Anyone know where the footnotes feature went in the new Pages for iPad? You used to be able to go to "Insert" then footnote. Now it seems to have been replaced by "comment." Can you still add footnotes?

Just tap somewhere to bring up the pop-up menu and select "Insert". Footnote is one of the options.

NB: you must just have the cursor as an insert point not have anything like a word or sentence selected

yes, I know exactly what you mean. That is the way it was on the old Pages. But in the new pages, the "insert" option is not there. It seems to have been replaced by a "comment" option which allows you to add a comment, much as you would in iBooks. I am needing to add a footnote and not a comment. I am wondering if they took the footnote option out?

I called Apple support. The footnote option in the new Pages is available through the "plus" button at the bottom right of the screen.

Still no success with the + button at the top right as recommended. There are only options for blocks of text. Glad to hear it still works on iPhone. But it really must be available for iPad.

My last post shows a screenshot from an iPad. The + menu is at the end of the keyboard

As stated by mrplow, its the + sign on the top right of the Keyboard NOT the top right of the page. The + top right of the page is still the Add Media, Graphs, Text, Shapes, Images and that sort of thing.

All good, we all miss the small things every now and then . . .

I must say though, i real love what Apple have done with the iWorks suite, how its the same across all platforms. Brilliant

Agreed. And when Pages etc are linked to iCloud, the synchronicity across platforms (e.g. iPad and iPhone) works fine and saves a lot of time and worry. It's fast too.
