Ex­pert ad­vice for iCloud

Col­lab­o­rate on Pages doc­u­ments

Mac Format - - CONTENTS -

Pages’ col­lab­o­ra­tion and com­ment­ing fea­tures are very good and very use­ful, but they haven’t been much cop if you’re work­ing with peo­ple who don’t have the app, or who don’t have a Mac. That can be a prob­lem, be­cause com­ment­ing and edit­ing plays a key role in many teams; sev­eral peo­ple might need to look over a press release, con­trib­ute to a news­let­ter, or re­view a doc­u­ment to en­sure it isn’t go­ing to land any­one in le­gal hot wa­ter. We can’t be alone in keep­ing a copy of Word handy for doc­u­ments that re­quire other peo­ple’s in­put.

Things have changed, how­ever. Re­cent im­prove­ments to the iCloud version of Pages en­able you not just to share doc­u­ments with peo­ple who don’t have Ap­ple hard­ware, but to col­lab­o­rate with them too.

In this tu­to­rial we’ll ex­plore two kinds of col­lab­o­ra­tion. First, we’ll dis­cover how to share doc­u­ments with oth­ers over iCloud, how to en­able com­ment­ing, and how those com­ments look on your Mac. Then we’ll dis­cover the ex­tra fea­tures that are avail­able when the re­cip­i­ent also has Pages for Mac – as you’d ex­pect, while col­lab­o­ra­tion works fine for non-Mac users, Ap­ple keeps the best stuff on the Mac.
