No borderless printing

I can't say the 'improvements' to Pages should be classed as such.

Pages updated when I installed El Capitan and now it is useless for borderless printing.

Having gone through everything in Pages and changed every setting I could find I have been to the store and also spoken to a number of Apple Tech Support guys on the phone who have tried in vain to get this working, it simply won't have it.

Pages was my 'go to' piece of software for pretty much everything and now I have to save and print from Preview if I want to print borderless. I thought Apple Mac's were all about simplicity but there are so many changes in Pages that simply either don't work or don't work as well as they used to that it has become a rather annoying piece of software now.

Please, could someone at least sort out the reason we can't print borderless from Pages, this is a vital part of the programme for the work I do.

There's an old saying "If it ain't broke, don't fix it' and it was never more true than in the case of Pages and this latest update.

Half-baked, could be so much better

Pages is slick; it looks slick, it acts slick - what it does it does very very well. But the amount of things it leaves out that even the most basic word-processing app can do is shameful and just stinks (rightly or wrongly) of Apple not being bothered.

Just some things that I would love to appear in the (hopefully imminent) future…
* Built in keyboard shortcuts for many of the common tasks.
* Bringing back the old “two up” feature, allowing users to view their manuscript as if it were a book with facing pages.
* More control over automatically generated “contents” area.

Oh, and one more thing… trying to google “Pages” is a nightmare - giving it a fancy name would at least distinguish “Pages” the app from “pages” the things you are editing IN Pages!

Gets Worse with Each “Update"

Try adding overlay arrows and textboxes to the standard text and then export the file to RTFD format. Do you end up with an RTFD version of the original pages file……No you don’t. The overlay will appear anywhere but where you put it on the original pages doc. Don’t waste my time Apple.
If you want pages purely as a standard word processing software it will do the job, but not as well as many other word processing apps for Mac that are available such as Mellel or Nisus Writer.
