Take the time to figure it out - it’s there

It isn't obvious Pages is as powerful or even better than Microsoft Word - it does a great job of hiding the features that its competitor lacks. Master Objects was an eye-opener for me; items that appear in the same place on every page - think headed paper. I had to Google how to do watermarks and, this is where it falls down - it doesn't have the online help it needs. Let's have videos, sections on feature-focus and common how-tos in the help.

What's unclear in the instructions is that the features in Pages map onto both the web and iOS versions so, remote editing is feature-complete.

iCloud is hopeless in an enterprise environment but, it's great for personal use (as long as you re-direct your documents folder to iCloud) - as a veteran of Google Docs and OneDrive, I can confirm that, whilst each has its merits, Pages on iCloud has the most feature-complete web and iOS offering.

Last up is file compatibility - today I created a document with embedded PDF vector images placed edge-to-edge. I couldn't figure out how to do that in Word but, when I exported to Word, the images were in the correct position - bizarre but true.

Take the time to immerse yourself in Pages; figure out how before giving up - if nothing else it's as much fun as completing any adventure game.

Some great features but needs to be improved

I love how easy pages makes laying out and designing documents. The line tool lets me ensure that all the images I use are centered and the ability to download fonts/ the font selection in general is wonderful and has allowed me to be very creative. I have 2 main issues, though:

1) You cannot send a pages document by email. This means that I must save 2 copies of everything. One in pages in order to edit and one in PDF or word to send out. Incredibly frustrating, especially when some pages features can’t be transferred to word.

2) I’ve found that in documents where I use a lot of pictures, the text and pictures gets jumbled when I edit. I wish there was a way to lock pictures/text in place and only insert another page so that I don’t have to go through extensive documents to fix the layout.

I used to LOVE this program, now I may have to go to Word

I won’t repeat the many gripes mestioned earlier…but Apple has detroyed so many applications that used to be great. Pages is on that list. I still miss the features of earler versions of Pages, and also iMovie, iPhoto…etc. There must be a better way to add enhancements without destroying, in one fell swoop, the good parts of a program that were already there. I feel as though these applications have been given a lobotomy. I frequently end up stuck because I can no longer can do what I used to be able to do in an easy and elegant way.

Most recently, after upgrading to Pages 5.6.2, when I open a new document and work on it, and then try to open it again, I get the message "The file “name of file here” couldn’t be opened”. No further explanation, and I can’t open the file! Please Apple, read these reviews.
