Choose a great design. Write some clever words. Drop in a few images. That’s how you create everything in Pages. It all looks so impressive, it’s hard to believe it’s so simple.
A great place to start.
Right from the beginning, you have a beautiful way with words. Choose from 16 templates for flyers, posters, letters, resumes, reports, invitations and more. The fonts, colours and backgrounds in each template are perfectly coordinated. Just find the one you like, then make it your own. Tap the placeholder text and write your own words, drop in your own photos and add some graphics. Pages makes you a writer one minute and a designer the next.
Writing comes naturally.
Pages is all Multi-Touch, so writing feels natural and fun. The landscape view on iPhone and iPod touch lets you type at top speed using both thumbs, while Smart Zoom automatically zooms in on your text while you work. The page navigator shows you thumbnails of every page, so you can quickly get anywhere in your document. With dictation on your iOS device, all you have to do is tap the microphone button on the keyboard, speak your words out loud and watch them appear in your document.2 It’s never been easier to write a letter or jot down some notes.
Pages isn’t just about writing. It’s great for graphics, too. With a tap, insert photos and movies from your Photos app. Mask images, apply reflections and add picture frames so photos really stand out on the page. Add impressive 3D charts and dynamic tables to illustrate your points. Create shapes like stars and polygons and use shadows to make them pop. Drag to resize an object or image, pinch to rotate it and drag to move it anywhere you want on the page — alignment guides help you put it in the right place. Text automatically wraps around an image, even as you move it around.
Pages automatically saves as you go.
Pages saves your work — while you work. So you can write on the go and pick up where you left off the next time you open your document. Even if you’re on another device. And you can undo any change you’ve made, no matter when you made it.
Pages is a powerful word processor, with all the features you’d expect. So you can write just as brilliantly on your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch as you do on your Mac.
Amazing writing style.
Your writing looks great from the start with the default styles in every template. But with a tap on the ruler, you can change fonts and text alignment. Tap into the Styles pane to make titles, headings, body and captions match throughout your document.
Format with a tap.
Advanced text formatting is easy in Pages. Tap the Info button to tweak line spacing and turn text into columns. Drag to adjust tabs, paragraph margins and page margins. And add headers, footers and page numbers.
Change you can see.
Pages documents welcome your feedback. And other people’s feedback, too. With the Change Tracking feature built into Pages for iOS, you and anyone you work with can revise a document many times and never lose track of who said what. Import a document from Pages for Mac or Microsoft Word with changes already tracked and see them right on your device. Make more edits and export the document back to your computer — your body copy changes are all tracked.
Lists. Lists. And more lists.
There’s a long list of ways Pages can help you make lists. Choose bullets, numbers or characters and the list forms automatically as you type. Reorder your list by dragging a bullet or number. Use the list tools in the Info pane to change the style at any time.
Every word counts.
If you misspell a word, Pages alerts you right away so you can correct it. Without leaving Pages, you can look up a definition in the built-in dictionary. And if you want to track every character, paragraph, and page, just turn on Word Count. You can even add footnotes and endnotes.
Find the right words.
And replace them.
Make fast edits — such as correcting capitalization or changing proper names — with Find and Replace. Just type the word you want to replace and Pages finds every use of the word in your document. You can replace words one at a time or all at once.
iCloud automatically keeps your Pages documents up to date across all your devices. So you don’t have to.
Your latest draft. Always with you.
With iCloud, you can create, edit and access your Pages documents on whatever device you’re using. You don’t have to manage your documents in a complicated file system or even remember to save them to a special folder. They’re just there, already up to date on your Mac, iPad, iPhone or iPod touch. So you can create a document on one device and finish editing it on another. Share files with another Mac running Mountain Lion. And easily move documents between your PC and your iOS devices via icloud.com/iwork.1 Learn more about Documents in the Cloud
