Why Is There A Blue Underline Under Text In OS X Lion?


Sometimes when I'm typing a dotted blue line appears under my text. I know the red line means I spelled a word wrong, but what's the dotted blue line for?

The dotted blue underline is an indicator that OS X Lion has autocorrected a word that you typed. If you right-click or control-click on the word, you can see what you originally typed before it was corrected.
