Tour the Pages Window

Before you dive into any real work in Pages, the desktop publishing part of the iWork suite of apps, take a look around the Pages window. You’ll find the following major components and controls:

  • Pages list: This thumbnail list displays all the pages you’ve created within your document. (For a single-page document, of course, the Page list will contain only a single thumbnail.) You can switch instantly between different pages in your document by clicking the desired thumbnail in the list.

  • Layout pane: This section takes up most of the Pages window — it’s where you design and edit each page in your document.

  • Toolbar: Yep, Pages has its own toolbar. The toolbar keeps all the most common application controls within easy, one-click reach.

  • Styles Drawer: This window extension allows you to quickly switch the appearance of selected paragraphs, characters, and lists. You can hide and display the Styles Drawer from the View menu or from the View drop-down menu on the toolbar.

  • Format Bar: This button strip runs underneath the Pages toolbar, allowing you to format selected text, paragraphs, and lists on the fly.
