    Quit Pages

     

    - click finder in the dock, so the word finder appears beside the apple.  Also note in the top menu, is the word "Go", click the go menu and then hold down your option key on your keyboard.  This will make a "library" appear under your home in the Go drop down.   Select the library, then go to your preferences folder. 

     

    There, look for the following files, and drag them out to your desktop:

         - com.apple.iWork.Pages.plist

     

    Go back one screen by clicking the backward arrow and select the "Caches folder", or go back to "Go" hold down your option key on your keyboard, and select the library, the folder entitled "Caches"

     

    There, look for the following files, and drag them out to your desktop:

         - com.apple.iWork.Pages

     

    - restart your computer

    - test out Pages

    How are you trying to close them? There are several ways to accomplish this.

     

    Click the red button at the top left of the document window.

     

    Go to File > Close

     

    Type ⌘ W
