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!!
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!
Well, my other guess would have been a corrupt font, but your most recent observations would rule that out.
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).
