Intro to Pages on iPad
To create any document, you always start with a template, then modify it however you like. The templates are designed for specific purposes—like essays, newsletters, and books—to give you a great starting point for your work.
After you open a template, you can add your own text, replace placeholder graphics or delete them, and add new objects (tables, charts, text boxes, shapes, lines, and media).
To modify text and objects in your document, select the text or object, tap , then use the controls to change the font, color, or size of text; add a drop shadow to an image; and more. To add objects, tap , then tap a button for the type of object you want to add.
When you select an object (an image, shape, chart, table, or cell), then tap , you see formatting controls for the type of object you selected.
You can quickly change the look of the selected text or object by applying a new style to it. Tap one of the alternative styles to change the object’s look, or use the style options to customize the object’s appearance however you like.
