iWork for iCloud updated

Apple on Tuesday released an update for iWork for iCloud. Each application received some new features and there are some features common to all of the apps. Changes implemented today include:

  • Pages for iCloud now remembers your last used document settings including zoom level, show/hide format panel, show/hide guides, and more.
  • Numbers for iCloud now remembers your last used document settings including zoom level, last selected sheet, show/hide format panel, show/hide guides, and more.
  • Keynote for iCloud now remembers your last used document settings including zoom level, last selected slide, show/hide format panel, show/hide guides, and more

Today’s update also includes the following improvements across all apps:

  • Suggests your most recent screen name when you open a shared document
  • Includes tips on how to cut, copy and paste using keyboard shortcuts when you right-click on objects
  • Includes the ability to right-click to mask images

You can get access to all of the features by signing into your iCloud account.

    I’m pleased at how often they are updating and adding (re-adding) feature to the iWork apps.

    But I spent some time this past weekend trying to figure out how to resize an image within a table cell (I was creating address labels with a logo). An hour or so later I found that Pages doesn’t have this basic feature yet. Sigh. :-/

      My suggestion is to use guides instead of cells if you want to create a grid of labels in Pages. In Pages 5, tables are functional spreadsheets rather than a generic tool for arranging items on the page into rows and columns. Guides are much better suited for arranging objects on the page.

        Ok, that’s good to know.

        I had simply downloaded the Avery 8160 address label template and used that. Maybe I was doing something wrong there. In any case, Word on Windows saved the day. :-)
