I did a clean install of Mountain Lion and then reinstalled iWork 08. All the programs are functioning normally except numbers. The zoom settings are now set as: 2500%, 5000%, 7500%, 10000% etc... rather than 25%, 50%... The zoom setting in the prefernce pane shows the correct setting (ie 25%, 50%) but  on the the worksheet everything remains unchanged at 2500% etc. Any suggestions?

MacBook, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    Just in case I didn't explain myself clearly here are two screen shots of the problem:


    The Default Zoom in the preferences pane:

    and what shows up on the spreadsheet:

    Well, after digging around I found a solution. Software update doesn't automatically download the latest version of Numbers after installation. Do a search for Numbers version 1.0.3, install it and, in my case at least, the problems were solved (though the zoom still shows 10000% at the bottom the screen the actual zoom is 100%). The interesting thing is you have set Gatekeeper to accept software from "Anywhere" because it claims the update is from an unknown source.
