TUTORIAL: Let's learn Pages, the "made in" Apple word processor for Mac! Part 2: Lo ...


Pages, the word processor for Mac developed by Apple. In this series of tutorials we see together to take the first steps to become experts! Part 20: Finding an archived version of a document

If you have saved archived versions of a document on Mac OS X v10.7 (Lion) or later, you can browse the archive to identify any previous version you wish to restore or use as a reference. After identifying the archived version you want, you can restore it as a fully editable copy, or you can extract only the text, images or document settings that you want to use again.

To browse archived versions of the document:

Open the document for which you want to access older versions and hold down the pointer on the name of the document at the top of the Pages application window.A triangle appears.

Click on the triangle and choose Search in all versions.

The view changes to show snapshots of all saved versions of the document moving away from a background of stars. A timeline along the right side of the screen indicates when the foreground version on the right has been saved.

3 Drag the selection handle along the timeline to go back in time and search for old versions of the document.

4 When you find a version you want to analyze better, click on its image.

The version moves to the foreground, where you can click on different documents to view them, select the elements of a page, open the inspectors and copy the objects or settings of the inspector.

5 Do one of the following:

  • To completely restore the previous version, click Restore when the version you want to restore featured. The restored document appears on your desk, replacing the last version you were working on before seeing previous versions (this version is saved in the timeline, if you want to recover it).
  • To restore only an object or an inspector setting from the previous version, copy the object or setting by selecting them and pressing Command-C, then click Finish to return to the desktop. Paste the object or setting in the location appropriate by pressing Command-V.
  • To compare the old version point by point with the current version, click Current document.

    To return to the desktop, click Finish.
