    Thanks.

     

    Took me 10 minutes but I finally found tiered numbers:

    Select Numbered list following by the down arrow by bullets.

    Hardly intuitive but at least it is there.

    Lots of missing items.  Clicking to the Services' contextual menu is a minor change but a very usefull feature which I was looking for.

    ↪ Pages '09 files saved from Pages 5 in Maverick are not protected by a simple name change eg (converted appended)

     

    ↪ Pages '09 files previewed on iPad via iCloud are irrevocably converted

     

    ↪ Update is missing for older installations, Apple is reportedly working on a solution via a redeemable code or update on their Support Download site

     

    ↪ Wrap methods have been cut back severely

     

    ↪ Documents reconverted back to Pages '09 lose all template information

     

    ↪ Language set under Edit > Spelling and Grammar > Show Spelling and Grammar now document wide

     

    ↪ Subscript/superscript text is now a convoluted route Gear > Advanced options > Baseline > Subscript/Superscript

     

    ↪ Headers and Footers appear to be multi-column

     

    ↪ Text is not wrapping in Footers

     

    ↪ New file format (but still .pages?) not backwardly compatible

    ↪ Custom Templates are now stored in ~/Library/Containers/com.apple.iWork.pages (a package)

     

    ↪ AppleScript Library for Pages 5 has changed with many classes and commands removed which indicates how the feature lists have been slashed

     

    ↪ Character Styles are in the Text Inspector under Bold, Italic etc

     

    ↪ Tabbing within Table cells appears to be inconsistent, tabbing internally with numbers.

    ↪ Layout Breaks work differently. You select the paragraphs you want as an exception and then change the column numbers. Currently can't find how to set before and after spacing or margin inset btw This is a totally undocumented and hidden procedure.

     

    ↪ Word Count is now Menu > View > Show Word Count

     

    ↪ Bookmarks are missing in Pages 5 but are still retained if exported back to Pages '09

     

    ↪ Bolding requires clicking on style and checking Emphasis

     

    ↪ Save as… is back

    Peter,

     

    You should check this thread. As most of us have Pages '09 we've neglected issues with Pages '08. They are in for a different world of hurt in that there is no migration path into Pages 5. They simply get a 'document too old' warning with a suggestion to migrate through Pages '09, which of course many don't have.

    Last List Notice

     

    I have now done a comprehensive check through of Pages 5 and have a long list of notes which I shall have to edit and put into a much more readable form.

     

    Currently I am interstate and not at my desk so bear with me whilst I write up the list and add a review of additions, removals, alterations, new methods and some suspected bugs.

     

    You will be pleased that I found some more worthy additions and improvements and thankfully very few extra removals beyond what has been already noted.

     

    Long as the removals list is, I have found, as expected, that some are not gone but just somewhere else.

     

    I have not had a chance to try and cycle files between versions and devices and that may prove difficult unless I can get a few volunteers with the right gadgets to try moving files around to see what happens.

     

    This forum is not an ideal place to post the final summary, because I can not format and link the results so I will post it in a new Pages 5 section that I will create in:

    ETA some time next week.

    Missing Custom Document / Page Sizes.

  • crumvoc Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Anyone know if/how Pages 09 (4.3) can be loaded into a new Mavericks machine? 

  • James Hassinger Level 1 Level 1 (70 points)

    And this is what Apple does to its software approximately every single time. Looked at one way, I think the whole property is much more valuable with the same code base, and feature parity for every platform. Do that, Microsoft. I imagine the feature set will improve. I think we should be militant about what we want back. Start buying competitors' stuff. However, one of the greatest things about Apple is that they WILL destroy software and build it back again. 64-bit codebase, the same feature set in the browser, including Windows browsers, including Chrome, and on the iDevices. They should tell you ahead of time that they're destroying what they built, with the story of where they're headed. Then you could run the BETA or NewPages or whatever, save to the new format from the old. The new file format is xmls with little compiled bits of text. Small bits, see? Loads quick on a 3GS and the MacPro.

     

    It should not have needed a warning, though. Let the new develop in the shell of the Old, Apple!

  • pinkuff Level 1 Level 1 (25 points)

    Of course it can, it's probably on an iWork '09 folder on your machine already - see here:

  • Edward Alvar Lockhart Domeño Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Another feature that I miss and I haven't found in the list (sorry, I didn't go through all 60 pages of posts) is the images on headers and footers.

     

    They are removed. If your company had its logo there, it just disappears...

  • pinkuff Level 1 Level 1 (25 points)

    Great job, Peter, looking forward to the final list which I will link also from the Facebook Page

  • pinkuff Level 1 Level 1 (25 points)

    Indeed so - one of the very first thing everybody notices because we all had our letterhead savaged by Pages 5.

    Well, not everybody, somebody DID NOT WANT letterhead in the first place

  • mgamer Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
