MacVoices #17124: Michael E. Cohen Takes Control of Apple’s Pages On All Platforms

Michael E. Cohen and Take Control Books have released a new version of Take Control of Pages that covers Pages on the Mac, iOS and the online/iCloud version. Since the last update, Pages has been revised to the point that this entire book had to be updated, along with every screenshot. Michael talks about Pages’ performance as both a word processor and an approachable page layout program, the capability to import and export files in RTF format, and round-tripping to Microsoft Word. Michael also has some tips on collaborating on Pages documents with others, working on them on different platforms, and how it integrates with the other components of Apple’s productivity suite, Numbers and Keynote.

Scholle has them all covered, talks about how Siri is useful on all three platforms, and why troubleshooting found a place in the book.
