What's New in Version 5.5.2
This update contains stability improvements and bug fixes.
Intelligence and Global insight!
Of course this program is dumb and doesn’t work, but why not use a bit of intelligence to see what is going on, instead of complaining, complaining, complaining, as if you can’t see the nose on your own face? Of course, I just continue to use version 4.3 ‘cause I like it, I’m used to it, and it works, that is if I want to use Pages at all! Years ago, “you know who" sat at the top of the money heap selling Office at huge profit. All everyone wanted to do was to knock them off their pedestals! It’s happened! Now “you know who" are eating humble pie, offering W*** for iOS for free on iPhone, all because of Apple’s innovative, industry leading proactive approach to EVERYTHING. Apache Open Open Office is a very competent product, offered completely free of charge. The digital device revolution ("smartphones" and “tablets”), led of course by none other than Apple, has shifted entirely the focus of our computing devices from top end desktop machines to top pocket at times children’s toys. Doesn’t this say it all? Stop whingeing, be thankful you have any number of great wordprocessors available for every need, and most of them free! Perhaps as Apple’s “Continuity” and “Handoff” functions mature (relatively new and very sophisticated programming), perhaps this program will too?
Stylish word processor
Although there have been afew negative reviews posted,Pages has been a good application for my needs which involve mainly essays or assignments with the occassional table of contents, data tables and inserting images. My needs maybe somewhat simple to other users and this maybe a reason for my more positive experience with Pages as I would not consider myself a proficient user of word processing applications.
I have found Pages to be quite intuitative, for example, to create a header, you move the cursor to the top of the page and three text boxes appear (left, centre and right alignment) to enter text for your header. I struggled with other word processing applications, finding them to be abit daunting and intimidating (possibly due to my lack of training) whereas Pages enabled me to concentrate on my writing, rather than the application and trying to figure out how to do things.
Very concerned about the motivation behind this product.
I have a suspicon that the “gift” of an amazing upgrade, is a demonstration of a business model designed to make us pay twice for a product. When I purchased my first MacBook four years ago, I paid extra for the iWorks suite. I was very happy because I could syncronise my documents with my iPad and iPhone. Then when my iPad adjusted to the next upgrade, I could no longer syncronise documents with the MacBook. Because I prepare on the MacBook and do my presentations using the iPad, this became very frustrating. So I upgraded the MacBook. While that fixed the connectivity, the loss of sentence capitalisation and auto caps for the word “i” was very inconvenient.
I had hoped Apple would correct this but no subsequent upgrade has done so. I am concerned that Apple will now produce a new and improved version for which users will have to pay. I do not want to have to pay for this product twice. I encourage all Apple users to question the motivation behind this.
