Pages '09: The inspector window

You can format most elements of your document using the panes of the Inspector window, including text appearance, size and positioning of graphics, and much more.

Open multiple inspector windows to make working with your document easier. For example, if you have the Graphic inspector and the Text inspector open, you have all the text and image formatting options at your fingertips as you work.

Hold the pointer over buttons and other controls in the inspector panes to see a description of what the controls do.
