Do you need a speller all the time?

Microsoft Office applications have a speller - a really good one nowadays. But for those other systems that don't have a speller, try TinySpell - it doesn't curvy underline all your words but it does raise an pop up window when it detects you hitting a space after a word.

Copying shape size in Visio

"Another, more civilized, way of doing this is to open a Size & Position window from the View menu. In this window, you can see the size and position properties of the selected shape. You can then select several shapes, and update their width or height by typing the required value into the box. In order to make those shapes the same as the one you want, you have to select it first so that its properties are shown in the window. Ah, but there is another problem. You can't just hit enter, the edit box recognizes the fact that no change was made and does nothing, you have to retype the value again to have the desired effect. Still it's better than nothing"
