New update is SOO good 5/5
By Energy Goddess 7
Absolute 5 stars. I’ve used pages for the last 4 years but this latest update is where it starts to compete with word or indesign for design of books and catalogs. This latest update is really good. I love the side by side page view - a feature I’ve wanted for a long time and it works so well, plus other new features that make pages really good for developing large documents. I recently developed a 60 page product catalog in pages and this new update really hit the mark on page formatting, header and foooter formatting, just so many small tweaks that make this extra robust for actual book development. Thank you Apple! Love this update!
On my PC I use Jarte freeware—is there a similar for use on Apple? 4/5
I use Jarte freewareon my Microsoft desktop. Perfect for straight text with no fuss, similar to what I used to get on a simple typewriter, which is all I need. Few bells or whistles, just quick text creation with a few simple formatiing capabilities. Is there such a program that I could use on my iMac? I have used Apple “Pages”, but it’s a bit clunky and has features that I don’t need and which just slow things down. Simple text with some formatting, pagination, is what I need—where is it for Apple?
Really good office software. Pages has led me away from MS Office, Java Open source, and even Corel. What more can be said.
No True Book Template 2/5
By Rustic Coconut
Unless a true book template is hiding?
The sections and whole document ‘stick’ together therefore when I attempt to have the first 3 pages without numbering and the actual book to have page numbers, it cannot be done ( or it is extremely difficult to figure out). I’ve scoured the internet and apple help forums, what works for others, doesn’t work for this user and apparently I’m not the only one with the issue. I’d really like the ease of a true book template.
Cover Idea no page number —> new section <— Flyleaf and so forth without the numbering —> new section <— Numbered pages (for a true book not just an EPUB book) —> new section <— Author Biography and Image pages without page numbers. I feel that the whole document should be able to be broken up into true sections that are editable and still within the same document. If there’s a solution, please lead the way.
PAGES 7.1 is still an ANNOYING word processor 2/5
Pages 7.1 is generally a well-designed app and does almost everything from basic word processing to multipage layout & design.
HOWEVER, the latest version has still not fixed any of the VERY IRRITATING PROBLEMS that make it a PAIN IN THE NECK to use.
First, the extremely annoying lag time before you can edit selected text, so you can't work fast while editing your writing. You have to pause after selecting text & wait a second or two before you can move selected text. While not a huge problem, it is annoying enough to make me want to find another word processor. PAGES is the only WP that has this irritating quirk.
Another pain in the neck about Pages is that when you save a file, it automatically labels it ‘Untitled’ If you already have an ‘Untitled’ document, Pages will ERASE & REPLACE it with the new Untitled document unless you stop what you’re doing and rename the file. This can be a BIG PROBLEM because important files can easily get erased accidentally. It also interrupts your workflow & train of thought to have to stop what you’re doing and rename each file. Again, not a huge problem but a big pain in the neck.
Also, the floating word-count bar is always in the way. Why can’t they just put it in a fixed place in the Inspector? Again, not a big problem, but very irritating.
Pages should take a page or two from the book of the extremely popular free Mac wrod processor, BEAN.
Bookmarks Are Back! Nearly Perfect! 4/5
UPDATED FOR 7.1: I’ve rated Pages 1 star ever since the release of the new Pages, and have been using Pages ’09 until this version, for one reason: The lack of bookmark support. Well, good news: BOOKMARK SUPPORT IS BACK!
The last time I reviewed Pages, bookmark support had just been reinstantiated, but using the appliction proved perilously slow—so much so that I actually didn’t upgrade my documents, despite the fact that bookmark support was the only thing I was waiting for to upgrade. Since my review, Apple tech support contacted me, and I was able to send them my error logs so they could see what was wrong. I’m pleased to report that with this update, those slowing issues have COMPLETELY vanished. Pages 7.1 works just as fast as the old Pages, if not faster.
There is ONE last lingering issue regarding bookmarks that I would love to see addressed in a future update.
When you add a bookmark to a document, you have two things: (1) a section of text (or what have you) that acts as the bookmark; and (2) a hyperlink (or several) elsewhere in the document that link to that bookmark. In Pages 4.3, you highlight a section of text, go to the Bookmark tab in the Inspector, and click the plus button. Now it’s a Bookmark. Then you hightlight a different section of text, go to the Hyperlink tab in the Inspector, and check the “Enable as hyperlink” option, at which point in time you can point it to an external url, an email message, a Pages document, or a Bookmark. Once you’ve enabled it as a hyperlink to a Bookmark, ALL you have to do is click on the text, and zip! You’re taken straight to the Bookmark. If you want to edit it in future, you use the same tabs in the Inspector to edit it.
In Pages 6 this changed.
Once you have your Bookmark, and you have your hyperlink, EVERY SINGLE TIME you click on the hyperlink, a dialogue box pops up. The dialogue box asks you if you want to (a) go to the Bookmark, or (b) edit the hyperlink.
EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.
To put this in perspective, I maintain a large number of dictionaries, and have hyperlinks linking to sections of the dictionaries by letter (so in the table of contents, if you click on A, it goes to the A words; B, it goes to the B words, etc.). In a single session, I click on 4-5 hyperlinks, easily—sometimes many more than that. In comparing Pages 4.3 to Pages 7.1, one click is better than two. Always.
The way I see it, the designers of this UI believe that EVERY time you click on a hyperlink that would send you to a Bookmark location, there is a 50/50 chance you actually want to edit the hyperlink instead. This makes zero sense. The whole point of going to the trouble of adding hyperlinks to a document is to save you time using the document. Forcing this extra step does nothing but add time. Perhaps I’m using hyperlinks wrong, but once I have them set, I never edit them. There’s really no need. And if I ever did need to edit them, I would expect and not be surprised for it to take a little extra work. That’s the sacrifice one makes for the functional utility of Bookmarks.
So, as it stands, I am happy to give Pages 7.1 four stars, but Pages developers, if you want that fifth star from me, I BEG YOU: Make Bookmark hyperlinks one click links. I have no idea if there are others that are clamoring for the extra step (and if there are, my hat is off to you, and I will quietly muddle my way through it), but if it’s neither here nor there, please consider changing it.
Thank you for all your work on the new Pages thus far!
Incredibly frustrating 2/5
It’s so difficult and sometimes impossible to do simple word processing tasks in Pages. Want two columns followd by one column? Nope; can’t do that on the same page. Want to change the margins on certain templates? Nope. Want to alphabetize columns in a table? Nope; not without messing up the entire table. Paste WITHOUT matching style? Not entirely. Find next occurrence of a style? Nope. Very few keyboard shortcuts available, too.
Much better 4/5
By Georgie L.
Somewhere in the 6.something iterations, a lot of functionality was removed or somehow made less…well, functional. I moved to using MS Publisher. It worked ok. It got the job done.
I decided to try Pages for something that wasn’t going well in Publisher and noticed the missing thing that bothered me the most (linking text boxes over different pages of a document) had returned. YAY! I poked around some more and found that Pages was back to being my preferred program.
I don’t know about line numbering. This is not something I use.
If the 6.somethings had you frustrated, give the 7.somethings a try.
Apple should be ashamed. 1/5
Pages is an awful application, and most likely just so Apple can say “me too! we have an office suite!”. Go buy a real application and use that instead.
It crashes often. Selection is very poor - no easy way to select multiple elements. You can’t adjust the height of an element any more by the top handle - only the bottom. Rotation will adjust text box sizes, even though it shouldn’t. Often a blank last page is created with no way to remove it. It pretends to be a word processor and a publisher, but fails at both. Avoid.
Software doersn’t update.
It has a highschool level dictionary.
By Lukes da best
Its very confusing and terrible!!!!!!!!!!
PLEASE!!! bring back the grab thumbnail copy/paste/move option in Pages! 3/5
I put off using the new pages (I’d been using ’09 because of the horror stories I’d heard), but figured I’d better get used to it because one day ’09 won’t be supported and I didn’t want to be caught in the situation of having to learn the new pages without a fallback plan. Well, it’s s l o w l y growing on me, but I want to know why Apple decided to remove the good things in ’09? Currently, my biggest complaint is the inability to copy multiple thumbnails in a document and either move them or just copy them to move to a new document. I can’t even copy one thumbnail to start a new document! I have to highlight the parts on the document, copy and paste, hoping the formatting doesn’t get screwed up. And I have a lot of formatting! I used that feature All. The. Time!!
Frankly, I’ve never found the iPad version of pages and numbers to be user friendly (lack of fonts and formatting), and the idea of trying to make the pc version compatible with the iPad version was a bad idea, if you’re taking away capabilities. It should have worked the other way-improve the iPad to match my MacBook Pro.
6/18 update… I’ve been using the current version of Pages 7.0.1 and am not happy with the last update. I have many layers of tables, fonts, graphics in my wor and layering was not difficult until this last update. Now I get the spinny wheel of death frequently whether I’m editing or typing new text. It will e v e n t u a l l y stop spinning, but seriously… It’s wasting my time. Please fix it!!!
Like it pretty easy 5/5
Won’t update can no longer access Pages 1/5
This app won’t update and I can no longer access any of my documents!
WONT UPDATE 1/5
Im not sure if its my computer or this app, but mine will not update! I have an important document I need to get to but I cant because this stupid app wont update.I need to get to the writing but this app wont open it, so I cant get to it! I just really need help!!!!!
Best App You Will Ever Need, Unlike Microsoft Word 2010. 5/5
2 and a half years since ive been using pages, and A LONG TIME since i moved, witch i THINK was 3 years ago. I didnt know much about Macs back then. I mean, now, I am a pro, and i need to type a lot. Pages was the best choice, unlike Microsoft Word 2010. That kept on telling me
Product Introduction failed, VERY creepily, IN RED! That Made it even more creepy, but i HAD 2 use it.
Thank You For Being Better Than microsoft word 2010, and if Bill Gates Is Readin’ This, 😂 PLEASE GET AN UPDATE, EVEN FOR THE MICROSOFT LENOVO PERSIAN VERSION, WINDOWS 7 LAPTOP.
Pages updates 3/5
By pages man
Pages does have the bells and whisle like MS Word but I like how it is clean and easy to use. I tried to open word document in Pages but it missing some of those text style and the format sample the document written in. I notice there's a update for Pages but I cannot update it kept processing with no end to it. How long it take to update? Im using version 5.6.2 and operating system is El Capitan
APA nad MLA formats 3/5
By Vixie pie 16
I am frustrated that Pages does not have an APA or MLA template in the “Essay” section. Microsoft word has it but, then it does not save in my documents in a way that is easy to acsess and share. I am in college and need to type almost all of my papers in an APA or MLA format. I love my Macbook Pro, I just wish there was a better way to type my papers through Pages. I hope these formats will be added to Pages soon!
Grammar Issue 4/5
I’ve been using Pages for a while but I’ve had a recent grammar issue; Pages wants to correct my you’re into your when incorrect. I want this issue fixed, please, Apple, fix it. This issue is bad enough in society, we don’t need it as a problem in our software too.
What’s happening? 2/5
I LOVE Pages! I find this to be the easiest application to edit anything I need, but lately, it has been not starting or crushing. I hope you fix it fast!
Has one major problem 1/5
The app is nice, but the problem is my phone battery drains so fast when using it.
Love it- now my default program 5/5
By Red Grange
I now use Pages for about everything I can, and in the office, convert files for those poor colleagues who are still stuck with Microsoft clunkware. Although Keynote is perhaps my all-time favorite software app for creating most anything (I can avoid having to use Adobe products and Powerpoint as well as use Ketnote for PDF creation and simple graphic projects), Pages is so flawless and syncs between my Macs, iPads, and iPhone.
Wish Apple had a solution for Photoshop and Illustrator, especially for the iPad Pro, but that is another topic.
Everything is so ART! 5/5
Everything is so ART! Apple not give us just a tool, but a true art product.
I wote a review yesterday stating the the new Pages app was broken. My appologies. There were changes that have made if better. I simply was using the old method for inserting page numbers.
So I state with Five Stars. This new app is great. Thank you.
Newest Update 3/5
We installed the newest update and now Pages won’t work in split page view.
Pages used to be so good 2/5
Each time Pages is redesigned, it becomes more cumbersome, less intuitive, harder to use. It used to be that it was relatively simple to design beautiful documents. But as Apple began to try to redesign Pages so that it worked on IOS the same as on Mac, it had become increasignly difficult to use. I am shopping for a replacement. Maybe Powerpoint.
Nice word processor 5/5
I’ve started using this word processor since I switched from Windows 7, and I’ve gotten use to it pretty quickly. It has nearly all of the same functionality that other processors such as Open Office and Microsoft Word has. For me personally, I like Apple Pages more than Microsoft Word and other word processors because it gives me more control over the format of my documents without doing all of the formatting behind-the-scenes automatically. It also has a lot cleaner UI and a good selection of fonts to chose from when doing creative work. I can also export to almost any format, which comes in handy for the writing classes that I take. Apple Pages is a great word processor and if you’re looking for something new and different, I recommend giving it a try!
Still needs vertical alignment and non-contiguous text selection 1/5
Unfortunately I have had to lower my rating to 1 star for the following reasons:
1. Headers and footer are supposed to have three fields. Some of my documents only have one and I see no way to change this.
3. Navigating a document using bookmarks whilst the comments pane is open is still impossible. Slecting a book mark will move the document to that place, but then it will jumpto a seemingly random comment.
3. There is no way to move styles between documents which preserves the style names. The import styles funciton needs to be brought back.
4. Pages has become extremey slow and freezes regularly.
7 was a good update which added useful features, and 7.0.1 fixed a number of bugs which were making it dififuclt for me to use pages.
The following deficiencies still persist: Pages needs to bring back non-contiguous text selection, and it needs to support the alignment of horizontally input text along the vertical axis so that text can be centered in both dimensions. It would also be nice if selecting a page from the thumbnail pane did not deslect whatever one had selected on another page, as this would make text slection over many pages easier. The following bug persists: when I move the cursor to the right side of the screen in full screen mode, which causes the format pane to appear, it is difficult to select a paragraph style from the dropdown menu because it only remains visible for as long as I click. instead it in necessary to double click. However, when I select “Inspector, Format”, I am able to click and select a style. Please fix this. Keep the updates coming! I now have faith that apple is actually going to make this into a usable product.
Avoid. Pages is not capable as a word processor 2/5
Pages is prettier than some of it’s counterparts, and that’s the best I can say. To give scope, I have all possible power and “focus” drains off (dictation: off, autocorrect: off, wifi and bluetooth: off, etc.) and yet pages only allows one character per second (or slower) as I type. One character or less per second means about 12 words a minute. EVEN I type faster than that. It is impossible to create a simple paragraph. You’ll find yourself waiting after every sentence. Talk about destroying your flow. I’ve spent 2 hours just now trying to write 2 simple pages. That should have taken me 30 minutes. Tops. I am hating pages.
I am reminded why I have tested it over the years but never switched over. I’ve been testing pages for 15 years. It’s no better now than it’s ever been.
Pages is utter garbage. How can apple even put this in the word processing category? It barely processes words. Typing in pages is like teaching a 3 year old how to spell. Free is not good enough to use this garbage. Don’t do it.
If you are simply editing a doc, fine. But if you need to create text - DO IT SOMEWHERE ELSE. The pages experience is miserable.
It’s a great word processor, but very hard to use 3/5
By Commands don't work at all.
Hello. I am reviewing this app to make sure it is easier to use for everyone. I have been using it to design a number of things (newspapers and reports) and have found it very hard to use. With numerous hidden menus, tabs, and other things that are just too complicated to read and to use. I use Word now because everything is laid out right in front of you, and you can even customize some aspects of it. Please Apple, if you can make Pages easier to use for people who maybe aren’t professional writers or designers, I think more people would like to use it. Thank you.
Pages no longer works 1/5
As soon as I loaded the new Pages app (5-8-2018), its icon appeared on my desktop with a “forbidden” symbol over it. I clicked on it anyway, and I got the message: "You can’t open the application “Pages.app” because it is not supported on this type of Mac.’ I’m running High Sierra version 10.13.4. My MacBook Pro is a 15-inch from mid-2015. I wish I had known that Pages would no longer work with my Mac because I have several documents that I require access to. Apple, please respond.
Good but some minor problems 3/5
I don’t know it is just me or somebody else also have the same problem. My pages won’t self-correct the spelling even when I’ve selected the “correct spelling automatically” button. And when there are updates available for Pages, I update it. After the updates, the Pages will be “good”(which means that the auto-correction works) in the first couple of hours, but will later become “not functioning”(the auto-correction doesn’t work) again. This is so weird because I was just typing on Pages and suddenly I found that the auto-correction not working again. I don’t know it is the bugs in Pages itself, or there’s problems on my Mac.
Pages, another case of “Apple knows best" 1/5
I’ve been a loyal Mac guy for the past 15 years, but Apple is really going out of its way to alienate its user-base. Other word processors offer so many more options for originality. For example, I tried a simple task in Pages—making a birthday card. So I open up the card format, struggled through the cryptic windows to try to modify what Apple has decided is the best format, and then finally determine that there is no way to rotate an image layer so it appears correctly on a two-sided page with a fold; i.e. a card! Apparently, Apple has promulgated that images must be added to cards with captions, and that disapbles the ability to rotate it—Apple has spoken!!!
It took me 30 minutes to create a card in Pages—the same project in Word took less than 5. The next time I’m going to use Word, and spend the next 25 minutes researching switching back to PCs.
Is anyone from Apple listening?
Can’t perform basic editing tasks 2/5
I was excited to see an update to Pages today. Alas, you STILL CANNOT SELECT NON-CONTIGUOUS TEXT. Like, seriously, Apple? What?! It’s one of the most basic document editing tasks, and I can’t do it in Pages. If I have 50 words I want to put in italics, I have to do each one separately. I can’t just hold CTRL and click on each word, then italicize. So stupid and the reason I rarely use Pages. Funnily enough, I CAN do it in Notes. You cannot bring that functionality back to Pages? Pages used to have this functionality, along with nearly 100 other features Pages doesn’t do anymore. Disabled your own software. Awesome. Thanks, Apple. I guess I shouldn’t complain because Pages is free these days, right? Sorry, I’m still complaining. Why can’t you IMPROVE the software to suit your customers’ ACTUAL needs?
STILL NO SELECTING NON-CONTIGUOUS TEXT. Grrrrr. So many of us have requested it since the version I last rated. It’s not like the developers don’t know we want this feature back! Come on, Apple! STEP IT UP!
Good but switching to 2-page view doesn’t work while in fullscreen 4/5
The newest update is really nice and brings back a lot of the features that were missing. There’s one annoying issue though: you can only switch from the one-page view to the two-page view when the app isn’t in fullscreen. I have to exit fullscreen mode, switch to two-page view, and put it back in fullscreen to do this, and it’s annoying since i like to have pages open on a large second monitor. Fix this please!
Not for large, serious, writing projects — try Word 2/5
What comprises a book? Say, ten or twelve lengthy chapters, each chapter a complete, technical essay of 40-50 pages with several hundred footnotes. Pages will handle neither a techncal essay nor, therefore, chapters of a book for those who write such essays or books. Pages is too cutesy. Too fussy. Too built towards pamphlets or blogs or high school papers. Fine. But Pages is a distant and poor second to Word, which itself was a second to the most excellent WordPerfect, with which I wrote several books.
Do NOT delete your old version!! 1/5
So you’re telling me I can’t find/replace a paragraph mark? I can't find/format text in less than 3 keystrokes/clicks? Can’t select multiple items? Are you kidding me over here?!?!
Today marks the fourth (and last) time I’ve tried desperately to switch to Pages 5, and the fourth time I’m moving back.
I suggest Apple hires a team of research monkeys to write the next version. Guaranteed it will be better.
Still Crashes 2/5
I thought that because there was an update for this, it might correct the issue I was previously having with repeated crashing, but this one isn’t working either. I’ve tried almost everything to get this to work, I even *miraculously* got in contact with Apple support, but they didn’t offer much help. I’m not sure how else to try and fix this problem, but if I’m having an issue, I know I can’t be the only one out there! I hope Apple can make the adjustments and get this to work, because it’s really a great program when it’s firing on all cylinders. Apple:Pls fix!
Mostly Functional, but Crappy, and I Don’t Trust It 3/5
What a joke. The most basic things are lacking. There’s no draft view. There are literally NO views besides Page Layout, which makes use difficult for my particular needs. There’s no obvious save button; I have to go into options to do that, and I save a LOT. I like spacing to be visible, but on here it’s so bold it’s more visible than the text. The limited formatting options are spread unnecessarily on a sidebar half the size again of the screen. And the only way (after much research to figure even this much out) of knowing what page number you’re working on at any given time is to keep another sidebar open showing thumbnails of all the pages. It looks busy and distracting and is hard to layer windows with. Not to mention that it’s hunt and guess with scrolling, since there’s no indication of number there, either. I work on documents that are hundreds of pages; that really slows things down sometimes. If I want to minimize the gaps between pages, I try getting rid of margins temporarily. This just means it alternates between squashing 2 lines together, or leaving a gap every other page. It’s a pain to look at whatever I do. I also loathe the lack of buttons on the scroll bar. You can’t just drag it up or down a couple lines when the document is long. (And now I’ve read many reviews about updates deleting files. I have thousands of pages of writing that I can’t even conceive of losing. This makes me extra paranoid to keep using the application.) The only way I would like this ‘word processor’ is if I had never used anything else, and didn’t know or care about the risk of losing my work.
If I had a choice, I would go back to Microsoft Word 2008. I liked that best. I only switched because it wouldn’t work with the new Retina display. The newer version doesn’t have buttons on the scroll bar, only just added page numbers to scrolling, etc. I’d at least go back to MS Word 2016, if save were working. For now, I’m trying to make do with Pages, because there doesn’t seem to be anything else. At least until I do more research. But for something I thought was a basic application of Apple, it’s sure an unrefined piece of crap…
I don’t know if I’m more fed up with Apple or Microsoft. I have an iPod, iPhone, iPad, and MacBook Pro. Happened gradually; I used to be a PC owner. I have always clung to MS Word, however. I’m 33 and have used it since first grade. I can only see downhill trends in so many of Apple’s tech choices in the last few years, though. It was a close call, my sticking with them when I updated my computer last year. When I first started using their stuff, I loved it. Now their staff is largely untrained to the point of disbelief, and products aren’t working.
I’ve never had such an issue before; the newest version of Microsoft Word made for Mac will no longer save files. Pretty basic. Turns out the problem has been going on for 2 years. Still no fix. I’ve been to Apple, Microsoft, and other tech experts. I’ve been told from all angles that there’s no answer but to hope for a fix someday. It was fine for almost a year, until I ran updates. Now it’s useless. And, to salt the wound, malware somehow got installed in the process of stuff Apple/MS did, or told me to do. (And I’ve tried uninstalling and reinstalling both Word and the iOS, among other things.)
Seriously. Get it together, Apple and Microsoft, both! How can you both have failed this badly after all this time?!
Stop Letting stuff not work because there is an update available 1/5
I have about 35 minutes to complete a deadline for a class and 30 of that is driving. So it is a HUGE inconveniece when Pages on my YEAR OLD mac wont support the pages documents on my 6 month old mac book and I have to update pages in order for it to work. I have terrible wifi, so the update is not the fastest thing in the world. So seriously. Are y’all just incapable in converting pages documents so that it fits all versions?? Oh no, you just dont want to because you guys can make more money if people are forced to update.
Updates keep changing functionality 3/5
Why is it every time apple updates this app, they take away functionality? In thumbnail view, I can no longer select a specific page. It used to be if i scrolled through the thumbnails, I could select a page and the document would switch to that page , but with the new update, no longer. Get it together Apple, and stop loosing functionality in order to add it somewhere else.
Duplex (double-sided) printing 4/5
I’m just getting used to Pages, having worked with WordPerfect and Word for years. It’s not a hard transition. However, I have a printer that will allow double-sided printing, but that feature in print in Pages is “greyed” out. Is there some way to be able to print duplex/double-sided?
Version 7.0: better. Apple should now focus on user convenience 3/5
UPDATE 4/13/18 Page 7.0 is a notable step forward. FINALLY, facing pages has returned (and the ability to format different left/ight headers & footers). Major step forward (or rather, backwards towards what Pages ’09 was).
Apple should now concetrate on making Pages more user friendly. Basic code for most of this must already exist:
-Add back from Pages ’09 ability to find/replace formatting.
-Add back from Page ’09 ability to have font variations in display text for hyperlinks (e.g., Roman & italic in display text for link)
-Add back from Pages ’09 abilitity to select non-contiguous text
-Add back from Pages ’09 ability to select columnar text
-Add back from Pages ‘09 mail merge and data fields
-Add back from Pages ’09 ability to have headers & footers be independent, e.g., have header hidden but not footer on first page
-Add ability to print comments (not sure if Pages ’09 had that)
-Add ability to print selected text.
-Allow users to set rulers on by default
Fails at converting to Word 1/5
I love the clean layout of Pagers and simple controls. The interface is amazing compared to MSW. However, anything I type into this and export, or copy/paste into word, the text breaks apart. All of my page breaks are out of order, references are misaligned, and sometimes the font isn’t transferred. I don’t know what the deal is, but every time Apple updates something, another thing breaks. It is better for me to type if FocusWriter and copy/paste from there. That at least keeps my text and font alignments. If a free app can do that, why can’t Apple?
Love Apple Pages. Just two more things PLEASE 4/5
I love Apple Pages. I have just two requests: 1] Please provide an ability to lay text vertically. 2] The Apple website says there are 70 templates.I definately do not have 70. I think I have 15. Please add a few more business-type template. Thank you :P
Solicitud respecto de la funcion locucion. 5/5
Estimados, tengo una sola solicitud para ustedes y es respecto de la funcion de locucion, agradeceria que le crearan comandos manuales o me indicaran si existen porque no logre encontrarlos, lo otro que la locucion al ser detenida se tome como una pausa y reinicie desde el principio a menos que el usuario así lo quiera.
Para mis estudios esto representa una gran herramienta, pero creo que con estas pequeñas modificaciones seria aun mas eficiente toda vez que si se para la locucion y se reinicia parte desde el principio del texto, claro al seleccionar el texto que quiero que se lea se soluciona el problema, pero pensando en la simplesa que caracteriza los productos Apple considero que acceder a mi solicitud seria un beneficio mutuo.
muchas gracias por todo, por lo demas esta aplicacion es excelente!
Pretty but clumsy 3/5
It all you want to do is to type a letter, Pages will do the job. But it does a poor job with even rather elementary functions, such as section breaks, find-and-replace, setting text in headers, and making columns have even lengths. A mediocrity.
Flaws in new update 2/5
By Megan Amanda Ashley
The new update does not allow you to have two different pages documents on split view. Love using this application but would love to have this feature back.
cheap imitation of MS Word... 1/5
I really hate this version of iwork. it's not backwards compatible. any document that's opened and updated works and looks like crap. there is no way to change the header so that the first page is the only one that gets a header.
this version of iwork is the worst idea apple has come up with for word processing. it makes fat documents that eat up gobs of megabytes and storage. it's slow to respond and has a whole crap load of bugs that have not been ironed out. apple does an amazing job with putting out glitz, glamor, sparkly glitter and dazling commercials about their products. but their products don't live up to the hype. they are also much more spendy and expensive than windows based programs that do the same thing, but are easier to work and actually function far better.
apple has been sending out updates for the mac desktop owners. with every update my computer is getting slower and slower, and buggier and buggier. It now takes my mac almost 7 minutes just to boot up, and things aren't loaded properly when its done booting. It takes over 4 minutes to launch firefox and 5 minutes for my email to launch for the first time every single day. With every new software update my computer gets slower and slower. They are trying to force me into buying a new machine, which I won't do...
Excellent Product and easy to use 5/5

Apple hardware is excellent and applications as well. I love Pages because it’s stable product and very easy to use. You need to spend some in the beginning but it pays the dividend at the end.
