  1. To jump to the start or end of a document, press Command up or down arrow, up for the start, down for the end.

  2. To insert a page break, choose edit > insert > page break. I'm not sure if there's a keyboard shortcut for this out of the box, but you can add your own shortcut, as described in this guide.

  3. To search for text in a document, interact with the text body and press VO F. Type your text string and press return, and Voiceover focus should jump to it.


Hi Tyler and everyone,

Hi Maria. You need to go into the edit menu. Push control, option, M that takes you into the menu bar. right Arrow over a few times, until you hear Edit. Push return. Then, down arrow to insert, push return again. Then when you hear page brake, push return. reutnr, means the same thing as enter. Hope that helps.

Goodmroning all,
many thanks for your answers.
I would have another question I really don't what I did, but, when I installated a dicctionnary in portoguese, I changed something in preferences, keyboard, and now, when I write in other language different to portuguese, although I write right, my Mac tell me each word "Bad written", I would like to change it in order to avoid it, please, someone could tell me the steeps that I should do?, if afterwards whenn I finish, I want to correct the ortographi, how shoould I do?. And if I write in differnet languages?. I think that unfortunatelly,Mac doesn't have the possibility to change the keyboard language in a fast way as Yos, I think it would be reallly great that Apple thought about it, for next updates.
Many thanks again, and have a nice day and a nice Startweek.
