Word like Page View for Pages

I am a new iWork Pages user, and I was wondering if anyone knows a way to make the page view in pages more like how Microsoft Word does it.



I like how there are bars on each side of the page, I hope there is a way to do it in Pages.

Thanks

I've been a MS Word user since it first came out. The last version I really liked was Word 97. After that it was downhill in terms of bloat, performance and the last straw was the ribbon. So perhaps you can understand why I like LibreOffice or Pages better than MS Word. That being said, why don't you give it a chance. Once you get used to using the inspector instead of digging through a dozen ribbons looking for stuff, perhaps you won't care about making your Mac look like your PC.

You mean the Rulers? Go into Pages View menu and select Show Rulers.
