    So who's going to be gamey enough to try the new and improved Page 5.0.1?

    Peter:

     

    Although the iCloud Open/Save dialogue box (and on the iPad) is not strictly part of Pages, the whole iOS/OSX cross-device synchronizability (whew!) is what seems to have caused the mess. Here's another issue I have, and I'm not sure if this is supposed to be a (secrecy) GUI feature, a brainless omission, a bug, or perhaps gremlins are on the lose in my iPad. When attempting to open an iCloud file from your iPad, the graphical/textual cues are definitely ...ahem... less than helpful:

    The same files show up better on the OSX Open/Save GUI:

    Mac.jpg

    (The bottom-center file does have a blank 1st page, which then shows up as the custom icon...) Even on OSX, one of the files remains with a generic icon, and while the folder is previewed, there are not file-names. So, in a working environment with dozens of dozens of documents... how is one to find anything? (I'm assuming that this "feature" is not limited to my own devices.)

    Downloading...

    Pages13 (update = 290MB): "Customize the toolbar with your most important tools, Center and edge guides ad on by default, Stability improvement and bug fixes." (I don't suspect the bug fixes include the other 80 or so missing features.)

    Hey Robo, we're looking for a guinea pig to try the Pages update!

  • cosmofromwatertown Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    I suppose it depends on if you consider them missing features or bugs..., or perhaps undiscovered workflows.

    The toolbar customization now allows putting a sub/superscript button there, which was one other of the missing features:

    Also, by removing the text, the toolbar takes up less vertical space and the individual icons take up less horizontal space.

    Cosmo,

     

    I’ve watched this discussion closely from the start, but not contributed until now. I feel the need to say a few serious words.

     

    As a fairly heavy user of iWork ’09, and having started with ClarisWorks, I detest Pages 5 and the way Apple have foisted it on us with precious little, or no regard for faithful users and their valuable documents.

     

    My point is this:

     

    I think your invitation to robo is the beat-all, hands-down, no-nonsense, funniest thing I’ve seen in this discussion so far. No question. I simply could not begin to tell you how badly it cracked me up. No kidding. I’ve been laughing for at least 20 minutes – and counting.

     

    Kind regards and thanks a million.

    Seriously, apple, ***?

     

    Please update pages WITH at least the alignment guides, vertical ruler, and option to rearrange pages in document. PLEASE.

     

    The new pages upgrade is HORRIBLE. The only reason I upgraded was so I could sync documents from my mac pro to my ipad through sharing and icloud.

     

    If I had known...

     

    So, basically if you want to enjoy pages as a valuable work tool, keep the old version.

    DO NOT UPGRADE.

     

    I am really peeved about  the missing vertical ruler and alignment guides. What did you expect apple—for us to put rulers to our screens?

    John;

    And still no way to edit a longer document. No bookmarks, no search pane, no comment pane, no outline function, no way to search on codes.

    Peter,

     

    Thanks for your well-organized list.  You have one item that the list shows as missing, and in reality Apple just moved the handle:

     

    Create series in cells by drag extend samples

     

    The Fill Handle has moved from the lower right corner to the midpoint of the selection border, and the handle has changed from a white circle to a yellow circle.

     

    Jerry

     

    Thanks Jerry

     

    I'l correct the list to move that to changed.

     

    This is a large part of the problem. Apple keeps moving the furniture around and hiding it so we don't know if it went overboard or is just somewhere we can't find it. Apple not talking to us only adds to the huge problems it has created.

    Looks to me like the customizable Toolbar was either not ready for launch or so close to the surface that it was the easiest UI to resurrect.

    Nope.  It looks to me that 5.0.1 is simply a way to get all those bad ratings off the app store.  With 5.0.1, everything starts new... and it is getting RAVE reviews (8 of 13 ratings are *****!)

  • PeterBreis0807 Level 7 Level 7 (32,545 points)

    Now I wonder crumvoc who might be pumping in those rave reviews?
