Using Styles In Pages

You can use paragraph and character styles to manage the attributes of your text in a Pages document. You can use the built-in styles, or create your own. When you change some text, you can create a new style and then use it throughout your document. You can then update the text that uses that style in one place.

    Hi Gary, is this applicable only to the new Mavericks Pages or can this be done on older versions of Pages (like earlier this year)?

      It works very differently on older versions.

    Hi Gary, I have just bought a new MacBook Air and have the latest version of Pages installed now. in my older version ('09) you could assign a hotkey to a particular paragraph style. Is that still possible? or has this option now been removed?

    I am writing a book with many photos included. There doesn't seem to be a facing pages option in Pages 5 so that the book can be bound. When I opened the file in Pages 5, text, photos and formatting were a mess and there weren't any facing pages. Is there a way to fix this or will Apple be including Facing pages again?

      You will want to keep using the old Pages if you want to do a book like that. That's why Apple allows the old and new versions to co-exist on your Mac. Until this start-from-scratch version has all the features you need, keep using the old version. You may also want to look at Apple's iBooks Author app.
