    Is there an autocorrect option like in MSWord for Pages........with MS Word, you can type and it will autocorrect your spelling for you, but in pages it just red underlines and doesnt correct, is there a setting i need to enable??

    thanks guys

    The problem with autocorrect is that it doesn't always select the correct word. Also, you may be using a word correctly, but it isn't in the dictionary.

    That may be, but it is still useful. Is there an option in the new pages?

    Go to Pages> Preferences> Auto-Correction then check "Symbol and text substitution" and you can add you own spelling corrections for specific errors you make a lot. If you just want Pages to correct spelling errors with the first option on the list you need to check "Automatically use spell checker suggestions."

    Is there a way to do this from within the document? --like, you're typing, you make a spelling error, the autocheck catches it, and you'd like it to auto-correct to one of the suggested spellings? Do you have to go through the whole Preferences > Auto Correction > Add process?
