Apple Announces It Will Reintroduce Missing Features to iWork for Mac

Apple has announced that it plans to reintroduce some of the features dropped from iWork for Mac.

The Pages, Numbers, and Keynote applications were recently rewritten from the ground up to be fully 64-bit and to support a unified file format between OS X and iOS 7 versions, as well as iWork for iCloud beta. However, in the process of updating the applications, numerous features didn’t make it into the initial versions of the new software.

In rewriting these applications, some features from iWork ’09 were not available for the initial release. We plan to reintroduce some of these features in the next few releases and will continue to add brand new features on an ongoing basis.

Some features in upcoming releases in the next 6 months

Pages
● Customize toolbar
● Vertical ruler
● Improved alignment guides
● Improved object placement
● Import of cells with images
● Improved word counts
● Keyboard shortcuts for styles
● Manage pages and sections from the thumbnail view

Numbers
● Customize toolbar
● Improvements to zoom and window placement
● Multi-column and range sort
● Auto-complete text in cells
● Page headers and footers
● Improvements to AppleScript support

Keynote
● Customize toolbar

● Improvements to presenter display
● Improvements to AppleScript support

In the meanwhile, Apple suggests users who need these features continue using iWork ’09 which can be found in the Applications > iWork ’09 folder.
