by P. J. Connolly
2Pages 1.2 Adds Word Count
The new Word Count option is easily enabled from the Tools screen of Pages for iPad.
3Hard to Miss, Easy to Ignore
A running word count for the Pages document now appears at the bottom of the screen.
4Treat Multiple Objects As One
Grouping objects in a Pages document requires a bit of juggling; I found myself cradling the iPad in my thumbs to select objects with my fingers.
This release of Pages for iPad adds support for many cell-specific table options, including custom borders, type color and size, and image fills.
6Still a Few Glitches
Although font handling has improved, the font choices in Pages for iPad are still rather limited in comparison to the desktop version of Pages.
7Open Text Files from Mail
Its now possible to open text files in Pages from iPad from within an e-mail message, as seen in this view of the iPads Mail application.
8Document Sharing Now Available
Pages for iPad 1.2 adds the option to save a file to the Apple-hosted iWork.com service—currently in public beta—or to any WebDAV host.
9Share Many Formats at Once
The person uploading the document to iWork.com can password-protect the file, change the name, and select the available formats for download.
