    I am new to Mac, and have a MacBook Pro with pages 08 installed. I have noticed two thing regarding Pages which are concerning.

    1) The spell check has stopped working completely.
    - I deleted the preference file and restarted Pages
    - The language in Inspector IS set to English

    2) There are weird horizontal lines showing up all over my documents as I type. NO CLUE!

    Thanks, in advance, for all your help. Hope to hear from somebody soon. =)

    enable spelling and proofreading in the Edit menu.

    does it look like lines of scrambled graphics just along the foreground window? your graphics card might be on the way out. sit tight and if it gets worse take it to Apple. do a hardware test by booting into the grey install DVD while holding D to be safe.
