Improving on errors is a benefit - is shouldn’t have taken so long
I use the group function - a lot - I make a map and decorated it with a shape and a text box. Then I group it as sometimes I have to move it to another part of the report. For too long a time, this function did not work It drove me crazy. I must have written to Apple 450 times. But finally they corrected it and like a charm it works. Plus, the shapes can now have borders. My maps are now stellar. Apple style. But for some unknown reason - I guess to encourage the use of the iCloud - Apple took away the abitlity to hyperlink on Page document to another Page or other external document. What a shame. Not all of us can rely on the privacy of the iCloud. Thus the loss of this function is really heartbreaking. I was able to link all sorts of reports together and impressed many with a full supply of needed information. No more. I also think that the tool bar could be made more useful by including some other functions - such as view - why leave out layout. Those little lines always assist one as one is writing a document. Documents that are pleasing to the eye are more frequently read in an environment of non-readers. So while there are some new features that are really slick - the loss of other really slick features is sad. However, we are able to write and write again and again and again regarding our problems and thoughts and suggestions.
Don't update, install it separately
There are a lot of things wrong with this update, the loss of the super convienent inspector panel being a major one for me. I started using 5.0 having no idea there were problems and suddenly couldn't open any documents on any other of my macs that only have the '09 version, but I didn't want to up grade my other 3 macs because I wasn't gelling with the new version. I have found there is always a learning cure with a new or updated product so I just stuck with 5.0 for a good bit to see if I just needed to get used to it. I can't. I really dislike it and boy am I glad that I have both on my mac. For those of you with an older version pages in your iWork folder but documents you can't open in anything but 5.0, the easiest work around I found was to share the 5.0 doc to one of my non-icloud emails as a word doc. Then I just opened it in the pages '09 version and was good to go. There is probably an easier way but that is what I came up with first. I understand that they needed the iPad, iPhone, iPod version to work more seamlessly with the mac version but the solution would have been better to make the device version more robust instead of taking away functionality from the desktop version. I have both pages 09 and pages 5.0 on my mac but I really will never use the 5.0 version, to many hoops to jump through. If you decide to try 5.0, preserve your previous version - it's a real possibility you'll want to go back.
Why does it always have to be one step forward and two back?
What possible added benefit is there in making me go to five different menus to do what I used to be able to do from one little control panel?? Find/replace and inserts used to be on one handy spot. I could tell it to pay attention to capitalization or not, I could easily click on insert page break, carriage return, etc, etc, etc. Now it’s a giant cluster and even when i find the separate menu items to do all these things, I’m still not finding setting to pay attention to capitalization or not, just as one example. Doing a find/replace, I can’t even seem to insert things like a page break after a specific word or a carriage return after a certain word, etc. Do I now have to go through and do it manually at every single place it’s needed? This one issue alone has put a major crimp in my workflow. Maybe I’m somehow missing a way to do all this. If so, thanks for hiding it. I don;t really have time to play find the hidden features, I need to work.
Only reason i “upgraded”…using the term so, so loosely…was to be able to work back and forth between my computer and my iPad more easily. If I could go back to the previous version I would in a heartbeat.
And what’s with this stupid “tray” or whatever?? I can’t even work two documents side-by-side anymore be cause the dang document window won;t shrink to fit the page width .
