    hi Gary
    so here’s an attempt at becoming a Pro that doesn’t quite work as it should, maybe you have a comment on this. When saving a Pages document for the first time, sometimes I copy the title on the first page if I want the document to have that name. However, when I go into the Save dialog box if I try and use the shortcut CMD-V to paste the line I just copied, it doesn’t work. However, if I use the context menu (right-click on mouse) I can paste the text. Any ideas?

    nick: There shouldn’t be a difference. Are you sure the title text in the save dialog is selected? I just tried it and the Command+v worked for me.

    Another great video, Gary. As someone who loves playing with apps and exploring what happens when you try clicking on various things, I feel vindicated that I’m not just wasting time! Thanks! 😊

    Is there key combination that can copy an Image that is already in pages to the desktop? I have tried the CMD C & V as well as a Drag to the desktop but both did not work

    Michael: No, there’s no shortcut for that. I would copy, go to Preview and do File, New From Clipboard, and then save. I suppose if you already have Preview open, you could do keyboard shortcuts for Copy, Switch App, New, Close, type the name and press Return.

    Thanks, that works and it can be useful when loading Word documents using pages for editing images
