    Hi. I am a reasonably new mac user and new to these forums. I have just bought iwork 08 and love it, but have found one issue when using it in comparison to word on my old pc. I always used the shortcut of alt+f7 on a pc in order to go back to the last typo and open the box which suggests alternatives and then used the arrow keys and enter to correct the spelling. While typing, I found this a lot easier then using the mouse to right click on the typo. Is there any similar shortcut for iwork 08 as I am struggling to find one. Thanks.

    Not sure if this will help, but the spelling dialog box can be invoked with the keyboard shortcut of cmd-shift-colon. Also, keys can be programmed for all applications in the Keyboard & Mouse system preference. You might be able to create shortcut you like there.

    Thanks for your reply, but what I am after is something that opens up the drop down which would appear if you were to right click on the typo word in the document. Using the dialogue box still requires using the mouse to click on the correct word. If I'm typing I like to stay on the keyboard as much as possible without having to go to the mouse all the time. Also, as far as I can see, there is no menu item that controls this and so I don't think that I am able to create a shortcut through the keyboard and mouse preferences.
    Cheers.

    I don't use Word so I wasn't sure if this tip would help, but I thought I'd take a stab at it.
