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

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 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 ...

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 ...

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. ...

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

Excuse the large picture, but I have used Screen Sharing to share the screen of an iMac running Lion and Pages '09 over the virtual display, and it works just fine. I suspect that the assumed problem of with pages inability to work over a virtual VNC connection is not accurate, but there is something more local to your machine that needs attention.

This does seem to be a missing feature. As I see it, you have two options: Export as *.doc using File -> Export. While not ideal, I imagine almost everything that supports *.docx also supports *.doc. TextEdit is able to save as *.docx. Of course this is only really an option if your formatting is simple.

The only way to share documents with other people via iCloud (at this time) would be to give them your iCloud password—not a great idea, particularly if it's also your iTunes Store ID. Using the shared folder option of DropBox is sounder practice.

The versions are not embedded in the files, but instead get stored elsewhere. Due to the nature of how Lion stores versions, small files get saved entirely, but larger files can track only the parts of the file that changed in fairly snazzy ways to reduce the chance that some trivial change to a very large file uses more than a trivial amount of version ...

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 ...

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 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 ...

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.

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

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...

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 ...

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:

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, ...

You can insert a footnote by going to Insert → Footnote

Best is to reduce the photos before they are added to Pages. For printing they do not have to be more than 300 dpi. For viewing on the screen about 75 - 100 dpi. Pages doesn't do the job as you found out. You can do it in Preview > tools > Adjust size (on a Mac) If do not ant to leave the iPad then you can use one of the many external apps to do it. ...

The Mac App Store updates to iWork should not have replaced the original iWork '09 apps. Simply delete the new apps and use the old ones. The original apps should still be available under /Applications/iWork '09 as well as if you search for them in Spotlight. If you've deleted the older versions, you can use Time Machine or reinstall them from the retail ...

You can add a rule to System Preferences > Keyboard > Text and have it replace --- by any number of dashes you’d want.

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.
