    Hi,

    Is there any way to change the default dictionary to UK English.?
    Checked out a couple of threads on this. But they dont seem to have a conclusion?

    I have managed to set the dictonary to UK english in Word.

    I don't have Pages but I'd assume that it works the same as the rest of OS X

    Get a document open then go up to the Edit menu, choose Spelling and tell it to use the British English dictionary. That should then apply across all Apple's apps unless Pages then disregards that.

    How do you do this in Pages 08?


    EDIT: Don't worry. From Pages help...

    To make sure that the correct language is selected, click Inspector in the toolbar, click the Text Inspector button, and then click More. Select a language from the Language pop-up menu.

    To do it round the OS, open System Preferences->International->Language->Edit List and choose British English, then set that :)
