Hi.

 

I updated to the new iWork 10 today.

 

I can't uninstall iWork '09.

 

Suggestions?

    You can trash the '09 apps (Numbers, Pages, Keynote) after making a backup of your Mac.

     

    When you say you "can't uninstall," what exactly did you try doing?

    I just successfully dragged "iWork '09" in the Application folder to the trash can. When you say nothing happens do you mean the folder just go back to the Application folder or?

    arizonadonn:  Ah, a newbie.  Go to the last icon in the dock Applications folder, "Open in Finder".  Click on it.  It will open the "Applications" folder in "Finder".  Now you can drag the "iWork 09" folder to the trash (it will ask you for your password to confirm).  You can't drag apps to the trash directly from the dock application folder.  :-)

    Before you empty the trash, you might consider setting the iWork 09 folder aside in case you need it later. If you want to know why, browse some of today's other posts here.
