After googling a bit I am worried that the last entry in its web site <http://cocoaspell.leuski.net> is from 12/2009. Also, it seems it can use only one dictionary at a time. Finally, as a long time (and very satisfied) user of Excalibur, over the years I compiled an extensive personal dictionary of "learned" words; my question is: Is it possible to use it directly, or somehow import it ?

Can those changes be made when TeXShop has already opened Example.tex or does one have to quite TeXShop before applying Excalibur? At what point are the changes to Example.tex saved?

The same source file can be open in TeXShop and spell checked in Excalibur at the same time. TeXShop will automatically pick up any changes that were made in the source file when you Save the file in Excalibur (or Save the file when you Quit Excalibur). It's all Apple Magic!
