Customer Reviews

Thoroughly Unimpressed

The updates just keep getting worse and worse… I’m a student that uses this software to write notes, and I don’t know about you but looking at a screen of black and white is NOT beneficial for studying. This new update prevents me from colour coating the text. The colour box says the colour change has been made, however it remains black. Since I don’t have any other option, I need to open a new document and paste previously coloured text into it so I can go back and use them to colour coat. This is a great waste of time but unfortunately studying off of black and white would be an even greater waste.

And that’s just at the top of my list of things I’m unhappy about with this software.
If improvements aren’t made by September, I’m investing in Word. Time to step it up.

Big Problems!

Ever since I installed the new Pages, I have been having problems opening documents. I keep getting a message telling me I cant open the document until I install the updated Pages (!) and directing me to the App Store, where, of course, it tells me I have installed the updated Pages! This is sporadic and happens whether I try to open through Pages or through Finder, and whether I am trying to open old documents, or new ones I have created since I updated Pages. Pretty frustrating when you are using documents for working! (You can open them if you right click and choose open with Pages 5.2, which I just learned through a chat with Apple Support, as I was getting desperate!)

Need lots of improvement

How about giving us the option to add an image to a footer and header? All of my documents made with the previous version are useless now and had to resort to using Word. Not happy with that. Please fix it!
