    How do you get to Text Edit from Pages?

        I think he means he’d like these options in Pages–and so would I. Can’t find anything like this there, however. Am I missing something?

          They aren’t in Pages, you are right. But you can do most of them in other ways. So it depends on the specific function. Substitutions can be controlled in the System Preferences and used in Pages.

            Sounds like an upcoming MacMost video to me!

    Great video. Can you do all of this in Pages?

      Some, in different ways. Which task in particular?

    Wow, very helpful! Why are there straight quotes in the first place? Why not just always use the curly quotes? It looks much better. Thanks, Gary!
