Trying to type a report, but I cannot figure out how to auto-cap the first letter of each sentence. Does anyone know how to?

    It depends on the application you're using.

    In Pages,

    Pages>Preferences>Auto-Correction>Fix Capitalization

    would work.

    I'm using Pages '09 Version 4.3 on Mavericks.

    Not in Pages 5 under Mavericks. There's no Auto-Correction tab in Pages preferences anymore. The Auto-correct tab in system preferences does not include an option to fix capitalization.

    It seems the feature has been removed from OSX Maverick/new Pages - can that really be true? The auto-correct feature is necessary, and I don't get why suddenly Pages should not be able to do that??

    It turns out that Pages 5 has a much smaller feature set than previous versions of Pages. Most observers opine that this was a result of making OS X Pages and iOS Pages feature-comparable (it being easier to pull features from the OS X version than add them to the iOS version). There's a lot of discussion of this over on the Pages forum on this same site.

     

    If you installed Pages 5 as an update of Pages '09, the installer should have saved '09 in a subfolder of Applications. If you bought (or were given) Pages 5 without previously having an earlier version, you'll have only 5.
