Where’s my stuff?! (Edited)
shewhocomplains on 4/20/2018
I can’t access any of my documents. I love Pages and have used it for a long time, but the recent update has caused all my documents to “not exist” even though they obviously DO exist. 18 Documents. Gone. I can see them, but I can’t open them, delete them, or copy them because they “don’t exist”. They’re wasting space and I need this problem to be fixed! (Update: Not long after I reviewed another update fixed to problem so now all my stuff is working fine again. I don’t know what was wrong to make this happen but hopefully it won’t happen again.)
Deletes Handwritten Notes
Austin Greeley on 4/20/2018
If you plan on using this to write handwritten notes then don’t use it! It deleted my notes TWICE that I spent hours working on for class. I don’t have time to redo notes when finals week is coming up. If you’re a student, download word for free and use that.
Leave things alone!
Ghrickel on 4/20/2018
Updates are constantly downgrades. This one is one of the worst. I wish you would just leave things alone, or at least try them out before you send them out. The auto fill on the pages titles no longer work, it locks up, it is truly pitiful.
Is the problem only with the “pages” team or all of apple.?
chiowaguy on 4/19/2018
I was introduced to the Apple world with my iphone. I had been using Pages for various things but recently I can’t even search documents for specific words without it forcing me to replace the word I’m searching for. I’ve been able to use work arounds for other snafus but what’s the deal? Can I have my old Pages back, say from 4 years ago? I hope this pages mess doesn’t infect other Apple products. And particularly how my iphone works.
My I pads
Rafelito44 on 4/19/2018
I can’t opene on my iPad De application pages
One problem
wolflover2345 on 4/18/2018
I love pages but there’s one problem it wont let me write. Every time I try to write it goes straight to smart annotations. Fix this or tell me how to use pages correctly.
Freezes constantly
MusicCate on 4/16/2018
Help! I have reinstalled, quit and reopened, restarted my 1st generation iPad Pro - nothing has made a difference. Whenever I try to put a picture in a document, with or without image gallery, and sometimes when I open photos to select a picture, Pages freezes. (I have the latest iOS update.) It freezes every single time. Pages is the only word processing app I use. I need it to work as well as it used to! Help!
Used to be good
Jana124 on 4/16/2018
I have always liked pages til now. I open it click on add pics and it freezes! I can’t use it at all. I have deleted and reinstalled and still the same. Awful
Not Compatible
Filibuster Yagoobian 010258938 on 4/16/2018
Apple updated the app so much and Pages is no longer compatible with my iPad 4. If you have older devices that can't run iOS eleven, don't even try getting any of these apple apps
Can not insert images any more
qerzfvhyhkfsekcxbjour on 4/16/2018
After the last update the app starts to freeze every time when I want to insert images in the doc.
What in the World?
sjrawlings on 4/16/2018
Auto update and now we can’t even open a new document on my son’s iPad. Why update something that’s working just fine? Do they even test these updates before they post them? Super disappointed in an app that as working great.
Bytopi on 4/15/2018
Really? Hate it just hate it .
Freezes and crashes
WSUJerry on 4/14/2018
Every time I attempt to insert a picture from iPhoto this app crashes or freezes. Deleted and downloaded again. Same result. Never was an issue until 1-2 weeks ago.
Update slowed it down too much
Jmtjensen on 4/14/2018
Adding pictures is a nightmare after this newest update 😒 it freezes and takes forever to “think”
Fine by me
Bed iha wing on 4/14/2018
It does what it’s supposed to. I don’t see a problem.
EMM_05 on 4/13/2018
The most glitches app ever downloadedddd
App wastes time.
ALPerez1977 on 4/13/2018
I try to put a photo in my page, then it freezes for 20 seconds.
Apple Pencil is now useless!!!!
mo[re]vie[w] on 4/13/2018
Selecting, highlighting, scrolling, etc. no longer work with ‘Smart’ Annotations Beta.... Please fix ASAP!
KILLER update!!!
OurLadyOfGuadalupe on 4/12/2018
So I just had to do reports and requests on new forms created in Excel and Word. And now I am returning to the final reports that I had prepared in Pages. So I just tested out the annotations features in Excel and Word, replacing what used to mean printing something out scribbling on paper, and then transferring those scribbles into the computer. And now I transfer the document back-and-forth between my laptop and my iPad Pro, and I scribble on them with my Apple Pen. It a face-to-face showdown between Microsoft Word annotations and Apple Annotations, it’s no contest. Pages is a hands-down winner. The annotations made on the iPad with Pages actually travel with the text when you switch back to the laptop to edit with the keyboard. (so yes, when you delete a phrase, the next annotations are going to show up with the words you intended them to, not with the next paragraph down… Or AP… Or whichever direction!) What’s more, you can select annotations by groups rather than by each penstroke. The difference between having to try to select and delete every dot, dash, and stroke and being able to select entire words and notations at a time? There is no comparison. (Don't even try that with Excel. Seriously) And it gets better. When the annotation is used to indicate deleting a line, when I actually delete the line on the laptop, Pages is smart enough to delete that annotation without me needing to physically select and delete it. Can I say I’m super sad that this particular report that I need to complete quarterly will switch from Pages to Excel? I am at that. But…! Every other time I am trying to mark up and edit the document, I will be using Pages whenever possible. Sweetness!
Get rid of the Apple Pencil ad
mikes63737 on 4/12/2018
I already have an Apple Pencil and you cannot skip the ad the first time you open this app. How stupid!
Having trouble studing with those apps
umanwhatahellshit on 4/11/2018
While I'm studing with my iPad, ibooks doesn't hold my drawings in my pdf, it crashes and I loose everything. In pages, I've lost Lot's of stuff as well and it doesn't support certain characters and overall apple needs improvement in it's products to be really something for you to rely on studing.
Wouldn’t let me OneNote my senior thesis paper
leigh19911991 on 4/11/2018
Ligteray froze a document and wouldn’t let me open it even though the doc is saved, Apple help gave me no support and couldn’t solve the problem. Don't trust this app
Pencil for scrolling???
spearfishpastor on 4/11/2018
Hey Apple, thanks for taking away the scrolling feature for Apple Pencil on pages, and forcing me to use the pencil as a drawing tool only on my documents. (Sarcasm) Could you perhaps consider a setting feature where we could reuse the pencil as a scrolling aid for iPad? In case you’re not users of your products, I’d like to give feedback as one who uses them regularly... one of the nice features about the pencil scrolling when using an iPad is you don’t have to get fingerprints all over your screen when scrolling. Wouldn’t mind having that possibility again.
Can’t create any documents?
Luvit2thelimit on 4/11/2018
I’ve had this app for four years and have LOVED it. However, since the last update, I haven’t been able to create any documents. Not sure what to do about that...
Freezes up
Loreleihorn on 4/10/2018
Since the latest update Pages sometimes freezes in the middle of a page I am consulting and I have to shut down and restart my iPad to get the app to work again. Anyone else having this same problem?
Very disappointing
Zaphodbebblebrox on 4/10/2018
Since the last update the only thing I can use my Apple Pencil for is “smart annotations “. Normally I would use it for selecting or pasting, as I do that a lot in pages to create my document. My pencil allows me to precisely select exactly what I want. But, not now. If my pencil even gets close , I get the choice of drawing a picture or not. Apparently that’s the pencils only use now in pages, drawing on documents. Thanks guys, wildly helpful. I want my money back
It’s gone!
Jumpin 'Joey O on 4/10/2018
Pages has always met my word processing needs quite effectively, but ... When Pages upgraded to 4.0, I lost the ability to select a page by sliding my finger up and down the right-hand side of a Pages multipage document. Now, I am forced to perform this function manually, which can be a real pain especially in a document with a large number of pages. Also, document filing/storage needs additional level(s): I find that now for example if I write a letter-to-the-editor (LttE), I can file it in an area labeled “LttE” but can’t further define the storage area to say “Political LttE”, or “Religious LttE”’ or whatever.
Lane4David on 4/9/2018
I have pages on my iPad which means I have all my essays for school on it and it updated and I lost everything
Waste of time and doesn’t work
Vanessa1221 on 4/9/2018
I hate this app! I’ve trusted it and try to use it many times and every single time it just causes me 10 times more work and hassle. Please do not waste your time using this app!!!!!!!!
Give up already
Kpisme57 on 4/8/2018
This app has had a dozen updates in the last year and still can't work out the bugs. I haven't update due to these continuous problems. Surely someone there has to be smart enough to figure things out. Obviously not so far though.
1 Star Until...
Lindsay_S on 4/8/2018
Up until the most recent update I absolutely LOVED this app! Since the last update I’m having issues editing a document that I’ve been working on for weeks and weeks. I’m creating a table with pictures in it and every time I go to add a picture the app freezes and I have to close it and reopen it which I’m now having to do every couple minutes! If they can fix this problem I will change my rating back to 5 Stars, if not I’ve lost a lot of time working on this project that I don’t have any other way to do.
My documents won’t show up??
Lncgnvfhbvgnv1234566676546 on 4/8/2018
So I was just writing down some thoughts for my essay in a document, and when I tried to close out of it to go to one of my other documents, the whole thing froze up. So I went to the home screen and clicked on it again, and ALL MY DOCUMENTS WERE GONE?? I clicked recents and all my documents were there, but I couldn’t open them up. I’ve tried everything, I have no way of opening up those documents. FIX THIS!!! And if you respond, I don’t want to see some crap about “talking to the support team at this website” or whatever. I wanna see you guys saying you will fix this, because it’s beyond frustrating and I think others have this problem too. Thank you.
Was great. Now useless
mez93 on 4/8/2018
Apparently now Pages is a sketch pad only. It does not allow typing ip editing anything you paste
Can’t add photos.
dnaatwork on 4/8/2018
I can’t replace photos on my new iPad Pro. Specificity... when editing books.
Crushes :(
Celia Celia on 4/8/2018
I used to love this app. I mostly use it in my iPhone X but now when I try to attach a pic frizzes and then the app closes. Whyyy!??? Please fix!!!! I love this app is so easy to use
Could be better.
Helena Madsox on 4/7/2018
I use Pages for my independent work, but use Word and Docs for my school work- pages isn’t compatible with many systems, and my school can’t view my work. However, that isn’t too much of a problem. My main problem is that on random documents, the spellcheck systems will go insane and underline everything I’ve written as wrong. I have tried messing with the language settings, but the problems persist. I know it should be only a minor problem, but I try to pay attention to any mistakes I make, and seeing the red underline screams “mistake” in a way I can’t handle. If this keeps happening, I’ll probably just switch back to Google Docs.
Lock up when inserting photos.
HeavenlyScentPets on 4/7/2018
Love this app, hardly ever go to my laptop anymore. But what happened with latest update that now the app locks up whenever I insert a photo from my photo gallery. Dang, driving me nuts!!!
Adding photo causes crash
jhb_froglady on 4/7/2018
Every time I try to add a photo the app freezes then crashes. Every time! Hate this ‘new’ update!
Mr..Dessert on 4/7/2018
There is a problem when I try to drop a photo from my photo library, the whole app crashes, and it happens every time. It’s really bad.
Pages 4.0 freezes iPad touch screen when adding image
Soart on 4/6/2018
Update: you wanted an update, here it is....I’ll change my review when you fix the software. I (again today) created a brand new document, new photo, new screenshot, new image-save from a website. All images cause iPad touchscreen to freeze as soon as I try to add. I offered to send you the docs and photos I was using, but got no response. Fine. I’ll be here if you change your mind. And there will be no updates/changes to this review until the problem no longer exists. Original: Using iPad Pro, WiFi cellular, iOS 11.2.6 AND 11.3. Pages 4.0 freezes touch screen when you try to add an image to a document: can't choose image, can't return to the document body, can't use or dismiss keyboard, can't close document and return to main documents area. The ONLY thing you'll be able to do is hit Home, quit Pages, start over.....but with same results whether using old document, new document, old/new/different photo or screenshot. I liked Pages until recent 4.0 release, though it still seemed to lack important word-processing features and ease-of-use, but now can't get work done. If you need images in documents, don't waste your time with this until they fix it. Problem persists even after iOS update, recovery in recover mode, hard reboot, de- and re-install of Pages. Started with 4.0.
Does not work, template never opens
Hezmana on 4/6/2018
The last update has destroyed a Pages for me. Once you get to the choose a template page and do so, all I get is a spinning light wheel. I have tried, deleting, restarting and reinstalling with no success. Unable to create any kind of new document. Other reviews indicate this is now a not uncommon problem. 04-05-18: After a very long time with a helpful Apple support person the issue was resolved.
Update is horrible
Unhappy$$ on 4/5/2018
Keeps crashing
"can't be opened for some reason"?
KuroshitsujiLover666 on 4/5/2018
i have not been able to open the 3 most important documents in my Pages app for months, because they "can't be opened for some reason"? how in the world am I supposed to access them??!
Please add hexagons
StephCurryHater on 4/5/2018
Please add a hexagon shape to the + section Also it is really laggy if you want to delete even small words. There is about a two-second delay.
Used to be better than Microsoft word but now...
DiscoFilms on 4/5/2018
I used to LOVE this app. Now, it crashes all the time, takes forever to load, and won’t let me put in an image. I know it’s not my iPad because it’s new and this just started happening. Please fix so I can go back to loving this app!!!
Can’t even start a new doc
Super Gnikki on 4/5/2018
I usually use pages 2-3 times a week on my iPhone and haven’t had any major issues. Now I update it per Apple’s notification as soon as I open it and I cannot even begin a new document. Please don’t encourage me to update an app to a worse version. And an update ASAP would be great.
Cool Frozen Peas on 4/5/2018
New Update Almost Was Great
SpaceAero on 4/4/2018
I hope that Apple is able to fix annotations being blurry. I want to use Pages to take notes because of how well everything Apple is integrated, but all text I draw is blurry when doing it right on a document (when annotating). It is not very intuitive to have to select “drawing” each time you want to write something down. Annotations should just not be blurry up close, yet they are for some reason. Otherwise, all of the new features are awesome and I can almost ditch MS Office for iWork, but there are still some quirks here and there.
Doesn’t Work
Melvin445445445 on 4/4/2018
Go to start a new document and I encounter a spinning wheel and a message saying “Couldn’t communicate with a helper application. “Blank” can’t be opened right now. Pages couldn’t read file. “
This is a disaster - Documents have disappeared
Reader5600 on 4/4/2018
Not finding the answer to why all of my documents have disappeared from my iPad with the new version. NOT happy.
