    Hello

    I updated to the new Pages OSX app when it was released. However, I recently noticed one of my apps that work with Pages will not work with the new version. Is there any way to download the old version again?
    I have OSX Mavericks.

    thanks

    Nope, just find the iWork disk on craigslist or ebay.

    If the older Pages, etc. were on your computer when you downloaded the new versions, the install would have moved the '09 iWorks into a folder within your Applications folder. Check there first.

    I had it in that folder, but I removed it a month after updating for space purposes, and I had not figured out the plugin would not work.

    If you have a Time Machine backup, you could get it from there.

    And the easiest way to get the previous version (if you don't have a backup) is install 10.7 or 10.8 on an external disk, patch OS X to 10.7.5 or 10.8.5. Boot from that and install Pages from the App Store. Copy Pages into an iWork '09 folder on the Mavericks disk.

    So since pages 5.0 is not compatible with 10.8 the appstore will let me download pages 09 instead of forcing me to update to mavericks first?

    That is correct.
