Use the Pages app to create stunning, media-rich documents and books on your Mac. Open and edit Microsoft Word files, and track changes made by yourself and others. With Activity Stream, it’s easier than ever to collaborate on a Pages document and keep track of every change along the way.
Look good! Pages includes professional, ready-to-use templates for books, newsletters, reports, résumés, and more, making it easy to start your project.
Collaborate with Messages. You can send an invitation to collaborate in Messages, and everyone on the thread is automatically added to the Pages document. Click the Share button in the menu bar, make sure Collaborate is selected, and then click Messages. Choose the name of the group you want to add as participants.
Work together in real time. With Activity Stream, a detailed list in the sidebar allows you to see edits and comments made by collaborators on a Pages document. It's easy to follow each change, as well as who has been added to the spreadsheet or what file management updates have occurred.
All your formatting tools, in one place. Click the Format button in the toolbar to open the Format inspector. Select something in your document, and the formatting options for it appear.
Flow text around graphics. When you add an image to a text document, the text flows automatically around the image. You can fine-tune how the text wraps in the Format sidebar.
Become a publisher. Pages comes with book templates that let you create interactive books in EPUB format. Add text and images—and even a table of contents. When you’re ready, you can make your book available for purchase or download in Apple Books.
Start on your Mac, finish on iPad. You can keep documents up to date across all your devices when you sign in with the same Apple ID. So you can start composing on one device, and pick up where you left off on another.
Translate in a snap. Select the text you want to translate, Control-click the selected text, choose Translate, then choose a language. To translate text you’ve typed, click “Replace with Translation.” You can also download languages so you can work offline—go to the Language & Region settings in System Settings, then click the Translation Languages button at the bottom. Not all languages are available. See Translate on Mac in the macOS User Guide.
Tip: Turn on change tracking to see the changes you and others make to a document. Each person’s edits and comments are color-coded, so you can see who made each change. Choose Edit > Track Changes to show the change tracking toolbar.
