I like it

Ana Claudia Cunha

I was having problems with Word, as it kept crashing, slowing my mac down, and was just not working for me, so I decided to give Pages another try. It does take some time to figure out how everything works if you’ve used word ever since computers were a thing. I do have to say it seems a bit less practical than Word for certain things, but for other, I have found myself being more practical. Since it does take a couple of days to get used to it, it might seem like it doesn’t compare to Word in the beginning, which is why I gave up on it a couple of times. It was when word crashed and didn’t save my extensive nursing school notes that I finally gave up on it. Pages has worked well, it looks simple, it does everything Word does (that i ever used), it takes up less storage space on my mac, and it hasn’t slowed my mac down or crashed yet. So I give it my approval :D I officially took the next step and have deleted office from my computer ✊
There is one thing I wish it would do that it doesn’t (or maybe it does and I havent figured it out): I wish I could add preset bullets and lists so that they would be available in future documents without having to save templates. Same goes for Styles.
I look forward to seeing future updates as I’ve been reading reviews and people seem to have the same complaints: that the earlier version was better. If I already like it now, I can’t imagine what it was like before. Would be nice to see this super practical app of the past resurface.

Still needs vertical alignment and non-contiguous text selection

NapoleonIV

6.3 was a good update which added two good features, and I am glad that 6.3.1 has been made available to those of us who have not yet upgraded to High Sierra. However, in order for pages to be a real wordprocessor, it needs to bring back non-contiguous text selection, and it needs to support the alignment of horizontally input text along the vertical axis so that text can be centered in both dimensions.. 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. I am glad that book marks were added a few versions back, but at the moment footnotes cannot be bookmarked and therefore cannot be linked to. 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.

Nice Facade - fails at the actual work

Christopher P

My latest attempt to migrate off of MS Word to Pages is a disappointing failure. This app looks *so pretty* and lists lots of capabilities, but who wants to spend their time identifying bugs, searching support pages, trying workarounds?? When working with a 30+ page document and using Sections, the application would seemingly re-write the Section breaks randomly, making a complete mess of headers and footers in the process. I carefully recreated a new document suspecting the previous one was corrupted. Same annoying, frustrating result. I just want to write my documents. Instead I spend my time trying to figure out if I did something wrong, or if the app is doing it. The app is doing it! Besides this, it seems to just give up and crash occasionally for no apparent reason. Autosave and versioning is nice, when it works, but I lost a couple of important pages in one crash. Gone. And no folks, the iPad version isn’t any better or any more stable! I tried to use it instead. Different issues, but same crashing. People may say, “What do you want? It’s free!!” Free?? My time is worth more than this. I want a stable app that doesn’t trash my work. I want a stable app that I can depend on and trust. I want the kind of quality I came to expect from Apple (and Claris) twenty years ago. Where is it? Wake up, Apple!!
