I am REALLY ANNOYED by this. There is one feature in Pages '09 that allows a user to "link" to other documents, spreadsheets and pdf files that is not available in Pages 7. I had a very important and large file with many links that has been rendered unusable by this move by Apple to not allow '09 files to open. Thanks Apple ... now what ! I am royally f***ked !!!

Procrastination has its consequences five years after Apple discontinued the iWork '09 application suite, and failed to provide comparable features in all Pages applications released afterward. Based on Apple's storied past of document format, and application abandonment, you should not be surprised at all that you now have a document migration issue.

There are a long list of missing features in Pages 7.2 but worse is how it works.


macOS and Apple design are now a User Interface Chinese Laundry Basket. I don't think that Apple's designers read their own User Guidelines, or if they do they simply ignore them because everyone else at Apple has decided that consistency, usability and functionality is for the birds.


This season's Polka Dots and big fat bows are more important than being able to do your work.
