I'm unable to track changes in tables within Pages. This problem persists in Pages 3.0.1, and existed in the initial release, too. Is this a bug, or a feature?

    I think it is missing functionality. MS Word tracks changes in tables, but with some limitations, so not even Microsoft handles it completely.

    ivanovitch,

    You meant to post this in the Pages '08 forum.

    After I read your post, I tried to duplicate the problem you described and, unfortunatley, I was successful. I put some text in a table, went back and made changes and ... nothing. Until I inserted a text box and started typing in it -- then Pages mistakenly thought everything I was typing was a change, and shaded it in blue. Very weird behavior.

    So Pages won't track changes in a table, yet will report the next occurrence of typing as a change, no matter where it occurs (text layer, text box, object).

    I'd suggest sending some feedback to the Pages team.
