    Hi everyone,

    I'm a writer/editor/university instructor contemplating buying a new riMac.

    There used to be a feature in Pages 09 that let you view your pages as a grid on the screen. With a 27" monitor I was then able to view 8 pages or so at a time on the screen. This was extremely useful for marking papers or editing work.

    After Pages 09, however, I have not been able to find this option. Does it still exist? It seems such a waste of such a big beautiful screen to only see two scrolling pages at a time.

    Any thoughts would be great.

    No longer exit
    Those features are gone unfortunately. My suggestion would be to use Pages 09 if you still own it. If you still have it, you will find it in your Applications folder, and it will be in a folder labeled iWork '09.

    So lame. Would '09 still work with iCloud and all that?

    Yes you can save to iCloud in Pages '09, but it will be converted to the newer version of Pages after doing so. So it will leave you in the same situation unfortunately. Wish it was better news for you.
