I can confirm it doesn't work. Stickes seems to be doing something special with its windows - unlike normal application windows, they do not acquire focus when they become "uncovered", and without focus they cannot receive input.
Here's a simple experiment:
- Start Word. It will have focus.
- Start Notepad. Word will now lose focus, and you can type in Notepad.
- Minimize Notepad.
- Word will now have focus again, you don't have to click it before you can start typing in Word again.
Now if you try the same with Stickes instead of Word, you'll see that in step 4 after you minimize Notepad, you still cannot type in Stickies. You have to click one of the notes first. This is why when Echo tries to paste the clip, Stickies does not "get the message" (figuratively and literally both).Spell checking while editing simply produces an error pop-up that tells me 'No Spelling dictionaries are available...' On installing EE initially I chose English (UK) and un-ticked the other 2 languages. In the Spellchecker section in Preferences it showed 'Last Language' as being English (US). After using the separate spell-checker installer the Spellchecker section appears as in my screen-shot here - no 'LastLanguage' and no 'DictionaryPath'. Changing the 'DictionaryPath' to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Ethervane\Common\Spell" (which is where the English (UK).adm file is) makes no difference. It still doesn't work, with the same error as above.
The "DictionaryPath" option is only used to add a custom dictionary folder to other folders Echo already checks for dictionaries. It's OK to use it as you did, but it should not be necessary.
Please check if the UK dictionary (English (UK).adm) exists in any of the folders listed in "Database information". I have attached the UK dictionary to this message. You can unzip it and copy it into that folder, then restart Echo.
One more thing: did you select the UK dictionary in the list, in the editor dialog box? Since originally there were no dictionaries, the "last language" option is empty, and no dictionary is selected by default. If you click the list at the top of the dialog box, the UK dictionary should be listed there. Perhaps all you need to do is to select the dictionary in the list.
In the next release I'll make sure to pick a dictionary automatically if only one is available.-tranglos (March 02, 2012, 11:30 AM)
This still isn't working (other than manual method above). Likely to be fixed? New version...??
