Customer Reviews

Bookmarks Are STILL NOT Supported (4th Review)

I’ve reviewed Pages 5 three times, and the fourth review is going to say the same thing. I use Pages for all my documents, but the primary use is with a set of language dictionaries I maintain for the shows I work on (Game of Thrones, Defiance, Dominion, The 100, etc.). These dictionaries make extensive use of in-document links called bookmarks. They allow one to quickly navigate through the document. More than that, the functionality is retained if one exports the Pages document to .pdf, meaning that even those without Pages can make use of the functionality I add to my documents using bookmarks. Bookmarks were removed in the first version of Pages 5, and have yet to be reinstated. I simply cannot use Pages without bookmark functionality.

I install Pages 5 to check with each update, and each time I’ve been disappointed. I’m getting tremendously frustrated. If bookmark functionality isn’t returned and Pages 4 is broken by some future OS update, I’m going to have to make a permanent switch to Google Drive. I really, really don’t want to do that.

feckless app

Remember how Microsoft would “innovate for us” so you didn’t have to bother? WIth the latest Pages update, Apple seems to be challenging MS for that contemptible mantle. V4 (Pages‘09) users beware, surely someday you won’t be able to run Pages’09, or perhaps upgrade your extensive collection of ’09 docs to current Pages, except on old hardware and software. V5 users beware, this is word doc lite and Apple is deaf to years of sustained intense commentary from its deep user base. (The list of crippled or expunged ’09 features is long, as well as features never provided in ’09. You can find many examples in the other negative reviews, or search the net.) This loss of functionality and failure to provide advanced features is a marketing decision. And given Apple's deaf ear to their user base, how can you avoid concluding that they don’t seem to care whatsoever that your productivity suffers for it.

Sadly, you have only one choice, abandon Pages for serious document preparation, use MS Word or some other app. For the most part, Pages is relegated to frilly stuff.

Used to be good...

Back in the day, the AppleWorks word processor was actually pretty solid. Pages was still decent and had some nice touches, but they've been gradually removing features to create a "simpler" experience. So basically, if you never want any unusual features, hey, nice experience. But while any given one of those features is unlikely to be useful to you, the chances that you'll end up wishing the program had at least some feature that was present in old versions but is gone now are pretty good. This is okay for really simple stuff; if you need to do complicated things, you're better off with a more serious program. And that's a shame, because it's really more pleasant to work with, often. It's just not what it used to be.
