Management has now bought herself an iMac and is trying to produce a small newsletter for her club and cannot find how to link text boxes in order to overflow text article from one page to another. Have searched web but cannot find how to do it. On a previous version I had on my iMac I had little blue arrows on the text boxes but can't find them on the latest version.....help is needed to restore household harmony!!

She's using the latest Pages 5 (free with new iMac and Mavericks) . She had seen the text box linking on my earlier version and was well pi**ed off when it wasn't on the new version and as hers is a brand new iMac it doesn't have the earlier version on it to revert to.

Well, if it was there in the older Pages, just use that. When the new Pages installed, it should have created a folder in Applications called iWork '09 and in there should be Pages 4.3. Apple recreated Pages from the ground up for Mavericks and realized that they would not have some features in it that people used, so they preserved 4.x for users this way.

Apple has completely re-worked Pages almost to the point where it's a brand new app. Unless she has access to the older version, the text box flow is gone; that and scripting among other things. Whether Apple restores some of those options in future updates to Pages 5 remains to be seen.

If the older version isn't on HER iMac, but it is on yours, you could, I suppose, in an emergency, if you had to, and only in the interest of domestic tranquility, perhaps, maybe, allow her to use yours to create the document?
