[OS X TeX] CocoAspell 2.1 vs 2.0.4 Dictionaries

I had a problem with using the new CocoAspell 2.1: it was flagging words as being misspelled although they were correct and the top choice in the substitution list was identical to the word in the document. It turns out that CocoAspell installs a later version of Aspell and the dictionaries need to be recompiled. The easiest way to do that is to remove the dictionary folder(s) from /Library/Application Support/cocoAspell/ and re-install (or remove them before installing CocoAspell 2.1 in the first place).

Also, the wording on the CocoAspell web site is careful now to state that 2.0.4 is for Panther->Tiger and 2.1 is for Leopard and Snow Leopard only. The statement about it being a beta release is also gone. See Anton Leuski's CocAspell web site, <http://cocoaspell.leuski.net/>.

Good Luck,
