The language has to be applied to selected text.
It is like telling the computer, this is bold or blue or Times Roman. You are telling it to treat this as English or French or Spanish.
Also if you have text copied and pasted from somewhere else such as Word or the Internet that will retain whatever it had before and you have to apply Pages' language settings to it.

OK, I understand this. Why then does my spell check that used to work, not work? I thought it may have something to do with the language selection drop down. Have not done anything different to the computer or to Pages. Even when I select a misspelled word, it does not indicate that it is misspelled or give me a suggestion.
Not sure what has happened or how to fix it.

I have tried that, but it does not pick up the misspellings. It's just not logical and that's what's driving me crazy. Have restarted the computers and relaunched the application.
Thanks for all your suggestions.
