I use classical Hebrew for my work, and Pages will only display English characters even with a Hebrew font selected. If I cut and paste Hebrew characters from another document, as long as the font is supported, it will appear in Pages.  If I type it won't continue in Hebrew.  I have tried downloading several fonts, including those from professional societies, but the only way to get Hebrew in my document is to cut and paste.  Does anyone know how to fix this?  I use an older MacBook running OS 10.9.1.  I used to do my Hebrew work in Word, but it is no longer supported by Mac OS.

Just clarifying:
Pages '09 has bad support for Hebrew, Arabic etc but will accept pasted text.
Pages 5 has much better support but with bugs.
If you have columns they are in the wrong order ie Text starts in the left column and ends in the right column.
If you type English into Hebrew text it tends to fall in the wrong position eg instead of to the left of Hebrew punctuation it goes to the right.
As Tom recommends the only real solution on the Mac is Mellel.

btw Tell Apple, they are amazingly slow to fix this running sore which has been broken since RtoL was supposedly introduced in OSX 10.2.3 over a decade ago.

  • I pasted several chapters from another document with endnotes into a book document with pre-existing endnotes.  Since I have numerous pages of the same endnotes and Pages software is uber slow.  What do I  do?

    How do to combine documents both with endnotes?  When I tried, I got multiple copies of the same endnotes and very slow word processing.  thanks

    If you are wondering why you are not getting any responses, it is because you have vented a complaint without any details that make any sense or give anyone something to work on.
    If you want help, I suggest actually detailing what has happened, with versions of software etc. Anything that would let us assist.
    As a start I am guessing that you have not really got the hang of "How it all works". Firstly download the Pages09_UserGuide.pdf from under the Help menu. Read that and view the Video Tutorials in the same place. A good addition would be the iWork 09 Missing manual book and something to help you learn how to use your Mac.

    Using Azul media player app on my ipad  Apple tv will only display sound but not video from movies.  Any ideas on a fix.  I set mirroring to on but it still does not display video.  It will display photos and video recorded from my iphone.

    Here are the steps for AirPlay:
    Before starting Azul from your (running iOS 5.x/6.x) home screen where have have all your apps we need to turn on mirroring
    On your iPhone 4S/5 or iPad 2 or 3, double-click the Home  Button to view your recently-used apps.
    Swipe all the way to the right to until you see the  icon.
    Note: If the icon does not appear, go to the "If AirPlay Mirroring is not visible or available on your mobile iOS device" section.
    Tap the  icon to see the list of available AirPlay devices.
    Enable AirPlay Mirroring in this menu by tapping on an available Apple TV, then sliding the Mirroring slider to ON.
    Now you should be seeing your iPad/iPhone on your TV.
    Start up Azul now and using the settings icon on the top right corner go to the option that say "TV out" ON.
    When you do that you will see an Orange screen
    Now click "Done" and play the video you want to watch and it will AirPlay

  • When the update to support LTE will be released for Claro in the Dominican Republic?

    Claro in the Dominican Republic has launched LTE (since yesterday) and proceeded to sell or give the 4G LTE Sim cards so the users can have the service. I went over, got my new sim card and inserted in my Iphone 5 (A1428), and said to my self "I'm good to go". Turns out I wasn't. Unfortunately, I could not get it working. I even moved around the city to see where I could get 4G coverage.
    When I called customer service to argue about the lack of coverage and to discuss that this may be a scam from the company. The customer service person told me to go to settings>cellular> to toggle Enable LTE, and I replied that I did not have that option. Then the customer service clerk argued that I did not have an updated Device. My iphone 5 IOS version is 7.1.2.
    After doing some research while on the phone with the customer service representative (it was a 45 min long call) I had to agree with him that maybe apple has to "released" or "enabled"  the service for this specific carrier, just like it happened in Colombia when the LTE was introduced.
    Currently there are 3 companies (Tricom, Orange, and now Claro) offering 4G LTE in the Dominican Republic and None are listed in the 4G LTE availability per device per country according to apple.  https://www.apple.com/iphone/LTE/.
    So my question is: When the update to support LTE will be released for Claro in the Dominican Republic? (it would be great if an apple employee could get involve in this thread, or escalated it to who can do something about it.)

    FelipeV
    Let me tell you something: no one is saying go and do something illegal to enable this feature on your phone and no one is reporting any confidential information; the purpose of this thread is to clarify some points:
    The LTE Network for Claro DO is real, is functional and is not a Scam
    The LTE Network works with compatible devices except iPhones, not by decision of the carrier but the manufacturer.
    About that the date that when will be available is not a confirmed date, it's an estimate based on previous releases in other countries and information that I received from inside Claro, not a speculation (find the definition). Of course Claro hasn't confirmed because, like other says, is apple decisions and not their (you don't have to be a genius to figure that out).
    Forums are to express yourself freely about a specific topic, and to give your point of view whether you agree or disagree with something, but when you do be polite and do it with respect and not with arrogance as you just did hinting others are stupid and do not know what they are doing. Take an advice from some one with a little bit of experience, you don't know when you will need some help.
    Have a good night.

  • When opening a pdf document in Adobe Reader the font of the original document is changed....It becomes a mix of the original font and a new different font. How can i fix this

    When opening a pdf document in Adobe Reader the font of the original document is changed....It becomes a mix of the original font and a new different font. How can i fix this

    This issue occurs with most of the PDFs that I open up. I am using the latest version of adobe reader on my windows based machine and it is a general PDF. I saw a similar post online stating that if you look at the fonts used in the document and it doesn't say (Embedded) next to it, then Adobe Reader will try to pull the font(s) from your computer and if it doesn't find that font then it will replace it which makes it look funny.

  • "Reader" will only display a PDF for one second, then suts down the PDF.

    I recently had an automatic update to "Reader" and now "Reader" will only display a PDF for about one second, then shuts down the PDF.  This happens to all PDFs no matter what the scource.  I am running Windows 7.  What do I need to do to correct the situation.  (Yes -- I deleted "Reader" from my computer, the re-installed it.  Didn't help.)

    Go to C/Programs/Adobe/Reader 11/Reader.
    Look for a file named eula.exe (or just eula).
    Double click it.
    Accept the license agreement.
    Reader should work fine from there.

    Hello!, my name is jan and i am using lightroom 2 for many years. I have an original set-up disk with a 24 digit serial number. I had never problems wih installation of lightroom. suddenly lightroom refuses to start when I try to from a picture i have taken with my nikon D500 and transferred to WINDOWS 8.1.  i have tried to re-install lightroom : the procedure asks for the serieal number , but refuses to accept the number that always worked. PLEASE help!!  jan

    If you are certain you have the right serial number, there really isn't much we can help you with here. You might try downloading and installing the last version of Lightroom 2. It will be the trial version, but when the trial screen appears there is an option to indicate that you have a serial number. Incidentally, Lightroom serial numbers start with the first four digits being 1160.

    Not Charge
    - See:      
    iPod touch: Hardware troubleshooting
    iPhone and iPod touch: Charging the battery
    - Try another cable. (is this what you meant by charger?)
    - Try another charging source
    - Inspect the dock connector on the iPod for bent or missing contacts, foreign material, corroded contacts, broken, missing or cracked plastic.
    - Make an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store.

  • I want to use Mac Mail for my work email address, which containts multiple outbound options (i.e. hr@, me@ etc). Is there a way to set up Mac Mail to have an account with multiple outbound addresses rather than adding in multiple accounts?

    This sounds like the age old problem with keychain & Safari. I don't know of a way to solve it without using something like 1Password.
    The iOS app has it's own built in browser, so it has more control over what gets autofilled. Safari on OS X has an 1Password extension that handles account selection & autofill etc.
    Keychain is great in principle, but it quickly falls down when you need tight integration with many ID's & different use cases (work, home etc).
    I'd suggest you submit feedback to Apple about your thoughts. I did so years ago about this issue & this is how far we have come (back to the point where me.com synced passwords) :^)
    http://apple.com/feedback/macosx.html
    Other tools like lastpass or keypassx may also help if you want to truly segregate password storage, but that doesn't fix autofill, the way around that issue is to dedicate one browser for work.

  • Pages will only display the first page of text.

    Pages will only display the first page of text. New pages are created as usual but blank and pages are visible through quick views. Reinstalling does not fix the problem, I don't know if it is an issue with settings. Pages v 4.1 on OS 10.7.4. Running on new macbook with retina.
    This is apparently a retina issue. Update hopefully soon

    You have not said but it sounds like you are using a Macbook pro with retina display.
    Pages is exhibiting all sorts of problems with the Retina display which Apple is supposedly working on.

    Writelady,
    I do not know of any such option. I don't think that it is even possible at this time, however it doesn't mean that maybe sometime in the future Apple or someone else will make a way to do such as your request.
    I do however think that you should let Apple know your opinion if you have not done such yet. You can give them product feedback at the following link. https://www.apple.com/feedback/safari.html
    I hope that this helps,
