iWork’s missing features

There has certainly been a lot of talk about features being removed from the latest (free) versions of iWork. It certainly did hurt the power users, but I think Apple was looking for a consistent user experience across devices. It will be interesting to see how many of these features return in future updates.

    One can hope.

    I haven’t had a chance yet to read about or use the new iWork on Mac or iOS. However, I had definitely gotten sick of opening Pages docs in iOS and being asked if I wanted to make a copy, so file/feature parity will be greatly appreciated by me.

    Is there a comprehensive, non rant-y, list somewhere of what features are missing? I’d like to know if anything I use is missing before I make the switch, not find out afterward.

      The apps are free upgrades and do NOT replace the existing iWork apps on your Mac. So download them and try for yourself to see if they have what you need.

      Nobody is going to have the list you’re looking for, because everyone cares about different things. For instance, if I hadn’t heard about AppleScript support being nonexistent, I would have never known because I don’t use AppleScript.
