The 'short' answer ... is that different apps copy formatted text to the clipboard in different ways, and different apps support pasting from different formats. Typically you'll get some kind of 'plain text' format, as well as maybe HTML or RTF formatted text in the clipboard, and it's up to the pasting app to choose which it likes best. Keynote 6.1 ...

It appears the correct answer is I cannot do this unfortunately.

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.

The Mac App Store updates to iWork should not have replaced the original iWork '09 apps. The original apps should still be available under /Applications/iWork '09 as well as if you search for them in Spotlight - just look for iWork '09 next to the name if you decide not to delete the newer versions. If for some reason you have deleted the older versions, ...

This was changed in Lion along with the introduction of Auto Save and Versions. Save As is still available by holding ⌥ alt whilst in the menus.

You cannot treat iCloud as some sort of internet filesystem like Dropbox. The only way to place data into the iCloud system is via an iCloud enabled app. There is no generic way to access your iCloud files except via the application that put the files there in the first place. So, in order to use iCloud, use iCloud enabled apps. Use the same apps on 2 or ...

Create a slide with the background you want, then copy that background. Go the master slides section, click on the master slide you are using, and paste the background onto the master slide. All your slides (that use that master slide) will have the same background.

Best practice would arguably be to Duplicate the document the moment you open it, then proceed with your edits. However, sometimes we open a document and start working, only to realize that it's now (in our mind) a "new" document based on the original. Applications that support Lion's versioning will give you the option to Duplicate and Revert, meaning that ...

If you want to change the appearance of all the slides: While creating a new document, choose any template. From the menubar, select View > Show Master Slides. Select the layout you want to edit from the navigator pane on the left. On the Toolbar, click on Inspector (“i” icon). Choose the second tab icon (slide icon) in the Inspector window. Click on ...

Ah! A few more minutes of "seeking" - and I found out where Apple moved the functionality. For all desperate - here the solution: Make sure you clicked on the slide-overview (on the left), so that the slide gets a yellow border Then far-away on the right select the "Format" button. Then below it you will see the current master slide for the selected ...

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 the ...

Another way to do this without clicking in each cell would be to use the =HYPERLINK() function. Here are some steps: Add a second column (Let's call it B) In the adjacent cell, add a formula like this: =HYPERLINK(A1) Drag the formula down Provided that the original URL's are valid, this will convert them. You can even add your own text in place of the ...

This is probably the online highlighter you are using. I use http://markup.su and it works fine with Keynote 6.1 - it autodetects a number of languages and has a number of "themes". If it isn't the highlighter then it may be your template or browser. I was able to take your code and paste it from markup.su in Safari into Keynote perfectly.

Every new Mac (MBP, iMac, Mac Mini, MacBook Air, Mac Pro) purchased from Apple comes preinstalled with the latest version of Mac OS X the latest version of iLife no iWork Every new iDevice has: the latest version of iOS no iWork no iLife Every new copy of Lion has: Lion no iWork no iLife

You are correct in that you need to use the SUMIF function. This is the specification from the Function Browser: SUMIF(test-values, condition, sum-values) Try this in your cell: =SUMIF(CATEGORY; "=HW"; POINTS)

You can do this with the IF function. The syntax is… ┌── IF function returns one of two values when upon an expression's evaluation. │ │ ┌── string or calculation for cell to show upon TRUE/FALSE │ │ strings should be inside double quotes "like this" │ ┌────┴─────────┐ IF(if-expression,if-true,if-...

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. /Users/me/Documents/My\ Great\ File.pages). Copy and paste the following command as a single line ...

The Apple business model is the opposite to that of Microsoft. Purchases are tied to you & your Apple ID, not to the machine they run on. This makes migrating to a new machine very simple, but juggling purchases across multiple IDs difficult. Apple doesn't want you setting up multiple IDs just on a whim, it wants one user tied to one ID. Once you ...

iWork has multi language support. If you buy iWork in a French packaging, you can still use a different language on your Mac. The language used in any iWork program will be the same as in your System Preferences set in OS X. Advantages of the Mac App Store version There is no disadvantage (besides no install DVD) when buying the iWork suite from the Mac ...

The answer is No. Versions (autosave) is a feature introduced with Lion and the logical continuation of making OS X more like iOS - in this special also more user-friendly. If you want to save the same document using a different name, you have to create a duplicate. Ultimately, you need to find a solution which makes saving as a duplicate faster: e.g. ...

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.

There is no way to make Numbers get data from a database. (It's more of a consumer tool.) https://discussions.apple.com/thread/1827581 A workaround: you can use Excel to grab the data, and import the XLS file to Numbers for prettier chart-making.

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 ...

I found the lack of answers on Google surprising, so I had to stumble around until I found it. Themes are located in: /Users/username/Library/Containers/com.apple.iWork.Keynote/Data/Library/Application Support/User Templates/ If you're not as familiar with the command line, you can open up Terminal and simply run this to get all your themes copied to ...

I had this issue too. Whenever I used an Apple ID that hadn't previously downloaded iWork I wasn't able to download the free version on 10.11. I even tried this workaround. What did work was getting access to a 10.12 Mac. Downloading Pages, Numbers and Keynote. The apps were now associated to that Apple ID. I then went back to the 10.11 Mac's, signed in ...

There is no iCloud-enabled version of iWork '09 on the Mac as of yet. Right now the way to save to iCloud from the Mac iWork apps is through the website. Enabling iCloud for iWork for Mac is a bigger deal than I think most people realize. We've still yet to see any sort of UI for saving documents to iCloud on a Mac. So, for example, in iWork, will you see a ...

I figured it out. The method is called =SUMIF(). I am so happy. :)
