1: Grab the app
Search for ‘Pages’ in iTunes and purchase and install as normal. £5.99
may seem expensive for an iTunes app, but it is in fact very good value
for a word processor with so many features.
2: Have a look around
Pages is so obviously visual in the way it is designed that you could just
have a wander around the icons and start typing, but the best place to
start is the pre-loaded user manual.
3: Create your first document
In the first screen tap the ‘+’ at the bottom and then tap ‘New document’.
This will bring up a screen with a choice of templates. You can choose
anything from a blank page through to a party invite.
4: Test the options
Type a few words and then check the formatting options at the top. Select
words by tapping and holding then use the icons to format the text. Click
on the ‘i’ for further options such as text colour.
5: Delve deeper
Other options include a document setup wizard and a quick tap of the
picture icon lets you insert an image. Drag an image anywhere in the
document and the text will automatically reposition around it.
