Pages ‘09: The Toolbar

The Pages toolbar gives you one-click access to many of the actions you'll use when working with documents. As you work in Pages and get to know which actions you perform most often, you can add, remove, and rearrange toolbar buttons to suit your working style.

To see a description of what a button does, hold the pointer over the button.

    • To add an item to the toolbar, drag its icon to the toolbar.
