A MacBook Pro with the Pages template chooser open on the screen. The All Templates category is selected on the left and pre-designed templates appear on the right in rows by category.

Get started with a template

All documents begin with a template — a model you can use as a starting point. You can create word processing documents, like reports and letters, and page layout documents, like posters and newsletters. Simply replace the template text and images with your own content.

Intro to word processing and page layout documents

The toolbar with buttons to add tables, charts, text boxes, shapes and media. Shape is selected and shows the category Activities selected in the sidebar on the left and shapes on the right.

Add photos, shapes, tables and more

Add objects like tables, charts, shapes and media (images, audio and video) to your document. You can layer objects, resize them, and place them anywhere on the page.

Intro to images, charts and other objects

Customise every detail

Change the look of your text, add a drop shadow to an image, fill shapes with colour and more — you can modify everything in your document. You can even wrap text around images, link text boxes so the text flows from one box to the next, or use mail merge to automatically personalise multiple documents.

Intro to Pages

The template chooser with Books selected in the category list on the left, and book templates in portrait orientation on the right.

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.

Collaborate in real time
