For a long time I have had a personal struggle to choose between Pages and Word. and it is that both programs have several important characteristics. With WORD I can include references, something that is a requirement for my research work, or University work, Pages on the other hand I have to pay for Endnote services, I need to add refferences in APA. PAGES I can incorporate videos, and interactive graphics, something useful to make interactive books, Word is not so functional in this regard. In WORD Education one I find extensive manuals with relevant information or even tutorials on youtube, Pages is limited The WORD Platform is more stable, and more robust, I am having problems, I can´t add one page without affect the rest of the documents. I hope that Pages developers can focus on some basics, where I can get mor training info, or tutorials that can help me with my issues I don't know where one can find PAGES Templates on Apple
good and then great
I hate this app with passion. It looks like it's impossible to uninstall, and I have to convert ALL of the documents to .docx for school. One time I forgot to do that - 0 points. Can't I have a choice which format I want for my documents?
Pages could easily be the best word processor for Mac, but it is so full of minor annoyances that it's a pain in the neck to use. You still can't drag text from Safari to the Pages icon in the dock to open a new document, as you can with any other app. You still have to copy and paste everything. This makes me use another word processor. Plus, Pages automatically labels a new document as "Untitled," which can erase any other documents named 'Untitled.' I have lost several articles that way, and it is infuriating. That means you have to stop what your're writing and name the saved file, interrupting your concentration. Other word processors automatically use the first few words of text as the file name, so you don't have to quit writing and decide what to label it. Also, the floating word count is always in the way. In fact, there too many irritating little problems with it to list here. These annoyances would normally be minor, except there are so many of them that I usually use other apps. I only use Pages when absolutely necessary.
Pages is still my favorite word processor, mainly because of its clean, attractive interface. A lot of people — I'm thinking Windows fans — seem to go for a cluttered screen full of clashing colors and inscrutable icons, but the Word interface gets me so irritated I lose track of what I'm trying to write. Next to Google docs, Pages is the least distracting to use, and it can do most of what I want. But less than Pages '09, and waaaay less than MS Word — which can handle vertical right-to-left Chinese text, insert images in a mail merge, define multilingual styles, and a heap of other things that keep making me go back to it. Luckily, it's free if you go for an Office 365 account with 1 TB of cloud storage, which is a better buy than Apple will ever offer. But I never use Word for work I can do in Pages. All of the digital giants seem to pride themselves on giving you less and worse than they easily could, and Pages is no exception. If Open Office ever gets a decent interface, they'll get my business, but for now, Pages is the best step up from Google Docs for the user without special requirements.
The Pages is the best application that I use as a word processor. But the lack of integration with free bibliography apps like Zotero is making me use other word processors that I don't like them. I ask apple developers to introduce this plugin and make science society happy. Thanks
I usually love this app, but it seems after the update, it refuses to open previous versions of Pages files. I was able to open a Pages file once, only to notice that it didn't save the work I did in it last time, and when I tried to revert to any previous versions of it, it only showed "Unable to open version." Apple, I'm getting really fed up with your updates making previous versions of anything obsolete or broken!
I use it all the time and it does everything I need. Please add true dark mode (the page itself, not just the frame) and reflowable type (so that I can easily switch between typing on different devices without having to zoom or manually change the font size).
Seriously, guys - why don't you have a "save as" function? Is it a patent thing? Hitting "duplicate" then having to rename the new document and close the old one is such a pain in the ass. You're just adding steps and places for confusion. Please add a "save as" function. Other than that, the program works well.
Cant even open the pages app, as it crashes constantly. tried updateing and just get spinning wheel for hours. Not a good solution for professionals. maybe a bake sale flier, but stick with MS word for real work.
