It’s still an Export process, which works very well. I use Pages to proofread Word documents occasionally and export them with the tracked changes perfectly intact. No big issue. I also save a copy of the Word version to Files (in the same folder as the Pages version). All on my iPad with no hassle at all.
What does this mean? I use Numbers a lot, but I'm not familiar with this and can't find anything in the help.
Forms make it easier to enter data as one “form” represents a singe row of data points on a table. I still don’t really find them very useful and the main problem I have is that hidden cells still appear in your forms. At least you can rearrange your form list now so the hidden cells are on the bottom. But I hid the damn cells for a reason!What does this mean?

I would hope the price differential was for more that iWork! My point being that Apple gives NOTHING for free. It's all built into that "Apple Tax" that you pay when you purchase Apple.Very few people pick a Mac over a PC just so they can get iWork for free. There are other reasons for the Mac price premium.
It really does seem like scribble is for adding data only and not removing it. You can scribble out a whole word but that’s about it. I did find out that you can circle a word to select it. Still single characters are not possible.It’s amazing how much more robust and intuitive Newton was than iPad + Apple Pencil. After 30 years, Apple somehow managed to regress in this area. Compared to Newton, scribble is half baked and really confusing. As far as I can tell, I can’t delete a single character, deleting objects isn’t possible, I can’t select objects (I have to use my finger??), object recognition is more limited than Newton, I can’t easily convert handwriting to text, using Notes with pencil is confusing as hell, and on and on. Apple really screwed this up. All they had to do was adopt Newton’s gestures and UX.
As a long time Excel user, I’ve found that Numbers is fine for basic to slightly advanced tasks. It does “record” filtering, complex formulas, vlookups, hlookups, etc. It works very well with large data sets which is what I use it for primarily. It imports and exports to CSV. It has successfully imported every Excel spreadsheet I’ve tried it on. It does many things which I’ve never tried yet. I especially like its iCloud integration which, last time I checked, Excel did not have. And I really didn’t want to subscribe to Office 360.Pages and keynotes are fine and good alternatives to moffice suite. But i cant say the same for numbers.
still lacking a lot of compability imprivments with ms office which is the mainstream software of business world. Ms offices best feature is it is compatible with ms office.
it does not open excel files filtered coloumns.
Except Keynote is not dumbed down and it's far better than Powerpoint, and it's been this way for well over 10 years.Apple hasn't wanted Pages, Numbers and Keynote to be as complex as Word, Excel and Powerpoint because they wanted to make them easier to use. It's certainly true, Apple's versions are often dumbed down versions of Microsoft's productivity apps, but for so many people, myself included, that's just fine for what we need day to day for work or home use.
I stopped using Office several years ago and have used Pages and Keynote for preparing all my documents and presentations since then. I find them much easier to use then their Office equivalents (on my iPad). Obviously, each person’s experience will be different. (I don’t work with spreadsheets but I’ve been told that Numbers is not as good as Excel).
What happens when you then want to open it on Windows?
Mind pointing that out on a screenshot?
The scribble menu is not appearing When i double tap the cell with my pencil.
Single tap would just drag the content.
They were paid apps! They were 80 bucks... then reduced to $20 in the Mac and $10 in iPhone EACH...
Even iMovie and Garage Band you had to pay for them, then they made it free for new iPhones and Macs, later (only a couple of years ago) for older devices free as well.
I want to use forms but my documents are shared with my employees and forms won’t work with shared documents. How stupid is that.Forms make it easier to enter data as one “form” represents a singe row of data points on a table. I still don’t really find them very useful and the main problem I have is that hidden cells still appear in your forms. At least you can rearrange your form list now so the hidden cells are on the bottom. But I hid the damn cells for a reason!
