I am working with Pages '08 on my MBP. I keep my 150 page document on the dock so I can access it quickly. I wonder if there is a way to open only small sections of the Pages document at a time. I am worrried that to open and re-open so ofter, I might loose some of the pages.

Thank you

    Divide the document up into Sections with the page numbers starting from where the last one leads off.


    Then make those Sections individual documents, deleting the other sections.

    Thanks Peter,

    First I wanted to delete a page. It was in a section with another page that I didn't want to delete. I couldn't put a section break before the page to be deleted because the whole page is covered with a photo. I can't figure how to get rid of the unwanted page and not delete the one in the same section (when i select and press delete they both go).


    I wanted to move some of the pages out of pages if possible. I opened a Page layout and tried to drag and drop, but the thumbnails would not go to layout page.


    I read in Pages '08 guide but can't seem to make Section Break work.


    I am a novice, so any info would be appreciated.


    Thanks, Arudi

    Click on the photo which has text wrap:


    Menu > Arrange > Send to back


    You should now be able to insert a Section Break on that Page.
