Pages '09 brings that special Apple touch to an area of computing that's been long overlooked - word processing!
As a style-based text application, Pages '09 makes it easy to create visually compelling word documents that are easy to edit, get your point across, and look great! More than just a basic text editor, Pages '09 is a complete page layout and document formating program. Make a business card, and envelope, a brochure, or a complete book ... all of these are easy to create with Pages '09.
In this tutorial you'll learn everything you need to know to make professional text documents. All aspects of formating and laying out text are clearly covered. You'll even explore advanced page layout skills like embedding images and wrapping text around them, adding charts and graphs, and working with other common text document types including PDFs and Microsoft Word documents.
This is a comprehensive tutorial, but you don't need to watch the entire show. Use the detailed menus and keyword search functions to quickly find items of interest. For a full list of this tutorials topics, see the Outline tab.
Very interesting course. It is amazing what this software can do. It is simple to operate. The instructor made it easy to understand.

Excellent tutorial. There's a lot of pro info on offer here and you'll probably want to come back to this tutorial again and again. Will appeal to web based business users or domestic users alike.

I learned a LOT in this video but not enough.
I am clueless on how to create my own template.
I am clueless on how to setup a document with page bleeds.
This course is great for beginners but I need more advanced topics - especially on how to make my own templates.
Overall I am happy, just wanted a broader range of Pages.

I haven't watched all of this video but have found it very good at explaining many of the small sometimes hard to follow features which sub menus often show. Very worthwhile and recommended.

I have been reading on Pages 09 and have learned a few new things. One, It is very simple to run. I have not looked at Keynote or numbers yet.
All in all, a good teaching program

I've just finished the Pages tutorial. Overall I was pleased and learned things I did't know. As usual the tutorial covered areas in great detail and was very helpful even for an experenced Mac User.
However, I feel that the tutorial did not cover the complete Pages package as you have in other tutorials.
I was disapointed that you didn't cover the various templates in more depth. For example; Mail Merge is a great mystery. Also I'm having trouble converting Letter Head and Fax Cover templates for my own use.
Also, the creating, saving and using my own templates is still a mystery.

Being a switcher to Mac I found the training fantastic. It starts at the very basic and take you a long way into advanced concepts.
I look forward to buy more trainings from MacProVideo to get me up to the speed.
Highly recommended to everyone.

Core Pages '09 was a very useful tutorial for me. I knew some of the basics, but going through the entire tutorial extended my knowledge. It also made me more appreciative of just how good an application Pages is for basic word processing.
