Ok for basic word processing.

I have been using this for a year or more. It is ok for basic word processing. Also documents can be formatted beautifuly. However there are a host of problems which reduce usability, especially when when one uses it extensively.
1. There is no way one can arrange templates as one wishes. There is no option to create template folders. This is disadvantageous as I typically have about 60 different templates.
2. In the finder the date created reflects the date the template was created(for user created templates), and not when the file was created.
3. There is no easy way to date stamp your documents - There is a provision to update the date in your templates, so when a document is created, it is saved with the appropiate date. However when one opens up the document again even for viewing, it again updates the date to the date when the document is viewed. This is highly inconvenient.

The cursor is unpredictable while editing in Tamil

There must be a bug. while writing in Tamil no problem. But when I edit the document making changes here and there the cursor is unpredictable. When I move the cursor from one place to another place using touch pad the cursor graphically move to the desired place. But when start typing the cursor imedietly move to the previous place and few letters or words previously typed is automatically entered along with new characters. It does not happen always but often. This makes editing document painful. Please correct it.

Userfriendly word processing

I have been using this for the last two year for making all my projects and research work. I never felt the need of using microsoft world since I started using pages. But more features should be added to it in order to make pages a great substitute for microsoft word.
