If you happen to have demo versions of Aperture and iWork laying around, install them and then hit the App Store. Apple then upgrades them to the full versions. Just sayin'.
You need to switch the system language to English and restart before you can do this. But other than that: it works. Also with older (package-)versions of iWork and Aperture installed.
Just take caution before using Pages 5. It will cripple existing documents if you use bookmarks, text box linking, citations, images within headers or footers. Make a backup from your documents first, then fool around. Better save than sorry :-) I learned the hard way.
Dirk, thanks, I did not notice. My system language is always English. Easier to understand than translations.
Jan, thanks for the warning. All my documents are rather simple. And he, who has not activated Time Machine, needs to be punished before a disk failure occurs.
It gets even more complicated than that.
For testing purposes I keep on the same MacBook Pro one Italian user and one English user. In Apple's infinite wisdom, the iWorks programs for the English user got updated whereas the Italian user is left unchanged and has so lost access to the updated web docs.
Please note they both share the same Apple ID
Can anybody explain this?
@Pieterjan: After updating, I am left with two versions of the iWork apps:
- the latest in /Applications/Pages.app etc.
- the old ones in /Applications/iWork '09/Pages.app etc.
Maybe your Italian account is still opening the old ones?
@Ole Bingo! I was just clicking on the old Pages icon that resides in my dock.
The upgrade has indeed installed a new Pages.app leaving the old one untouched.
Thank you for pointing this out.
updated both MacBooks yesterday: vowe is a good mother.
