Change text capitalization in Pages on Mac
You can set Pages to automatically capitalize words at the beginning of sentences. You can also quickly make selected text all uppercase or lowercase, or format text as a title, with the first letter of each word capitalized.
Capitalize sentences automatically
Choose Pages > Preferences (from the Pages menu at the top of your screen).
Click Auto-Correction at the top of the preferences window.
In the Spelling section, select the checkbox next to “Capitalize words automatically.”
This setting applies only to Pages, and not to other applications on your Mac.
Select the text you want to change, or click where you want to type new text.
To change all of the text in a text box or table cell, select the text box or table cell.
In the Format sidebar, click the Style button near the top.
If the text is in a text box, table, or shape, first click the Text tab at the top of the sidebar, then click the Style button.
In the Font section, click , then click the Capitalization pop-up menu and choose an option:
None: The text is left as you entered it, with no changes.
All Caps: All text is capitalized at the same height.
Small Caps: All text is capitalized with larger capitals for uppercase letters.
Title Case: The first letter of each word (except for prepositions, articles, and conjunctions) is capitalized—for example, Seven Wonders of the World.
Start Case: The first letter of each word is capitalized—for example, Seven Wonders Of The World.
