Override a strange dictionary quirk in Pages '08
Authored by: jksellors on Aug 18, '07 05:21:55AM

Pages seems to use the System Preferences/International/Languages tab to determine the default document dictionary.
Under the System Preferences/International/Languages tab only the English was enabled on my computer.
I enabled the US English, Canadian English and British English in the Edit List pull down menu.
I then dragged the Canadian English to the top of the list.
After re-logging in and opening Pages— Canadian English was the default language.
If you change the Pages Inspector/Text/More tab Languages pull-down to Australian English and then File/Save as Template…/ with a meaningful name, then you can open this template and it will use Australian English by default.
You can also choose this template to open by default when you open the Pages application.
