I ran into the same problem and the author suggested I remove the
Spelling.pkg, aspell.pkg and AspellEnglishDictionary.pkg receipts
from /Library/Receipts/ before installing the Intel version of
cocoAspell 2.0.4. It appears that I do, in fact, have the Intel
versions of the preference pane and aspell installed but, unlike
others that have had success with this method, I still can't get it to
find spelling errors. (Yes, I did choose the proper dictionary, etc.,
in the Show Spelling and Grammar (Cmd-:) pane in TeXShop [it's
universal so once you set it there all applications will use---maybe
not so smart].
At one time I used Excalibur, which works very well, but opening
another application, even with a macro, doesn't feel right.
I've finally resorted to using Apple's spell checker and save command
names, etc., that come up. After a bit of use it is getting pretty
good at skipping over command names, etc., but it will never be perfect.
