    Hi friends,

    So I'm getting used to using Pages instead of MS Word, but I still really don't like the way the page is displayed. I love how MS Word does it in View -> Page Layout format, where you see space on all sides of the page. The closest I can get to this in Pages is the "Show Layout" option, but then I get those annoying black boxes around my text.

    Anyone know a solution to bring "Page Layout" format to Pages? Thanks so much :)

    I guess I don't see the problem here. If you "Hide Layout," Pages displays the objects just as Word does, without boundaries.

    As you type past a single page, Pages will show the margins and page boundaries.

    The only thing special about what you did in Word is you sized the window so large it displayed a blue background. Pages is a little more efficient with screen space...
