    Pages for the Mac is seriously degraded in its new iteration. One of the best features of Pages was the ability to word wrap images but the new product wipes half the images I put into it from iphoto and I cannot find a workaround and suspect this will drive me back to the juggernaut that is MS Word.

    Many thanks for the prompt response. I gave up with the original inserted images from iphoto on my MacAir and reinserted them on the MacMini where I am printing the two page file and have now managed to print this revised document. In the original two of the five images from iphoto showed up as blank image holders with a question mark and a diagonal line across when printed, though the Pages screen displayed them as normal. So Pages is no longer WYSIWYG. Again it is more reminiscent of Word in this respect only now without many of the features of Word, or even Work 09.

    The list on the first page of this thread needs to be updated to reflect that:

    - "customise toolbar…" is not missing (since the 5.0.1 update; as reported by Tristan Hubsch on page 89 here a month ago)

    -  Subscript/superscript buttons are not missing

    (since the 5.0.1 update; as reported by Tristan Hubsch on page 89 here a month ago)

     

    Also I'm wondering what 12. ("Endnotes gone") and 14. ("Update is missing for older installations, Apple is reportedly working on a solution via a redeemable code or update on the ir Support Download site") in the "Missing" list are about. I was at an Apple Store today which gave me the chance to check out Pages 5. As far as I could tell it has Endnotes integration. And from what I've been reading about OS X 10.9.1 it makes sure the update shows up for older installations.

    My main gripe with Pages 5 while glancing over it were the missing possibilities to add, duplicate and move pages via the "Page Thumbnails" view. I think that's what 7. ("Duplicate pages gone") in the "Missing" list refers to. Maybe that entry should be modified to clarify that all managing of pages (adding, duplicating and moving) via the thumbnails view does not work in Pages 5. Also, ""Capture pages gone" could be merged in since it's also about that view.

     

    Edit: ah, so apparently "Manage pages and sections from the thumbnail view" is on the list of features which will be re-added short-term. Yay! :-)

    It's unfortunate you cannot update the first post in this thread because it will mislead people to believe features are missing which are not.

     

    I am not willing to take this topic to your personal forum but I did notice that the thread you referred me to still lists "customise toolbar…" as a missing feature even though it is not…

     

    I will hold my breath waiting for Apple to re-add removed features which they have promised to bring back.

     

    As for your telling me not to "not go putting anything important" in the new Pages format: I don't take orders, sorry. ;-)

    It'll take more than that to drag me back into this mess of a thread.  Reference noted, however.

    The new iwork apps are a step backward.  Make for simple Simons. Not for powe users. What the **** is apple thinking.  Using my old apps.  What a dissapointment.

    I was forced to upgrade after losing everything trying to upgrade to Maverick. The new pages is horrible. Bring back alignment guildes.

    Are there compatibility issues between Pages 4.x and Mavericks? There's no way I'd use Pagex 5.x and I haven't updated my OS yet (still using 10.8.5).
