This program actually makes me want to scream. The constant removal of functionality, the default settings that cannot be changed (such as text wrapping) and clunky and hard to access subsubsubmenus make this program almost impossible to use as anything other than a very basic word processor. If you’re typing an essay, great! If not, be ready to want to throw your computer through a window. I am only using it as I can’t afford my adobe subscription at the moment, as I would much rather use indesign.

Seriously, Apple, STOP removing functionality from your programs. It’s completely ridiculous. Macs used to be for creative professionals, but they are being so dumbed down that I am very seriously considering not getting a mac for my next computer. I have only ever owned Mac computers for my entire life, but the lack of usability and functionality in Pages is indicitive of the way all Mac programs and computers are going - they are being dumbed down for mass popularity rather than improved to continually support the audience that made mac the powerhouse it is today. I’m not the first creative professional that I know of who feels this way, and if things don’t change I certainly won’t be the last.

Getting better, but...


I switched to Pages over Word several years ago because of what seemed (at the time, anyway) to allow for more creativity. As Apple updates Pages, it’ll be good to add functions that leverage this strength, and make accessing the options easier and easier. The intuitiveness of Word’s toolbar is superior, although Pages has more and better functions. For artists, bloggers, advertisers, etc., Pages will probably keep Pages, and will need to tolerate a clunky interface that buries important options behind many, many clicks.

To illustrate: When I create PDF documents for presentations, I highlight (Pages uses the language of “text background”) sections in different colours, as a mental cue that each piece has a different purpose (e.g., introduction, story, argument, main point, etc.). To do so, I can’t highlight different sections without closing and opening the colour chooser again and again for each section I want to colour-correct. In other words, I want to be able to keep the coour chooser open, select a chunk of text, click on the colour I want it to be, and do it again for each different section. I actually can’t do that. I need to select the text, open the colour chooser, click on the colour, then close the chooser. Then I have to select another chunk of text, open the colour chooser, click on the colour I want, and close it again. It’s really way more complicated than it needs to be. The “Text Background” needs to be a tool I can add to my toolbar at the top. If Apple does this, and can fix this bug so that I don’t have to keep closing-and-reopening the colour chooser each time, it’d change everything. The fact that the “text background” option is three clicks down is already a fail. This, as well as columns, bullets, numbers, etc., etc., should all be one-click functions after the user has selected the the text. Let’s do this!

The most recent update’s inclusion of 500 shapes is interesting. Not something I imagine I’ll use; it also seems weird since Apple users already have access to all the deffault emoticons by hitting control+command+space, and there are way more than 500 of these.


Babu a planche

Functions disappearing, dumbing down of the app, simple things like starting page count at 1 on the second page are infuriatingly difficult to do.

I have to switch to Microsoft word since some simple tasks are hidden or non-existent.

Step your game up Pages.
