    When you have auto-correction turned on, each time it suggests a word and you reject it by tapping on the suggestion, it adds the word you typed to the dictionary. You may have to do it a few times before it gives the new word priority though.

    To select all text, tap-hold anywhere on the text. When the menu appears choose Select All.

    I already have that part set properly. I need to gain access to the dictionary of PAGES. When I paste into pages items with science terms everything is underlined. I need to add these items so they don't reflect incorrect. I need to get into the PAGES dictionary

    I don't know of anyway to do it. Not the English dictionary, anyway. I gather from the manual you can edit the Japanese and Chinese dictionary.

    It is probably possible with jailbreaking. You might ask under the iPad Hacking forum if no one chimes in here.

    This is a very poor app if u cannot add words to the dictionary. Apple should be embarrassed.

    iPad app "pages". Need help

    I cannot believe that this stupid app doesn't allow you to add words to the dictionary. I work in clinical pharmaceuticals. Every word I type practically is not in this minimal dictionary. My documents look like one red line. Tell me there is a way to gain access to the dictionary

    It's not the app. It's the system. The dictionary is system wide and the settings are the same. That's because the iPad really doesn't have room for every app to load and use it's own dictionary. At least Apple isn't going to add them individually to each of it's apps.

    Full blown, mature, computer programs are always going to have more features than tablet apps. Both because of the space available and because most of them have been around long enough to go through several generations of feature upgrades.

    That said, yes, Apple should add some dictionary editing abilities to the system dictionary.

    Please Apple, if you are listening.
