Hello good people of the MacRumors Forums. I am creating a very simple table in Pages. It is a chart of the diatonic ratios. In other words simple fractions. First I had the problem where I would type 1/2 and auto-formatting would force it into Jan 2, 2008. Lame. BUT I found that I could trick Pages by typing 1 / 2 and it would then auto-format that into 1/2. I thought I was out of the woods. Then I typed the ratio for D in the first octave which is a ratio of 9/8 and it auto-formatted it into 1 1/8. There seems to be no way around this. I looked in Preferences and there is an Auto-Correction Preferences tab, but none of the options listed there are relevant. Please help! Pages is too clever for its own damn good.
