Typing issue - Make option to add new page - Bugs need to be fixed


App is great and I use it for everything, but typing is sometimes very slow and inefficient and I would like an option to edit your work with a pencil tool like in Microsoft Word and the Notes app.

Also, it would be very helpful if I was able to add a page using the toolbar. I was very inefficient during art class, spending 20 minutes to add a new page to my document, but I couldn't. All I could do was add page breaks, which messed up my document. I then had to switch that document to Microsoft word and I don't want to do that ever again - Please add new page option in toolbar.

Also, another typing issue, when I type very close to the bottom of a document, usually in a template, it automatically pushes the screen view to the very bottom of the document, so my screen view goes lower, too low to see what I'm typing, which may be a tad bit higher and IT IS SO ANNOYING! PLEASE FIX.

Brilliantly simple yet capable word processor


I'm amazed by the power of Pages. I'm especially impressed by the facility that allows you to insert LaTeX maths expressions into a document, while maintaining the overall style.

I'm bewildered by the regent complaints about the way Pages names (??) and saves documents, and adds blank pages. These 'problems' are consequences of the user's decisions or their failure to understand how iCloud works - problems that can be fixed in minutes by glancing at the documentation! Very odd.

The bundled templates are beautifully designed and tremendously useful, especially if you're in a hurry.

😡Absolute nightmare to work with


I’ve used pages for years now to do all my programming, reports, newsletters, notices etc (I’m a teacher) but with the last few updates pages has become so hard to work with.

- I can’t add a blank page into my document between existing pages without entering down a thousand times, which messed with formatting of other text and images

- half the time my documents won’t open with error messages of document doesn’t exist or can’t access document.

- I can’t work offline on pages because documents created on the iPad (all of them) have now all been uploaded to the cloud (which it did without me wanting it to) and are now only accessible to edit when connected to internet, and therefore the cloud.

- no way to select multiple files to export at once to Dropbox (have to individually open each file and export)

I’m now left with the tedious task of exporting (individual files at a time) years and I do mean YEARS, of files to Dropbox so I can edit them in word.

I am starting out this year using my windows laptop to do all my work now as I refuse to use app. It is not friendly and usable anymore!!! Serious let down!! 😡
