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 has been gutted — Avoid this software!

UPDATE 6.2 June 2017. I have pretty much given up on Pages but should note that this version represents a significant step forward with (imprefectly impletmented) linked text boxes. 3 years too late, but hey . . . Still many things missing that were available in Pages 09 (4.3):

- No “facing pages,” i.e., ability to have left/right headers and footers. This makes books & booklets impossible
- No native mail merge (there is a cumbersome 3rd party app)
- No non-contiguous text selection
- CRIPPLED find/replace (for example, you can’t find/replace straight quotes with smart quotes—really.)
- You cannot print comments.
- clumsy implementation of word count. Instead of being able to see word/page count at a glance, ythere is a little bubble that obsciures some of your text that reports word count. You need to click to see page count.
-Linking textboxes seems to work only in one direction,: it imore primitive than version 4.3

Still, an improvement after the garbage versions of 5.xx-6.1. ]I give it 2 stars.

Very User Friendly and Affordable

I use this app for 95% of all my document needs. It doesn’t have as many bells and whistles as the Microsoft Word but it does have all the tools you’ll need 95% of the time. (It even has text highlighting which microsoft word for mac doesn’t have.). It’s also super easy to use, I typically never find my self searching for a tool for more than 10 seconds. I love it!
