Version 5.2
Review by Thalesian

Great for almost everything - I get told all the time by folks that if you want to be serious about documents, you have to use Microsoft Word. Typically, the (very serious) folks who tell me this have not been published. As someone who regularly uses Pages on Mac, iPad, and even iPhone to write and prepare scientific papers for publication, it is fine. I have had no problem exporting documents as either .doc or .docx for final versions of manuscripts to be published in journals like PLoS One. I can quickly import images from ArcGIS or R to add figure captions. Table creation is a breeze. Pages is a great tool, and document syncing makes my life a lot easier. I can jot down some new ideas and paragraphs on my iPad while on a plane, and then continue with a manuscript from my Mac at an office or at home. In short, if your primary needs for a word editor are a place to write and format text, or to add comments or track changes, Pages is fine. About the only limitation I’ve found is the Table of Contents (speficially, having multiples of these). But that is honestly the only setback I have had in the past 4 years of using Pages to prepare manuscripts for publication.

Version 5.5.3
Review by madman420

Apple needs to pull their head out - Apple software quality has gone downhill way too far. I’ve been a loyal Apple user for 30 years (yes, even when Apple sucked worse than now), but I’m finally considering ditching anything and everything I own that has that silly little apple icon on it, because it has become a symbol for frustration, poor quality, and inconsistency (things “just not working”). Just read all of the other one-star reviews if you want to know my feeling about this version of the Pages app. Apple has stopped listening to its customers, though. They don’t care about our needs—they only care about the most effective ways to pull cash out of our wallets without us noticing, because they refuse to provide the value for which we’d willingly pay. How dare you destroy the previous purchases of Pages ’09 by disabling it and replacing it with a crippled version? Apple should be sued! Customers didn’t give you permission to delete any software for which they’ve paid, or to remove features after payment. Apple doesn’t care about creatives anymore—they want consumers only!! They figure that companies like Adobe will provide all creative software necessary for Apple’s creative developers. Unfortunately, it means that Apple has abandoned us.

Version 6.3.1
Review by NapoleonIV

Still needs vertical alignment and non-contiguous text selection - 6.3 was a good update which added two good features, and I am glad that 6.3.1 has been made available to those of us who have not yet upgraded to High Sierra. However, in order for pages to be a real wordprocessor, it needs to bring back non-contiguous text selection, and it needs to support the alignment of horizontally input text along the vertical axis so that text can be centered in both dimensions.. It would also be nice if selecting a page from the thumbnail pane did not deslect whatever one had selected on another page, as this would make text slection over many pages easier. I am glad that book marks were added a few versions back, but at the moment footnotes cannot be bookmarked and therefore cannot be linked to. The following bug persists: when I move the cursor to the right side of the screen in full screen mode, which causes the format pane to appear, it is difficult to select a paragraph style from the dropdown menu because it only remains visible for as long as I click. instead it in necessary to double click. However, whenI select “Inspector, Format”, I am able to click and select a style. Please fix this. Keep the updates coming! I now have faith that apple is actually going to make this into a usable product.

Version 6.3.1
Review by thisissuzy

Can’t perform basic editing tasks - I was excited to see an update to Pages today. Alas, you STILL CANNOT SELECT NON-CONTIGUOUS TEXT. Like, seriously, Apple? What?! It’s one of the most basic document editing tasks, and I can’t do it in Pages. If I have 50 words I want to put in italics, I have to do each one separately. I can’t just hold CTRL and click on each word, then italicize. So stupid and the reason I rarely use Pages. Funnily enough, I CAN do it in Notes. You cannot bring that functionality back to Pages? Pages used to have this functionality, along with nearly 100 other features Pages doesn’t do anymore. Disabled your own software. Awesome. Thanks, Apple. I guess I shouldn’t complain because Pages is free these days, right? Sorry, I’m still complaining. Why can’t you IMPROVE the software to suit your customers’ ACTUAL needs?

Review by mithlogy

No facing pages. - I cannot use Pages because it no longer has facing pages. Imagine that, they REMOVED that feature. For many of us in publishing, facing pages is a requirement. If you only want to do elementary school papers, it would be fine.

Version 6.3.1
Review by nickelodeon-nitram

Fix the Header & Footer Sections Problem - I’d enjoy this app a lot more if it was easier to control the Headers & Footers, more specifically it needs to be easier for one to create a separate hooder on the front of the document from the rest. Instead you have to fuss around with the section options and try and format your document to Pages’ liking instead of to, say, your professor’s liking.
