I have to use Word because Pages lacks
I love the look of text in Pages, it’s beautiful. The resolution is sharp and the contrast amazing. It’s also easy to use and transfers pretty well into Word and other formats. However, I do a lot of content creation and it FRUSTRATES the heck out of me that I can’t view my content in a side-by-side view. I have a big, gorgeous Mac desktop and I bought it thinking I could view multiple pages as I used to do in Word and skim the overall length and layout, etc. of 2, 4, 6 pages at a time.
Now, I have to save it as a Word docx, open it in Word and do that multiple-page view. It’s a PAIN. I’ve learned Apple did away with this feature a few years ago and it’s a shame. I think I’m going to just stick with Word, despite it’s clunky look and interface because Pages woefully lacks in this area. And it seems like a simple thing to add.
There also seems to be no response from Apple on this. No update adding it or rationale as to why the change was made. I’m severely disappointed.
Every major update a major disappointment
I used to solely use Pages back when it was the 09 version, such a powerful app, great layout editor and so much potential. Always got excited with every announcement of updates, but since then, the app just got worse. The new version announced to be wriiten from ground up never got close to the old one. I’m almost giving up on the app since the last update to be Sierra compatible. I use Pages in 3-4 different languages, and MANY of the automatic text (like dates, time, footnote, etc) only appear or edit in my OS native language (English), tried changing International data and many other workarounds with absolutely no success. I already gave up using for work, since many important official documents started appearing with dates in English format (automatic fields) instead of the language they were originally created in previous versions. Consistency MUST always be FIRST if you wish to target bussiness, dear Cupertino Offices. Make iWork great again. :D
Pages used to be amazing. It was a powerful word processor that also let you do some low-level graphic design. You could make nice looking projects in Pages. Then they wanted to make a seemless experience between MacOS and iOS, so that took away many of the graphic design features. There are much better design programs out there, and I am all for streamlining a program to be one thing, but you have to be good at the one thing.
Pages is now frustrating to use. I’ve used it through most of Bachelors degree and all the way through my Masters. I had never even considered switching until the newest update. The auto-correct is infuriating. It is mispelling words and inserting characters in an attempt to “out-type” me! I spend way to much time back tracking to correct the spelling errors that are inserted by auto-correct. Most of the rest of the program functions the same, but this tweak to this feature has made Pages a hassle to use!
