Themis, I had all sorts of trouble with CocoAspell, a worthy endeavor that has outlived its usefulness. I did install it and it sort of worked idiosyncratically. It’s badly out of date unfortunately. And it shows. I gave up on it at least a year ago, before Monterey and my M1 Mac came along. I don’t even want to think how CocoAspell would fare in the new environment.
Consider all the time you’re wasting trying to get CocoAspell to work. Not worth it.
Best wishes, Raúl
