Not reliable for work, OK for fun

Yariv Goldstein, Tel Aviv Israel

Being a Hebrew writer I need my machine to run a word processor that can handle Hebrew. Up until Pages 5 came out the solution was a windows virtual machine with MS office. When the 5 came out with its right to left support I purcahsed it and, trusting apple, started working solely on Pages without even installing windows (for the 1st time) on my new MBP retina.
I was dead wrong.
The week I was supposed to meet a deadline on 3 different projects that were written usind Pages, the program stopped reading its own documents, written on that very iteration.
Needless to say, this was not solved in time (if at all).
I love Apple hardwre and I dont see myself giving up my Macbook but as far as I am concerned, there really is no replacement for Microsoft for hebrew writers. I deleted pages and apple needs to go a long way and to prove their product beyond doubt for my to ever trust it for my business.

Very good, but still needs to improve


I found 2 things that bothers me a lot.
1. In “Notes”, when i want to start a bullet list, i just press ‘Option’ + * and then hit space, and it automaticlly start a bullet list.
In “Pages” however, there is no keyboard shortcut to start a bullet list. there is for numbers list, and for ‘note taking’ (-), but not for bullets.
That means i have to drag my mouse to the “Format” section every time i want to start it. This is very annoying when you are typing fast and trying to get some work done.

2. The writing direction have improved massivley with the last update. However, it is still not perfect. When im starting the sentence in Hebrew, in starts from RTL like it should.
If i want to continue my paragraph, but i want to start the sentece with English and still continue to type from RTL, it wont let me. It starts from LTR because it thinks i want to write in English.
This is very annoying as well, becuse i have to press the ‘Reverse the direction of text” key with my mouse to fix it every time.

The spell check is not working in Hebrew as well BTW, but exepts these 3 problems, im enjoying Pages a lot.

Lacking so much functionality


It’s amazing how much functionality this word processing program lacks. For instance, you can’t create a hyperlink to another document on your computer, only to a webpage or email address. Seriously? You can’t create links to other documents?
Also, there doesn’t seem to be things like auto-capitalizing the first word of new sentences.
Also, if you need to share the document with someone without Pages it’s rather complicated.
I’m using Pages for documents that I know will only stay on my machine. For everything else I use Word for Mac, which feels totally stupid, but until Apple fix their word processor, I’ve got no choice.
