Applications :: Finding Spell Check Dictionary In Pages?

Sep 20, 2007

Long time power user of MS Word - giving Pages a serious try. SIX DAYS left on the trial offer.

Can't figure out the Spelling function -

Words that are clearly misspelled don't get a little red squiggle under them. And when I click "check spelling" some of these mistooks are ignored.

I have selected "check spelling as you type" but I have my doubts that it is working as I'm a horrible speller and it's not catching my goofs.

Can't find a place to set the dictionary.

I see Pogue has a Missing Manual for '08 coming in January, but I don't want to wait that long.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Add Vocabulary To Spell Check Dictionary?

Feb 27, 2012

I need to add knitting, crochet, and yarn/fiber vocabularly terms so spell check will stop "correcting" terms that are in point of fact spelled correctly. Where/how does one do this? I've been told to look for the LocalDictionary in Library in my account folder... but I don't *see* any Library folder, never mind a Spell or LocalDictionary folder anywhere. 

I'm using OS X 10.7.3 on a MacBook Pro.

Applications :: How To Spell Check On MS Office

Jun 14, 2010

I have the latest unofficial MS Office 2011 and all the words in my documents that are in English are underlined with a red color telling me to spell check. When I right click on the word, it gives me the suggested words in Turkish. I went under tools/language and change it back to English but it automatically changes back to Turkish or sometimes to Portuguese. I had this issue on the MS Office 2008 as well and I was wondering if anyone has any idea how to fix this.

Applications :: Using On Pages Spanish Spell Check?

Oct 18, 2007

I am trying pages '08 in hopes that it will be the long sought replacement for MS word. Only one problem so far - I do lots of writing in Spanish but there is no way to access the Spanish dictionary in my Pages spell checker. When I hit <spelling> and then <spelling> the spell dialog comes up ok but only in English and there is no dictionary button that will allow me to change languages. It is not a problem with the OS X speller because the dictionary and dialogs work fine in both Spanish and English in other programs such as Mellel, Word, and even in the '08 versions of Keynote and Numbers. I love everything else about it so far but this one quirk would make it impossible for me to give up Word. Any suggestions as to what might be the problem with Pages?

Applications :: Mac Mail/Spell Check Not Working?

Jan 21, 2009

I'm running Mac OS X (Version 10.5.6) on my PowerBook G4.

My Spell Check in Mail (3.5) hasn't been "Checking as I type," even tho that setting is checked. I've done everything from restarting mail to shutting down my system and completely restarting the computer. That normally works when I've had this problem in the past. Not this time.

What's IS happening, is that Mail is doing a red underline in the first word of every new line of my email messages, even when those words are spelled correctly. However, aside from underlining the first word of each line, other misspelled words -- in the body -- are not being caught.

Applications :: Spell Check Not Working In Word 2008?

Apr 7, 2010

My spell check is completely broken. It wont correct or highlight misspelled words. I cant even go into the spell check preferences (it's just grayed out). And there's no spell check item in the toolbar, or menu bar.

I came across this thread but the method explained there did not work for me. Does anyone know what could be wrong?

Applications :: Word 2008 Ignore/ignore All Spell Check?

Nov 17, 2009

When I am running spellcheck, sometimes I need to click on "ignore" and sometimes on "ignore all". If I click on "ignore" the first time and then move on to the second queried word "ignore" doesn't work. I have to click on "ignore all". Then the third time "ignore all" doesn't work and then I click on "ignore". So basically I have to alternate between the two options all of the time.

How To Enable Spell Check In Safari 5.1.3

Jun 7, 2012

Right clicking and going through through the grammar and spelling options, no combination seems to give me what I had in 10.6.8 namely a red underline underneath mispelled words and the ability to ignore that or right click it for suggestions and other options. Does this functionality still exist in Safari? It does in Mail, but I can't spell check anything I type in a forum with Safari like I used to.Safari 5.1.3 and OS 10.7.3

Mac Pro early 2009 2.26 dual quad , Mac OS X (10.7.4)

OS X :: Spell Check While Typing Not Working In Certain Programs?

Oct 28, 2008

For the past few weeks (maybe months) I've been experiencing a problem with my spell check while typing feature. Up until this evening I could even have it checked off in Adium, but after I downloaded the MacOSXUpdCombo10.5.5 file (something someone suggested in another thread) the spelling options are all greyed out completely. I have restarted Adium a few times to try to fix it to no avail.

The checker works fine in Safari, but when I use Adium it doesn't work. I found a thread on another site that suggested moving one of the Dictionary files to the desktop, and also holding option, command, p and r down at the same time. That second tip seemed to work a while ago, but since then I can't get it to work again.

I read somewhere that the spell check was messed up because of one of the recent apple updates. I feel like I've had it in other programs too I just can't think of them at the moment.

OS X :: System Wide Language Changes - Way To Add Spell Check

Feb 19, 2010

I regularly e-mail/chat back and forth with friends in the Netherlands and Germany, so I was wondering if there was a way for me to do a quick system wide language change that could spell-check for me. So, what are those little flags for on my Menu Bar? I have the Dutch, German, and American flags, but I don't notice any changes when I switch between the three.

OS X :: Spell Check Switches To French - Space & Semicolon

Nov 25, 2008

In one document in MS Word 2004, the language keeps reverting to French. I try resetting both the default language and the language choice as English (Tools > Language...), however, rather quickly it reverts back to French. This messes up the spell check. What can I do to keep it on English? (With a google search, I did find a 2005 post that mentions this as a systemic problem. But that forum didn't seem to offer a solution: [URL:....] Has this been settled elsewhere?)Second problem, perhaps related. MS Word automatically corrects some spelling as I type. However, in the document with the French problem, the text is being corrected in a weird way. It's not accepting a semi-colon ; next to a word. Instead, it inserts a space between the word and the semi-colon. What's that all about and how do I change it? Are these problems related?

Applications :: InDesign - Adding Words To Dictionary/custom Dictionary?

Jan 10, 2010

Is there a way to 'bulk' add new words to the InDesign dictionary? I do a lot of menus and a lot of the food terms come up as spelling mistakes.

I was wondering if there was a quicker way to customize the dictionary than telling the spell check to learn the words as I go. EG add one huge text file to the dictionary with all the words or something.
