Geek Tip: Completing A Word In TextEdit or Pages

Do you tend to use TextEdit or Pages as your main document creator? If so, you've got to give this useful geek tip a try. The next time you are writing a difficult word just hit 'Esc' and a drop-down box will pop-up with various word suggestions. Highlight whichever spelling version is the most appropriate and hit 'Tab' to finish spelling your word. Definitely much quicker than using spell-check! Thanks Mac Blogspot for this helpful tip!

Do you know a great shortcut or tip you think geeksugar readers should know? Share it in our 'How To' Help - Guide To All Things Geeky group,


I know that this long list looks scary, but trust me, once you get the hang of it, it'll be a snap the second time around.

  1. First of all, join the 'How To' Help - Guide To All Things Geeky
  2. Click "Create and Share!" on the left hand side
  3. Choose "Blog"
  4. Give your photo a Title
  5. Leave the category as "general"
  6. Change the channel to "technology and gadgets"
  7. Add keyword(s) (for example mine for this photo was "Geek tip")
  8. Click on the "Add Image" link below the "body" box
  9. A popup window will happen - click on "Browse" to find your image on your computer
  10. Once you have the image chosen, click "Submit"
  11. The popup will show you your image, choose size: "normal" - if you want, you can give it a title (which will show up as a caption)
  12. Click "Insert" and the popup will go away
  13. Your "body" box will now have some text in it. Leave it as is. If you want to add some text before the picture telling me why you think this person is geeky, do it before the code that has appeared.
