00:00:00,200 --> 00:00:03,069
Getting started with Pages '09

2
00:00:03,069 --> 00:00:05,372
Welcome to Pages '09

3
00:00:05,372 --> 00:00:08,441
When you launch Pages you will
see the template chooser

4
00:00:08,441 --> 00:00:12,345
where you can choose from two categories
of Apple design templates

5
00:00:12,345 --> 00:00:15,515
for word processing or page layout.

6
00:00:15,515 --> 00:00:18,418
We'll start with the blank
word processing document

7
00:00:18,418 --> 00:00:20,820
so we can just start typing.

8
00:00:23,056 --> 00:00:27,293
Pages has all the tools you expect
in a word processing application.

9
00:00:27,327 --> 00:00:30,964
You can apply styles to
your text by selecting it

10
00:00:30,964 --> 00:00:37,971
then clicking the Paragraph icon 
in the Format bar and choosing the style.

11
00:00:38,038 --> 00:00:41,374
You can then adjust your text
with tools in the Format bar

12
00:00:41,374 --> 00:00:44,077
so its exactly the way you want it.

13
00:00:48,314 --> 00:00:49,582
After you make your changes

14
00:00:49,582 --> 00:00:52,585
you can easily redefine
the style with a click

15
00:00:52,585 --> 00:00:56,056
such as the Heading style so when
we add more headings later

16
00:00:56,056 --> 00:00:58,892
they all look the same.

17
00:00:58,892 --> 00:01:01,494
There are many ways
to add photos to your document

18
00:01:01,494 --> 00:01:04,931
including just dragging one in
from your desktop.

19
00:01:04,931 --> 00:01:06,566
When the photo is selected

20
00:01:06,566 --> 00:01:09,102
the content sensitive Format bar changes

21
00:01:09,102 --> 00:01:11,504
so you can easily make basic adjustments

22
00:01:11,504 --> 00:01:16,109
such as setting the photo
as Inline so that it flow with the text.

23
00:01:16,109 --> 00:01:18,645
You can then move your photo.

24
00:01:18,645 --> 00:01:23,650
Resize it by dragging the corner,

25
00:01:23,650 --> 00:01:28,121
and add a picture frame from the Format bar.

26
00:01:28,121 --> 00:01:32,125
The Format bar includes
the basic tools you use most often.

27
00:01:32,125 --> 00:01:36,196
To access the complete set of tools
use the Inspector

28
00:01:36,229 --> 00:01:40,200
that has everything you need
to make your document looks perfect.

29
00:01:42,602 --> 00:01:45,004
When you want focusing on your writing

30
00:01:45,004 --> 00:01:46,706
you can use full screen view,

31
00:01:46,739 --> 00:01:49,943
which remove all distractions.

32
00:01:49,943 --> 00:01:53,713
In full screen view you still have access
to all the tools you need

33
00:01:53,746 --> 00:01:58,818
simply move your mouse and
the tools you want automatically appears.

34
00:01:58,818 --> 00:02:03,356
Creating a great looking page
layout document is easy too.

35
00:02:03,356 --> 00:02:07,060
In the Page layout templates
you can find what you want use.

36
00:02:07,127 --> 00:02:09,562
You can also zoom the view
in the template chooser

37
00:02:09,596 --> 00:02:11,698
to see bigger tiles,

38
00:02:11,698 --> 00:02:14,334
and when you move your pointer over the tiles

39
00:02:14,334 --> 00:02:18,037
you'll see a preview of the page
styles included in the template.

40
00:02:18,805 --> 00:02:21,641

just double click it

41
00:02:21,641 --> 00:02:23,810
