comment Shortcut to revert autocorrect change
The problem with all these suggestions is that (1) they imply you are watching what you type; (2) that you type slowly. If you are used to looking at other reference material or typing fast, you get way ahead of this "see the x" process.

comment Disable automatic “overview scan” in Image Capture
This answer was downgraded. In fact, it gave me the answer. I was wondering why for many years I never got the overview scan; then started getting it. The answer was because I always had "Document Feeder" set, as I usually use that feature. However, even if you want the flatbed, you can still have Document Feeder set, and it will still scan from the flatbed if that is where the document is.

comment Disable automatic “overview scan” in Image Capture
My experience is that the overview scan started with Yosemite. Since 2009 when I started with Apple, it did not occur. That is, I was not aware of this irksome, wasteful annoyance, which provides zero benefit. Only with recent upgrades did I see it. This is with a Brother MFC-8440.

comment Can I disable auto-correction of a single word on OS X?
The only thing that works for me are one of these two annoying procedures: (1) take my hand off the keyboard, move it to the mouse and position the cursor to the "X" and click; (2) backup and change the word back to the correct spelling. The program then seems to understand that it should not attempt to change the word. It simply underlines it with the squiggly red underline.

comment In Mail, Cmd-Opt-Ctrl-F does something unexpected
As I said above, it lets me assign it and does not give a yellow triangle. But it does not work. I understand that it "should" present the small yellow triangle as you say. It should, but it does not. Whether Cmd-Opt-Ctrl-F is assigned or not assigned, sending that combo does the same thing, which is to move to a specific mail item. It is as though that mail item added the shortcut to the system, telling the system to "give me the focus". If I could post screen shots or screencasts, then I could show you.

comment In Mail, Cmd-Opt-Ctrl-F does something unexpected
Cmd-Opt-Ctrl-F can be assigned. It just does not work. Instead it repositions to a specific email. It would be useful if there was a way of seeing what was assigned. For a long time I was able to use Cmd-Opt-Ctrl-L with a different app, but then suddenly, that stopped working and I cannot tell why. So it might be not specifically a Mail issue, but a more general system-wide issue of assignments. But the Shortcut assignment "should" say if there is a conflict, but it is not.
