.edu/mailman/listinfo/macosx-tex

I had to quit and relaunch TS, also changed the dictionary from plain “English” to one of the “United States” dictionaries in the cocoaspell pane. “English” seems to ignore the tex/latex filter. To summarize my experience, there are too many settings that need to be made in too many different places (TS, keyboard pane, cocoaspell pane), and it might be a good idea to document them somewhere.

The choices I get are: “Automatic Language”, “en”, “en_gb” etc, which seem abbreviated names for the same dictionaries I see in the Keyboard preference pane. > > Themis Howdy, Does the Text tab of Keyboard Pane in System Preferences show that you have an English (with possible other stuff) dictionary? If not Check that you have a dictionary checked off in the Spelling pane supplied by cocoAspell. As I said I just have the English dictionary checked off there. Then an English (Aspell) dictionary appears in the Text tab of the Keyboard pane. Finally, in TeXShop I have English as the dictionary chosen in the Source tab of TeXShop->Preferences (you may have to update to the latest 4.08 beta to be able to change that---I've inherited it from ages ago) and Edit->Show Spelling and Grammar shows English (Aspell) as my dictionary. I believe the setting in System Preferences set the Global Default for all apps (e.g., I use the English (Aspell) in Mail) while the TeXShop Preference setting is the default set for TeXShop and the one in the Spelling and Grammar window is the actual one you are using (which you can change for any given document. Note: there is also a TeXShop directive that selects a dictionary: % !TEX spellcheck = English to select the English (Aspell) dictionary on a document by document basis. Again, I just check off English (with no extra descriptors) in the cocoAspell Spelling pane.

With these settings latex commands are ignored in spell-checking but there are some problems: Some common words such as proven, extremum, discretized, and linearization are flagged as mispelled. In $a=bk + kT$, "kT" is flagged as mispelled (but not "bk"). Same with some other double letter combinations in math.

I'd expect that TextEdit would display whatever is chosen here. > Texshop:  "English" (preference sticks even though I am on 4.01). TeXShop/Preferences/Source is where TeXShop is overriding the System Preference choice. The item in the TeXShop/Preferences/Source pane has been there since TeXShop 3.81 so I'd expect 4.01 to have it. I'm not sure when it got broken but in the latest 4.08 beta it seems to be fixed. > > With these settings latex commands are ignored in spell-checking but there are some problems: > > Some common words such as proven, extremum, discretized, and linearization are flagged as mispelled. > > In $a=bk + kT$, "kT" is flagged as mispelled (but not "bk").

Glad to hear that cocoAspell is now working for you.
