Tutorial Description

Pages is Apple's latest word processing application and has been completely re-written from scratch.

The re-write brings basic feature parity and a unified file format across the three primary platforms supported by Apple - The Mac, iOS and the Web via iCloud.

Whilst some of the more advanced features of the previous version of Pages have been removed to accommodate the new cross platform support, Pages is still a useful tool for a large percentage of basic word processing needs and it's now free!

In this week's show, I start my coverage of the entire suite of updated iWork and iLife suites, by taking an initial look at some of the basics of Pages for the Mac.

No previous knowledge of Pages is assumed and I start from first principles.

The full tutorial covers:

  • Pages Introduction
  • Template Browser
  • User Interface - Part 1
  • Saving & Restoring Files
  • User Interface - Part 2
  • Working With Text
  • Using Bullets & Lists
  • Outlining in Pages
  • Text Layout
  • Smart Links
  • Convert To Page Layout
  • Text Boxes

Hi Don,
Thanks for the detailed overview of Pages.

I know you didn't cover printing and margins in this episode, but I can see where they can be controlled in the Setup dialog, so that's good.

But when you cover Numbers, can you explain what's happened to Margin controls for page-layout in the new version of Numbers? It seems to be missing, thus forcing all my spreadsheets to have unsightly 1" margins when printing.
