When staring Pages it either opens the Template Chooser or a template, depending on which you have set in the Pages preferences. Pages doesn't open a Finder window other then if you in the Template chooser click on Open file or Open Recent.
I you have started Pages and in the File menu click on Open you will get a Finder window. If you at that point instead want a new document you have to click on New in the File menu.

Thanks for your response. I found something else aswell. IF you have DOCUMENTS AND DATA turned on in the cloud then the Finder Dialog Box appears when you open Pages 09 and there is an option to view Pages documents you have on the Cloud in the upper left of that box. I turned-off Documents and Data for the Cloud in on both my iMAC and iPhone 5 and now Pages 098 opens directly - without displaying the Finder Dialog Box.

Ah, iCloud. Nothing I use.

Thank you! Unchecking Documents and Data in iCloud Preferences caused the Finder window to stop appearing on Pages startup.

Thank you for your solution. I had turned on iCloud in System Preferences to take advantage of Find My Mac. Documents and Data was checked by default. iCloud became intrusive (bullying its way into my Open and Save actions). Now that I have unchecked Documents and Data my Mac is back to how a Mac should behave.
Caution! The iCloud bully told me it would delete anything stored on iCloud from my Mac. Fortunately I had only a couple of Untitled docs stored there. Anything more important I would have backed up on a USB stick before unchecking Documents and Data.
Many thanks and regards,

Yes, I saw that too but so far I havent noticed any repurcussions on the Mac itself...

Can we take that to mean that the iCloud threat to delete stuff from my Mac was an idle threat? And the iCloud bully is really a wimp?
P.S. Your username contains an email address. Best to change it. This is an open forum .

Hi, yes so far there's been no impact on my Mac.
Thanks for the caution regarding my user name. Where exactly do I change that?

You'll have to create another and abandon this one.
But you've put your email address out there now.
Click on Report post and ask the admin to delete all your posts.
I suggest you spend some time in an Apple Store and get heads up on how to use your new Mac and computing generally.

Thanks for your suggestion Peter. I've already spent quite a lot of time at the Apple store. Since I'm an IT professional, pretty sure I dont need to take your last suggestion seriously. Suggest you stay on point.

Sorry, we do get new users here and we are only going by what you do and say.
Why then did you use your actual email address as your name?
