Lost cap­i­tals

Mac Format - - APPLE TALK -

As a new ‘con­vert’ to the Mac, with a 5K Retina dis­play, early progress is en­cour­ag­ing and I find MacFor­mat quite help­ful – and, when not so help­ful, in­ter­est­ing! I have one prob­lem. In Pages and other text- us­ing apps I have not found a way to cap­i­talise the first let­ter a word in a new sen­tence or para­graph af­ter a full stop. This seems to be a de­fect with Yosemite which it would be great to sort out. Pre­vi­ously, with 12 years ex­pe­ri­ence of Mi­crosoft Word, it was al­ways pos­si­ble to cap­i­talise those first words, so I find this frus­trat­ing. Have you any thoughts or ideas?

Alan Stone­bridge says… Frus­trat­ingly, this used to be a fea­ture in the pre­vi­ous ver­sion of Pages. Ac­tu­ally, we’d like it to be a sys­temwide fea­ture, like the other spell­ing and gram­mar op­tions typ­i­cally avail­able in an app’s Edit menu. In its ab­sence, try Typ­ina­tor (about £18, er­go­nis.com), which pro­vides an auto-cap­i­tal­i­sa­tion fea­ture that we have tested in Pages, Mail and Tex­tEdit.
