Word Processing Key Features
Pages offers a wide variety of features to help you write, edit and format your documents. With Pages you can:
Formatting Help Just a Click Away
The context-sensitive Inspector window, meanwhile, puts all of the commands you need a click away. The Text Inspector, for example, lets you set alignment, pick font color, specify line and paragraph spacing and other common formatting chores. Youll also find tabs that reveal additional commands for List formatting (a great help for anyone creating outlines), Tabs and more.
In all, the Inspector window offers convenient access to formatting commands affecting the document as a whole, its layout (columns and sections), the size and positioning of graphics and how text wraps around them. Handy tabs even provide complete formatting control for tables and charts.
Writing with Style
Styles make it easy to control the way your text looks and to assure consistent formatting throughout your document. Want the first line of every paragraph to be indented an inch? Styles allow you to do that--and much more--automatically. In Pages, you can easily create and assign paragraph, character and list styles with a simple click of your mouse.
To get you started, all Pages documents for titles, headings, subheadings, footnotes, captions and more. And should you want to modify existing styles or create new ones, Pages makes that easy, too.
Turning the Tables
Like to include tables in your documents? Most of us do. Whether youre creating price lists, product specifications, photo collages, stock portfolios, schedules or progress reports, tables offer a great way to present information to readers. Pages lets you easily create beautiful and informative tables that you can fill with text, graphics or photos.
And lets not forget about charts. All about relationships, charts help us illustrate how much snow fell this year compared to last, how pulse rates change over time, how actual compare to budgeted costs. When it comes time to include a chart in your document, you can create it without leaving Pages. Just insert a chart and enter your data in the Chart Data Editor. You can easily create six types of charts, and Pages offers a complete set of tools to edit and format them.
The Tools You Need
If you create structured documents with multiple chapters or sections, facing pages and headers and footers that change throughout the document, Pages makes all the tools needed to create such documents readily available to you.
Students who write essays or scholarly papers will also enjoy Pages aplomb with footnotes. Whats more, Pages offers a facility for generating Tables of Contents thats remarkably easy to use. Just use the TOC tab in the Document Inspector to mark the paragraph styles you want to appear in the Table of Contents. Pages will track and index them all. Then, when youre ready, simply pull down the Insert menu and choose Table of Contents. Youll be amazed at how simply, quickly and effectively Pages manages this tedious operation for you.
Copy and Paste Styles with Ease
Its always nice to have options. Heres another neat way you can assign character or paragraph styles: copy and paste them.
Heres how simple it is: select a word or paragraph with the character or paragraph style youd like to copy. Then choose the appropriate command--either Copy Character Style or Copy Paragraph Style. Next step: select the text or paragraphs to which youd like the style assigned, and choose either Paste Character Style or Paste Paragraph Style.
Theres more. Not only will you find keyboard shortcuts to accomplish the above, but you can add buttons for copying and pasting styles to the Pages Toolbar. Then style copying and pasting will always be just a mouse click away.
Whats in the Text Inspector?
Of the ten panes available in the Inspector Window, youre likely to spend a fair amount of time in the Text Inspector. A veritable clearinghouse for text and paragraph formatting, the Text Inspector lets:
Dazzling documents. Amazing graphics, design, and layout.
Pages offers opportunities for formatting text, graphics, pages and entire documents beyond the capabilities of most word processing applications, providing all the tools you need to create stunning documents that look as if you had a team of designers at your beck and call. Most important, Pages makes it easy.
When youre using one of the Pages templates, youll find an assortment of complementary page layouts for your cover page, back page, feature stories and text pages. These complementary pages provide choices for three-column spreads, back pages designed for a self-mailer, layouts that include one large banner photo or numerous photos of different sizes.
And heres how easy it is to access these complementary pages: Just pull down the Pages pop-up menu in the Toolbar to see the complete list of page designs available for the template youre using. Select one and Pages will add it to your document.
Lets not forget that if a newsletter or brochure looks great, its going to attract attention and invite someone to read it. Photos, illustrations, call-outs, charts, graphics, tables--all emphasize what youre saying, help move the eye down the page and delight the reader, as well. After all, words and pictures form a complete package--thats just what Pages lets you create.
A beautiful package. Say, for example, everyone sits huddled around the iMac G5 to create a family newsletter. Its become a tradition. You each contribute an article or two, sharing stories about visits to the aquarium, hiking trips, snowboarding adventures, whats up in school--anything and everything youve all done together lately.
Thats a Wrap
For each new issue, you open the Family Newsletter template and decide which articles will go where. The iLife Media Browser makes it easy to import photos. And Pages lets you drop them into an existing placeholder or use its handy alignment guides to place them precisely
Tantalizing templates. Create eye-catching page turners.
Whether you keep a journal, teach a class, manage a restaurant, send out faxes, write term papers, circulate your resume, create brochures for your home business or publish a newsletter for a non-profit organization, Pages offers dazzling templates. As easy to use as they are beautiful to read.
Forty Professionally Designed Templates
Each time you create a new document, the Templates Chooser dialog provides ready access to more than 40 professionally designed templates. And we havent left anyone out.
Youll find templates to use at home--for journals, resumes, invitations, and stationery (complete with envelopes, in fact). Templates students and teachers can use at school--for term papers, quizzes, lab notes, syllabi.
Run a business? Pages comes with templates that let you create a wide assortment of highly polished documents, including brochures, catalogs, data-sheets, flyers, white papers, invoices, stationery--even restaurant menus.
And anyone who has found it particularly challenging to publish a newsletter will find the Pages newsletter templates an absolute treasure. Like other templates in Pages arsenal, newsletter templates come in matched sets with up to ten coordinated page designs, common design elements that tie pages together and template-specific paragraph and character styles.
Easy to Use. Lovely to Behold.
Adding a new page to your document is as simple as clicking the Pages button in the Toolbar and selecting the type of page you need: a Feature page with four columns to begin a new story; a three-column spread with a sidebar; the Back Page with room for credits and a large space to acknowledge new donors; even a Mailer, ready for addressing.
Pages makes it just as easy to replace the copy, photos and diagrams that serve as placeholders in template pages. A single click will select an entire paragraph, letting you type in place and preserve formatting. Or you can copy and paste in several paragraphs or pages worth of text. Pages will take care of the rest, adding as many pages as needed to accommodate the text, automatically flowing it from one column to the next.
Browse and Replace
Thanks to the built-in Media Browser, you also have access to all the digital assets available to you in iLife. Photos are a natural for printed documents of all types, and the Media Browser puts your entire iPhoto library at your disposal. Peruse albums, books and slideshows and even use the handy Search field to find photos by keyword or title.
And when you find a photo you want to include in your newest publication, simply drag it from the Media Browser and drop it into your document.

Thanks to the flexible and beautiful templates that come with Pages, you have practically endless creative possibilities to explore.
Templates that Click
In Pages, youll find templates for a variety of purposes and occasions. Beautifully designed, the templates offer an easy way to create compelling documents. Paste your copy into the text placeholders; drag and drop digital photos or graphics into image placeholders. Use the more than 40 Apple-designed templates included with Pages:
We live in a highly collaborative society. Some of us work on a Mac; some, on a PC. We use many different applications and create all sorts of documents. And, of course, we trade them back and forth. Designed for just this type of interactive environment, Pages offers a high degree of compatibility, letting you easily bring information in to develop and enrich your documents and making it easy for you to export and share your finished work with others.
Imports like a Champ
Whether youre creating a resume, preparing a business plan, designing a newsletter for your photography club or writing a term paper, you may have information youd like to appear in your next Pages document that already exists elsewhere. It could be a series of columns from a spreadsheet. An illustration or call-out youve created in Adobe Illustrator. Or perhaps an entire document written by someone else in another application. Maybe not even on a Mac.
Not to worry. Pages supports industry-standard graphic formats--GIF, JPG, TIFF, PDF and PSD--and deftly handles documents created in AppleWorks, Microsoft Word and other word processing applications.
Simply Opens AppleWorks and Word Files
In fact, heres how easy it is to open an AppleWorks or Word document in Pages: find the document youd like to open and drag it onto the icon for Pages in the dock or on your hard drive. If you already have Pages running, you could also simply pull down the File menu and choose Open. The dialog lists AppleWorks, Word, Text Edit and documents saved in Rich Text Format (RTF), making it, once again, easy to select and open them. And, by the way, those Word and RTF documents could be PC documents. Pages doesnt care.

Complete packages, the themes offer color-coordinated templates that let you maintain a consistent look and feel throughout your presentation.

Youll also find tools to help you introduce the unexpected into your presentation. Hollywood has long used animation techniques for title sequences. Entertaining, the effects keep our eyes focused on the screen, effectively holding and directing our attention. Like to use the same techniques in your presentation? You can. Keynote lets you easily assign studio-quality animation effects to both individual characters and words, offering control over timing, direction and bullet grouping.
Create animations faster than ever with advanced control over the entry, exit, motion and timing of objects.
And when it comes to adding rich media to your slides, Keynote makes it extremely easy.

Browse through iPhoto albums, books, slideshows or the entire library; play movies right in the browser; preview any song or spoken recording you have in iTunes.
The Right Tools for the Job
Found the item youd like to add? Just drag it from the browser and drop it on your slide. Keynote provides a complete arsenal of positioning tools to help you precisely place any object. Tools include horizontal and vertical rulers, alignment guides and a Metrics Inspector Window you can use to change the size, position (to the pixel) or angle of objects you place on a slide. Talk about control.
Mask Your Photos Without Leaving Keynote
Have a great photograph that you want your audience to see only a portion of? Mask it using the tools Keynote provides. Completely non-destructive, these virtual frames help you focus attention on that element in the photo that best illustrates the point of your slide.
Present with Confidence
Would you like to present your slideshow with total confidence? Got you covered. Keynote lets you easily configure two separate displays. The one your audience sees. And the one you see on your laptop. Purely for your own use, your screen can be set up to fit your needs. Display the current and next slide, slide notes, a clock and a timer. Or any combination. Keynote gives you all of the information you need to stay on track and on time. You have your talking points at hand. You know whats coming next. Youre in control and exude confidence, an attitude your audience cant miss.
Present Even When Youre Not There
Keynote 2 now lets you create self-running, interactive slideshows. Assign links to any graphic that will take someone another slide, to a web page or even to another Keynote file. Set document-level attributes like auto play on open or even assign an audio track to the whole show directly from your iTunes library.
