Maybe this link to the documentation of Pages helps you out? Choose Format > Font > Capitalization and choose an option from the submenu. Choose Small Caps to change the text to smaller capitals with larger capitals for uppercase letters

There is a bug in Pages. When you export a file in ".doc" or ".docx" format it embeds 489KB PNG files (a single one in a docx file, three in a doc file). These files are intended to be used as the background fill on default shapes, but they are present whether they are used or not. I documented the bug here. And reported it to Apple as rdar://17089255. At ...

I recommend you just delete Numbers and Keynote using Finder. The Mac App Store will detect the missing apps and allow you to reinstall them in the future if you ever need them. Alternatively, you can use AppCleaner to delete them. This will remove all associated preference/cache files. This is usually superfluous unless you have an actual need to delete ...

The Fastest way to to do this is to change the file extension from name.pages to name.zip (actually manually click on the file name and change the extension to .zip) Now just unzip your document and you will get a folder with all the images in it. Same works for ePubs.

In later iWork edition Apple made changes to the formats so this is the cause that you can not follow the procedure described in the article that you are referring. The best way to go around this annoyance would be: Open the pages document with your current pages (I assume is the latest Pages), Save us some other name but before you do it extend the save ...

There is an additional set of margins in a Pages document. I exported a document to Pages '09 and opened it with the old version. In the Layout Inspector, I found the "Layout Margins". The "Left" and "Before" margins were non-zero and the numbers matched the unwanted margins I saw in Pages 5.2. Here's a sample: I changed those layout margins to 0, ...

There's no automatic way of adding a caption. If your image is inline, add the text below using the Caption text style. If your image is floating, you'll need to add a text box below the image. You can group these if you wish.

Saving versions The first thing to know about Versions is that ⌘ Command+S now means "Save a Version". While you're editing the document, your work is automatically saved — but these snapshots are only created when a new version is created. So, rather than Save As, you can Save a Version. Of course, versions will be automatically created as well — every ...

I was recently in a similar position because I needed something for school, and I went with Pages, pretty much on price alone. A 5-license family pack of Pages costs a whole third less than the Home & Student version of Word, so I can put Pages on both home and work laptops and still have extra for my wife's and mum-in-law's Macs. The article linked in ...

Unfortunately Apple's PDF export doesn't create the standard PDF Table of Contents, you'll need to use other software to add one to your existing PDF. There are a variety of options at a variety of prices: OpenOffice Writer: A hassle, but it's the only free option I've seen. You'd export your Pages file as Word or rtf and then open it in OpenOffice Writer ...

Ensure that the applications reside in /Applications/iWork '09 or the software update process does not seem to find them.

Are you asking how to turn an existing document into a template, or are you needing advise on how to make the document? If it's the former, you just need to save your document as a template using quite simply File > Save as template. If it's the latter, then judging by the link you mentioned, I would start with a blank document in page layout format. ...

I've posted a general solution for all three iWork programs here, but here's what to do for Pages. This solution requires using Terminal. Do the following: Make a backup copy of your file Open Terminal.app In the Terminal window, type cd (that's with a space after the cd) then drag your file to the window. It should insert the full path of your file (e.g. ...

Your Pages templates are located in the following folder: ~/Library/Containers/com.apple.iWork.Pages/Data/Library/Application Support/User Templates You can rename and delete templates without accessing the folder directly, by right-clicking on a template in the template chooser.

It seems like Apple eventually added this feature to Pages 5. The following works for me in Pages version 5.2.2 (1877): In case you've changed the style of any Bullet & List style, an asterisk (*) appears after the name of the style: If you open the drop down list, you'll see an update button: You can either press the update button, or click on ...

I've managed to expand the file by using the system (or any other) archive utility. Here's how I got into the file: Make a copy of the .key, .pages, or .numbers document Change the file extension to .zip Unarchive as you would any other .zip file to produce a folder This folder is similar to previous show package contents bundle representations of older ...

You need to go to the Mac App Store and install the latest version of Pages (5.x) As of now, the latest version of Pages is 5.5.1, and it's only available from the App Store. Mac App Store Apple website I've seen this when using Pages from iWork '09, which is 4.3. The file format changed and iWork '09 cannot directly open the new files. You can ...

Your old iWork versions are not removed, so you can safely upgrade and keep both versions. As Apple rolls "upgrades" to the newer version back in you can decide when it has restored sufficient functionality for it to do what you need it to. Sorry if this doesn't specifically answer your question but it will get rid of the updates reminder...

This is not possible in Pages 5.0. If your wish for a format bar above the document outweighs any benefit from Pages 5.0, you can continue to use iWork '09. You can also notify Apple that you would like this feature implemented using their Pages feedback page: http://www.apple.com/feedback/pages.html

In fact what Apple did here is better than before : If you write in only one of these 3 columns it behaves as if there were only one column.

You can have Pages automatically add a line across the whole page, the formatting options (dash size etc.) are rather limited though: You can also use the fill option when setting tabs:

Right click on the misspelled word and select “Unlearn Spelling”. As Pages uses OS X’ global spelling services, you can use this method anywhere text input is spell checked by it (more or less any text area, with the notable exceptions of MS Office, OpenOffice / LibreOffice, Firefox and a few other apps ported from the non OS X world). If a misspelled ...

You can open Word documents with the built-in TextEdit app. It will display and print them the same way (as far as I can tell) as QuickLook does.

Since necessity is the mother of invention, I've found my own solution... Sync'd iPad with iTunes as usual, restored iPad to factory settings, then restored iPad from backup. I feel like a fool for not seeing this off the bat, but if you knew this boy, you'd know what was at stake with him losing his work. I have a feeling that he won't set anymore ...

The way I do it is I export the OpenOffice document to Microsoft Word DOC format, then use Pages to convert that into a Pages document. There may be some formatting loss, but I'm not aware of a way to convert directly from one format to the other.

You have to change the settings in the "International" panel in System Preferences. Go to System Preferences. Go to the Language & Text (In 10.6) panel (the language tab appears first by default). Put your preferred language at the top of the list (you might have to edit the list). Relaunch your iWork application (Pages, Numbers, Keynote) and your ...
