New in Pages '09
Now getting started is quicker. Writing is easier. And the results
are more impressive than ever.
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.
When your desktop is cluttered, it can be hard to focus on what
you're writing. Now Pages '09 lets you see your document
full screen. With a click, distractions instantly disappear and
your words become the most important thing on the screen. New in
Writing formulas. Organizing data. Creating charts. With new
features that are easy to use, anyone can be good with numbers.
With great-looking templates, easy-to-create formulas, and dynamic
tables and charts, spreadsheets suddenly make perfect sense.
What comes naturally to some now comes automatically to everyone.
Writing formulas is easy in Numbers '09. Over 250 functions are
included; just click and choose one. Along with each function is a
clear explanation of the formula and built-in help. You can even
assemble formulas using visual placeholders for each variable. Just
click a placeholder, then choose a value to include in your
formula. Formula List view
A spreadsheet contains many sheets, tables, numbers, and formulas.
How do you keep track of them all? With the new Formula List view,
you can see every calculation in your spreadsheet at one time.
Click the Formula List button in the toolbar to see the list, and
then jump to a specific formula. You can also search for formulas,
functions, or cell references. Table categories
When there are large sets of data in one spreadsheet, it can be
difficult to make sense of it all. With one click, you can now
group rows based on data in any column and create table categories.
Each category includes a summary row. Using just the summary row,
it's easy to collapse, expand, and rearrange the categories.
Add functions to each summary row - subtotals, averages, count,
miniumum, and maximum - to organize your data even more. Linked
Now Numbers, Pages, and Keynote work together to keep all your data
on the same page. Create charts in Numbers and paste them into
Pages documents or Keynote presentations. They'll stay linked
to the original data in Numbers. Even if the chart styles,
textures, colors, and fonts are different, the data is the same.
When you make a change to your data, update your linked charts with
a click. In Pages and Keynote, you can easily access your original
Numbers document or unlink the data at any time. New in Keynote
New animations and themes. Exciting transitions and effects. Even a
way to use your iPhone or iPod touch as a remote. It's a shame
you can't be in the audience.
Create your presentation in Keynote, and you'll be a hard act
to follow. Powerful yet easy-to-use tools and dazzling effects put
the show in slideshow. Magic Move
The new Magic Move feature lets you add a sophisticated animation
using a quick and simple process. Just select Magic Move as the
transition between consecutive slides with a repeated object - your
company's logo, for example - and watch as that object changes
location, scale, opacity, and rotation automatically. The result is
a beautifully executed effect that will amaze your audience and
you. Enhanced Theme Chooser
Now choosing the right theme for your presentation is easier than
ever. An enhanced Theme Chooser lets you resize theme thumbnails to
see the included fonts, colors, and textures more clearly. View all
the slide designs associated with a theme simply by skimming over
them. And Keynote '09 adds eight new themes to offer you even
more choices. Choose Showroom for a clean, polished feel or Kyoto
with its look of serenity. Open Microsoft Office files.
If someone sends you a Microsoft Word, Excel, or PowerPoint file,
you can open it in iWork. And it's easy to make Microsoft
Office documents look great, thanks to the powerful graphics and
formatting tools in iWork. Numbers also opens vCards, Open
Financial Exchange files, and comma-separated-value and
tab-delimited files. Pages also opens Rich Text Format (RTF)
documents. Save as Microsoft Office files.
Share your documents, spreadsheets, and presentations with anyone
on a Mac or PC. You can save everything you do in Pages, Numbers,
or Keynote as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, or PDF files. Keynote also
lets you save your presentation as a QuickTime movie or a PDF,
HTML, or image file. You can even send a Keynote presentation
directly to YouTube. System Requirements
