I get the same errors and log messages. I'm currently running permissions repair, I've heard that's helpful for many problems with OSX.Macbook 13", Mac OS X (10.5.7)

Currently Being ModeratedAug 22, 2009 3:08 PM (in response to KOENIG Yvan)Well I finally got it to work. I uninstalled and AppTrap grabbed a few preference files that belonged to Pages and I allowed it to delete them all. I rebooted and installed iWork again, but I got the same issue, again. I was attempting to select a blank document style from the Template Chooser, but it wouldn't open any, just spinning the wheel in the template preview in the Template Chooser window. I went into preferences and told it to create new files using the Blank template, and that worked. However, it wouldn't let me use the Template Chooser to open a new document.
I saved the new document, created from the Blank template in Template Chooser, to the desktop. I double-clicked on this document and it said it couldn't be opened? However, I could open it from inside Pages, just not by opening the document and having it use the default application (Pages) to open it with.
Lots of odd stuff going on here. I came to the idea that something residual was sitting on my HD, and decided to try a better cleaning. I opened Clean My Mac and dropped Pages on the Applications window. Clean My Mac did a scan and identified a ton of items pertaining to uninstalling Pages, nearly 900MB of misc documents, caches, and other stuff. At this point I wasn't too worried about deleting the wrong thing, as I am nearly ready to wipe and reinstall, whatever it takes to straighten it out.
After removing everything, I did a reboot just to be safe. Then in reinstalled iWork 09, and attempted to open documents using Template Chooser. SUCCESS! However, I remembered that it worked just fine until I applied the 9.0.2 update to iWork, so I was cautiously doubtful that I would be able to work this time once I applied the update. Well, it seems CleanMyMac pulled something off that was complicating things, possibly from the old iWork '08 version, or the Trial Version? I'm not really sure.
Anyhow, thanks for the help and suggestions. I've got a bunch of errors showing-up in the Console, and slowly, little-by-little, I'm working on trying to research and solve them all. I wish I could find a good source for referencing all of the errors that are showing-up, as this seems like it'll take a long time.

Currently Being ModeratedAug 25, 2009 10:06 PM (in response to spotcheckdf)I was having the same EXACT problem, and the issue for me ended up being in the Application Support folder. Here's what I did to fix it:
Uninstall iWork. Beyond just deleting the programs, be sure to delete everything in /Library/Application Support/iWork '09. I also deleted anything in /Library/Preferences that had anything to do with iWork or Pages.
Now reboot, then reinstall. Everything works like a charm for me now. Not sure what caused it, but I sure am glad I finally fixed it.MacBook Pro 13", Mac OS X (10.5.8)

This folder contains a lot of shared items (I listed them in an other message).
One of them was perhaps missing or corrupted.
