Pages is both a streamlined word processor and an easy-to-use page layout tool. It allows you to be a writer one minute and a designer the next, always with a perfect document in the works.
Creating great-looking documents is simple with Pages. At the top of the page, the contextual format bar lets you do the basics — formatting text and adjusting images — with just one click. View and choose fonts with the “what you see is what you get” (WYSIWYG) font menu. Change text size and color. Adjust line spacing and paragraph alignment. Apply character and paragraph styles. When you select a photo, shape, or table on the page, the format bar displays tools to adjust the images. And while you write, Pages can automatically format lists with bullets or numbers, check your spelling, proofread your document, and generate a table of contents.
Fine-tuning your document is easy, too. You can add headers, footers, footnotes, and bookmarks with a few clicks. Insert section, layout, and page breaks from a pull-down menu. And the word count is visible at the bottom of the page — just click the total to see details including the number of characters, lines, paragraphs, and more. When it comes to word processing, streamlined and smart come standard in Pages.
