Pages (word processor)

As you write or at most when you first edit your text, select a line and click on the Format icon at top right of the Pages screen.

Apple Pages – A Good Replacement For Microsoft Word For Mac?

Click on it and you'll see options to change the selected Apple Pages to a different Style such as heading, caption, footnote and so on. There will be a tick next to the one Pages thinks this text currently is. You can choose from the list to change that selected text from Body to Heading but you can also do more —and it's a little confusing.


Click to close the dropdown and you'll see in the rest of the pane that there are options for changing the font face. So change the font, alter the color, add extra spacing between paragraphs, do anything you like. It will all affect the text you've got selected —but nothing Apple Pages.

How to Reinstall Apple Pages

There will also be an asterisk which means that this text is based on, say, the Body style but has been altered. You can now click back in the text to clear the selection and carry on working. If what you want to do is change the entire body text of the whole document to green, though, you have to do exactly the same thing —but then take another couple of steps. Select a small sample of text and make all of the formatting changes you want. Then while it's still selected, click again on the Style name at the top of the Format pane. Again there will be a tick next to the Style that Pages thinks this is but if you move your cursor down to that line, you'll get an extra icon showing a pop-out menu. Choose that and you get options including Redefine from Selection.

Click on that and now you've told Pages that you want all text like this to have these new settings. And since you've done this in Styles, that's exactly what you get. Instantly, the entire document changes to reflect these changes.

Once you've copied any text and you paste it into Pages, though, you find it doesn't look like Apple Pages text around it. You can paste it in, then select it all and use Styles to tell Pages what the text should look like. It's easier, though, to get Pages to do that work for you automatically.

The text you paste immediately looks like the existing text around it and Pages knows that it's Body or Heading and so on. This is sometimes mistakenly called Paste Special or Paste Plain. These are Word functions and if you're pasting text into a plain, unformatted document then you can think your bold, italic, green text is being converted into plain. Neither of the paste options in Pages will handle issues like converting smart quotes to dumb ones, though. So if you are compiling work in Pages that you intend to put on a website later, don't rely on Pages's formatting. Use a utility like TextSoap instead.


It's not just text Pages truly blurs the line between being a word processor like Word and a page layout app such as Adobe InDesign.
