We use Microsoft Lync as the chat application in my work place. Recently we migrated to using macs and I am seeing this problem which i didn't see on the windows version of lync which was the auto correction which is extremely annoying sometimes.

Does anyone how to turn off this auto correct feature on mac version of lync?

  1. Open up a chat window. It doesn't matter which one.
  2. Right-click in the text input field. Spelling and Grammar.
  3. Toggle Correct Spelling Automatically.

This appears to turn the option off for all chat windows.

Tested on Lync 14.0.4 for Mac.
