Still needs verticle alignment and non-contiguous text selection

This is a good update which fixed many problems, so I have raised my rating to 3 stars. However, in order for it to be a real wordprocessor, Pages needs to bring back non-contiguous text selection, and it needs to support vertical alignment. It would also be nice if selecting a page from the thumbnail pane did not deslect whatever one had selected on another page, as this would make text slection over many pages easier. The following bug persists: when I move the cursor to the right side of the screen in full screen mode, which causes the format pane to appear, it is difficult to select a paragraph style from the dropdown menu because it only remains visible for as long as I click. instead it in necessary to double click. However, whenI select “Inspector, Format”, I am able to click and select a style. Please fix this. Keep the updates coming! I now have faith that apple is actually going to make this into a usable product.

Pages 6.2 represents 1 step forward and 2 steps back

Pages 6.2 introduced linked text boxes and allows editing of super- and subscripts in the iOS version. This builds on the introduction of Latex and MathML formats for equation editing in 6.1 and suggests that we are moving back to the the outstanding, feature-rich characteristics of Pages 4.3. However, version 6.2 has broken Endnote citation formatting in which in text citations no longer follow the format chosen under the edit menu although the endnote Bibliography does. Come on Apple - you have a reputation for attention to detail which seems to have slipped with Pages. While pages remains the best application for creating documents that fluidly combine text and graphics on the Mac, it remains a frustrating struggle for many students and faculty in academia to produce technical documents using Pages. Just a little more attention to detail and meeting users’ needs would help enormously. Use us as your beta testers to determine whether releases are ready for primetime.

Constant Crashes post 6.2 update

Since updating to version 6.2 my pages application has become almost not possible to use. Any time I hightlight text and click the “comment” button, the document immediately crashes. I edit dozens of documents each week and need this function to work.

It would also be nice to be able to change comment balloon colors if the comments are made at different times the document is open. Right now if “change color” option is chosen, it changes all comment colors regardless of when they were made. I would like to be able to have Monday comments yellow, and Tuesday green as an example.
