I created a newsletter last October using a template from Pages and it was awesome. Now I'm trying to create another one and there are only 4 templates for newsletter. What happened to the rest that I saw in October? Did I lose them after upgrading to OS Mavericks? Where do I find them again?

MacBook Pro (17-inch Early 2011), OS X Mavericks (10.9.1)

    Your version of Pages '08/'09 was upgraded to Pages 5.


    Apple has removed over 90 features from Pages 5. Because Pages 5 can not do much of what was in Pages '09, Apple removed 2/3rds of the templates in Pages 5 and simplified the rest.



    If you had Pages '09 before, it should still be in your Applications/iWork folder.


    Archive/trash Pages 5, after Exporting your files to Pages '09, and rate/review it in the App Store, then get back to work.

    Installing Pages 5 does not delete any previous Pages you have so it must be somewhere.


    The default location is inside an iWork folder inside the Applications folder.


    Have you searched your hard drive for Pages '09?


    Yes you should use Pages '09.

    How did you purchase it?


    If you purchased it from the App Store, you can download it again, if you are running OSX 10.8.


    If you are running Mavericks and don't want to go back to Mountain Lion, then you will have to ask Apple to reinstall Pages '09 etc.


    You have paid for them.
