Currently Being ModeratedOct 25, 2008 4:33 AM (in response to Brie Fly)Hi Brie Fly!
Sorry but reloading the complete iWork application which of course includes Pages, has made no improvement! Unbelievable! To repeat: Once Pages is opened and I select "Open an existing file" the application crashes and disappears revealing the above mentioned crash report. Similarly, I cannot use any of the virgin templates on the opening screen.
So thanks for your sensible suggestion but I need to keep looking for a solution. Any thing you or any other kind soul might think of, would be much appreciated. I'm really up against my deadlines now with precious documents I can longer access and no solution in sight!!e-Mac G4, Mac OS X (10.4.11), 1 GB DDR Ram
Currently Being ModeratedOct 25, 2008 5:11 AM (in response to Sooty)Hi again!
In my desperation to find a fix, I've trashed the Pages cache and prefs files - Together with re-installing the Pages App' it means that now I can open existing documents but the minute I try to save (or auto save cuts in) the app crashes.
So the symptoms have changed a bit and of course I can now copy most of the text from each document and paste into 'Word' although this is a long winded way of working!
All other computer functions in other apps seem unaffected..
More help needed please!e-Mac G4, Mac OS X (10.4.11), 1 GB DDR Ram

now I can open existing documents but the minute I try to save (or auto save cuts in) the app crashes.
That makes me wonder if there might not be a permissions issue with the folder that your documents are being saved to (although. this wouldn't explain why other user accounts have a similar problem).24" iMac (Alum), Mac OS X (10.5.5)
Currently Being ModeratedOct 26, 2008 1:21 AM (in response to Brie Fly)Thank you again - seems an impasse has been reached.. I'll repost the query elsewhere just in case someone comes up with an idea.. If not I guess I'll have to a total re-install of OSX?
Good luck in your endeavours and thanks againe-Mac G4, Mac OS X (10.4.11), 1 GB DDR Ram
