I keep losing documents in Pages, I start a document and after opening and closing it several times to work on it suddenly I get a message that the document couldn't be opened because:
The required index.xml file is missing. What's going on here, am I retarded or is Pages a flawed program?

Personally not very happy with Pages of late and gone to MS Office esclusively.

However have a read of this thread which may help:-


iWorkTipsnTricks :: View topic - "Missing index.xml file"

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

Sounds to me like you have upgraded to Mavericks and auto-upgraded your iWork software to the latest and cruddiest Apple versions.

In which case you have both Pages 5.2 and Pages '09 on your Mac and are alternately opening one or the other.

Pages '09 can not open the Pages 5.2 files. In fact even Pages 5.1 can't.

Apple cleverly made the .pages extension the same on all versions, even though the format is completely different in the latest version.

Pages 5 is best avoided. Apple removed over 110 features and added a stack of bugs.

You can export your Pages 5 documents back to Pages '09 format and keep using that until Apple gets its act together (which it does not look like it is going to bother).
