I've just started using Mavericks and it seems that some of the features I liked in Pages are missing. One that I used a lot is the auto update in "insert date and time." I usually want the date to be current to show when I last opened a file. As far as I can determine, that option is no longer available, and I'll have to manually change the date. Is this correct, or is there a way to do make it update automatically?

MacBook Pro with Retina display, OS X Mavericks (10.9.1)

    Toolbar > + > Date & Time


    However Apple has removed over 90+ other features from Pages 5.



    Be careful, Pages 5 will alter/damage Pages '09 files and once opened and saved in Pages 5 or iCloud they can no longer be opened in Pages '09.


    Pages '09 is still in your Applications/iWork folder.

    Pages 5 requires Pages 2 for iOS on the iPad running under iOS7.


    There have been problems everywhere else, but I have been unable to fully test what happens between the iPad, the Mac, iCloud and iWork for iCloud beta.


    The lack of communication is not new with Apple. They have a tendency to talk the talk but not necessarily walk the walk.
