Pages is Snow Leopard’s Desktop Publishing application. Every visual masterpiece starts somewhere, and with Pages, the first stop in creating your document is the Template Chooser window. To create a new Pages document from scratch, follow these steps:

1

Double-click your hard drive icon and click the Applications entry in the Finder window sidebar. Double-click the iWork folder to open it.

The iWork installation program offers to add a Pages icon to your Dock. If you’ll be using Pages often, it’s a good idea to use this option!
