    I find the full-screen mode in Pages much easier to work in than the normal editing window. Is there a way to force Pages to open in full-screen? Manual hacking is no problem.

    Hacking might not be necessary. You might try launching Pages via an AppleScript:

    Code:
    tell application "Finder"
    	activate
    	open application file "Pages.app" of folder "iWork '09" of folder "Applications" of startup disk
    end tell
    
    delay 10
    
    tell application "Pages"
    	activate
    	set full screen of window 1 to true
    end tell
    If you've got a really fast Mac, the 10-second delay might not be necessary. The file path for the app might be different for you too. I just hit record and then copy/pasted that into the script.
