Compatibility for medical, scientific writing lags
While I really appreciate the layout elements of Pages (compared to Word, which is a mess when trying to layout pictures and diagrams with text), Pages always suffers when new versions come out or when new versions of plug-ins or interdependent programs come out. It was always my understanding that Macintosh was the hardware of choice for academics and publication. I am an academic and I’ve used macs faithfully since the very beginning. However, I’m plagued by this decision because I use adjunct programs for bibliography and scientific referencing (ex. EndNote program) when I do my writing because these programs take seasons… if not years… to catch up to version upgrades of Pages. So what’s the point? Why can’t I get both: layout and bibliography?? Why do I have to go back to Word to get the bibliography but at the same time lose all possibility of integrating figures and diagrams with my technical writing? I tried calling EndNote and Apple about these compatibility lags, and they both blame each other for lagging behind…
Still needs vertical alignment and non-contiguous text selection
This is a good update which has added two good features. 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.
Can’t open doc I made a few days ago
Generally I like the program, but…
I created a document about 5 days ago. I’m going to a meeting today, so I opened up Pages to print it out. I got the error message that I need a new version of Pages to be able to open the document. I’m using precisely the same version that created the document. I go to the on-line store, find the app and hit “update.” The little progress animation just spins and spins. It’s been spinning for a half hour. Okay, I tried to open it using “Preview.” No dice. “Text Edit,” no dice. Microsoft Word, Simple Text, all useless. Finally I opened it in Pages on my iphone and was able to print it. What if I didn’t have an iphone?
This is a horrible, horrible problem. Fix it. It’s the problem with a lot of “subscription model” software, which I hate. Of course “Pages” is free, but if it locks me out every time it updates, it’s going to cost me A LOT. I now don’t feel secure using Pages.
It’s still spinning.
