I'm using Pages '09 with Mountain Lion (10.8.3).

Every time I open a file to just print it and don't make any modifications, Pages '09 flags it as modified.

If I just want to close +W this file, and to be sure I didn't make any unwanted modifications, I get this window:

test Pages warning window.

  • The first choice makes me think I made an unwanted modification.
  • The third one is inappropriate if I didn't made modifications.
  • The second choice bring me back to the same state: document to close and next the same warning window.

Is there an easy way to suppress this irrelevant warning window in such a case, i.e. when I didn't made any modification and such a warning window is neither necessary nor usefull.

Is this bug fixed in any recent version of Pages?


Since the file is being modified, there's no way to suppress this.

You can notify Apple that you would like this feature implemented using their Pages feedback page:

  • → grgarside: thank you for your attempt to help. The bug is reported to Apple since more than 2 years. I'm here talking of a situation where I clearly didn't made any modification to my file. I'm not talking of modifications made either by the software or the system which I don't care of, and moreover I don't want to be bothered with. Otherwise, you easily imagine that any simply opened file should be flagged as modified (think of access time ☺). – dan Dec 30 '13 at 14:48
