iWork 09 & iWork 13 Interaction

Date: 16th November 2013

Duration: 16:35

Show ref: SCOI0137

So iWork '13 is now with us after the long, long wait. A complete re-write with full parity of features across the Mac, iOS and the Web.

Excellent!

The only problem is that some features have had to be sacrificed to achieve parity at this first release. This is problematic to many people who rely on many of the advanced features of the iWork suite. Luckily, Apple have thrown a lifeline and kept the older versions of the applications available on the Mac, although not on iOS.

This tutorial deals with some of the issues of using the older versions of the iWorks apps to still access the removed features. A warning though - although this tutorial is in the iOS stream, it deals mainly with issues on the Mac but does have implications for iOS users.
