When you select a photo, shape, or table on the page, the Format Bar displays tools to adjust the images. And while you write, Pages can automatically format lists with bullets or numbers, check your spelling, proofread your document, and generate a table of contents.

Fine-tuning your document is easy, too. You can add headers, footers, footnotes, and bookmarks with a few clicks. Insert section, layout, and page breaks from a pull-down menu. And the word count is visible at the bottom of the page--just click the total to see details including the number of characters, lines, paragraphs, and more. When it comes to word processing, streamlined and smart come standard in Pages.

Powerful page layout
Do-it-yourself design.
Create your own design from a blank canvas--Pages makes page layout easy. Choose fonts and add images, graphics, tables, and 3D charts. Powerful graphics tools let you resize and rotate photos, apply reflections and shadows, add picture frames, and remove backgrounds from images with a simple point and click. You can even control the text: how it looks, how it flows, and how it wraps around images. Move everything around on the free-form canvas until you see the layout you envisioned.
