Bring back 'Facing pages' and perhaps I will start using it again. I did not buy a 27" iMac just so that I could scroll down single pages, Apple.


Microsoft Word allows me to have 4 pages on one screen. Your screen.


Fix it.

If they are starting the updates this quickly wouldn't it have made more sense to release a finished product? Updates re-introducing old/new features doesn't make sense to me. Was anyone really clamoring for a redesign of the iWork suite so badly that releasing an unfinished product was necessary?

It's their product and they know way more than I do about it.

Just an outside-in observation.:confused:

How about bringing back the ability to:

Add a page
Delete a page
Move a page
Duplicate a page
Copy a page

Shouldn't be too complicated... :(

Wow, that was fast!
I'm guessing they actually planned to start restoring the missing features in advance and not just in response to negative publicity.

For Jackie (as well as everyone else who gave this a thumbs up), I offer the following free advice (worth at least what you paid for it) as a former Apple engineer:

Stuff that's not in Radar is invisible.

My suggestion would be:

1. Go to developer.apple.com and sign up for a free developer account if you don't already have one (using your existing Apple ID).

2. Go to bugreport.apple.com and file a bug. Take note of its number.

Notes:
a) Make the scope of your bug as narrow as possible -- two different things may be assigned different engineers, different teams, different milestones, and it's frustrating to have to break things into pieces all the time as it makes bug reports confusing to read

b) If you get a response asking for more information, please answer it (so many do not)

c) System configs are wonderful things

d) Be polite

3. Go to openradar.appspot.com and add a description of what you filed. That way, other people can say, "Oh, yeah. THAT." And they can then write another bug report referencing yours.

When there are reports that have more duplicates than others, they tend to get higher priority.

Maybe one day they will actually add the ability to open a document which is password protected. Always seem to forget the simple things. :confused:
