All of a sudden my spellchecker has quit working. When I go to the inspector>text>more, the language keeps reverting to none. How do I get this to stay so the spellchecker will work. If I choose English, then go back to "check spelling", it reverts to none. Frustrating to say the least and it is happening both on the laptop and desktop computers.

 

Suggestions and thanks in advance.

    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.

    Most likely the text in question has its language set to "None".

     

    Click in your text and Select All (command a) then set the language to what you want.

    If you like send me the document.

     

    Click on my Blue Name. Just let me know what language to check and which words you think it is not catching.
