Set the spelling language in Pages
Authored by: hamarkus on Feb 09, '05 02:08:33PM

Most text editor (and layout programs) allow you to use the language like a style attribute. In contrast, the spellchecker in OS X, although working globally in all (Cocoa) apps, which is a nice feature, so far you could only set the language globally but independently from the system language.

It seems like Pages (and maybe Keynote 2) offer more customisation in that sense (but take their default from the system language and not from the language set for the global spellchecker).

My favourite feature of the OS X spellchecker however is the 'Multilingual' setting. It allows you to write in something like ten different languages and only if a word does not exist in any of them it gets marked (without constantly having to change the language setting). This catches basically all typos (though a couple of False Friends will be overlooked).

Using Unicode Hebrew in Pages?
Authored by: jweaks on Feb 09, '05 02:43:07PM
I have a couple specific questions:
  • Is the spell checking available for Unicode Right-to-Left Hebrew?
  • Is anyone using Pages for doing Right to left language?
  • Is it capable of it?

Using Unicode Hebrew in Pages?

To me this is funny because the logic of your questions is bottom-to-top. You're asking: can it be done, is anyone doing it, what about spell-checking?

I wish I knew :-)
