iWork for iCloud (Pages changes 001)

In keeping true to its promise of bringing back most of the missing features pulled from its iWork for iCloud web apps following a major rethinking of the productivity suite, Apple on Tuesday rolled out another refresh to web-based Pages, Keynote and Numbers apps.

Features enabled across all three web productivity apps include tips on how to cut, copy and paste using keyboard shortcuts, the ability to right-click to mask images and suggestions for your most recent screen name when opening a shared document.

Jump past the fold for per-app specifics…

As first reported by Jim Dalrymple of The Loop, Apple has implemented the following changes to iWork for iCloud apps:

  • 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

In addition, every web app has gained the following:

  • 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

Apple last month updated iWork for iCloud with interactive charts, improved collaboration features and other nice-to-haves (and earlier, in April, with Retina support and other improvements).

You should see today’s changes live after logging in to iCloud.com using your Apple ID.

I should point out that the web-based apps had not been updated in my account at post time. That being said, don’t panic if you don’y see the changes yet as these things need some time to propagate.

It’s interesting that iCloud versions of Pages, Keynote and Numbers still carry the beta tag.

    Ugh. Still no RTL support

    It’ll probably stay that way until the web apps have the same features and functions as the OS X and iOS apps…
