I had a similar problem last Pages update and was told that if Pages came from the App Store there was no way to go back a version. If you had have a copy of the software on disk I guess you could remove Pages and reinstall it from disk. What I am puzzled about is why you wouldn't be able to go back a version using your time machine backup.

Actually, as I found out today, you can restore the application from Time Machine. I opened the Time Machine, then just restored the version of Pages I wanted, so I didn't have to restore all my applications, so now I have the edition I want. But Apple will still need to solve this problem as anyone using Pages to convert to ePub and load to the iBookstore won't be able to.

I'm glad to hear you can restore it from time machine, is it simple to do? I wonder why no one suggested it to me when I had problems with the last upgrade. Can I suggest that you send details of your problem to Apple at email@example.com.

It wasn't really a suggestion. And I have sent the details to Apple and I will be talking with them today about a resoultion with the new pages and the ePub delivery to iBookstore. The bigger problem is the ePub file fails when you load through iTunes. The file itself can be read on a the iPad, just can't be made available for sale in iBookstore because of this new coding problem. The earlier edition worked fine. I ended up talking with a senior tech, who at the time could not solve the problem other than possibly restoring back to an earlier edition from Time Machine, but it wasn't really what they wanted me to do. But in order to do my job, I did it. And it is easy. You DONT do it from migration. You go to search, search for time machine and open it, then in an earlier folder, open applications and find the application you want to restore, and hit restore. Then it will ask you if you want to replace the application, say yes. And your are done!

You are a blessing. I went into time machine and found the old version and restored it. Thank you SO much. I really don't like the new version so I am so happy to have the old one back! I almost lost several documents that I was working on! Thank you again!
