I like it

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.

Good but could be great

In many ways, Pages is a joy to use, but it lacks just a few small features to make it really great. Ironically, most of the missing features would find very broad use in academia and I had hoped today's event would be the perfect time to (re-)introduce them: (1) Line numbering--This is required by vitually all journals to which academics submit manuscripts, not to mention by lawyers and other groups, but Pages still cannot sequentially number lines throughout a documents. It is irritating to have to move the manuscript to MS Word just to number the stupid lines! (2) Non-contiguous selection--this was present in the "old" Pages but has not appeared since. It is essential in technical writing so you can set all your subscripts or super scripts at once (or efficiently apply italics, etc.). (3) Interoperability with other apps--Compatability with EndNote and MathType was hardwired into pages a few versions ago, but lack of open format and scripting access prevent much more capable, and more frequently updated apps, like Bookends from being nearly as useful as they could be (and as they were in the "old" Pages). There are other minor issues but these are the big three, at least for university-level academics. (And, yes, I have submitted these feedback requests multiple times!)

Nice Facade - fails at the actual work

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!!
