    Although I am sort of happy to see some slight autocorrect in Pages '06, it thinks that the word "may" is ALWAYS the month regardless of where it is in the sentence. So when I say "I may do that sometime" or any other sentence with may in it, it becomes capitalized. However, it's not worth shutting off autocorrect over, it's just something I noticed.

    I noticed that too, report it to apple through their feedback, the more they see this problem the more likely we'll get an update in a couple months.

    Do you have "fix capitalization" selected in the preferences?

    Yes I do. And I will keep it selected since it helps if I miss a capitalization at the beginning of a sentence.

    Autocorrect certainly isn't perfect, I would much rather it put a line under what it thought was wrong and I can tell it what is wrong and isn't. I don't see how you or Apple could do much change with this if Autocorrect is on, because how will the computer know which "may" you meant? So they should just make it put a line under it and the user can fix it at their on will.

    I hate autocorrect. I hate it! I really, really hate it!! :mad:

    I haven't tried Pages yet, but I'm sad to hear that it has autocorrect.
