Pages '09 allows you to view the documents you're working on in a number of different ways; different scenarios call for different view options. For example, to work on the content of this Collin Family newsletter, we may want to adjust the zoom level up to better view the text we're editing. One option is to use the View menu. Click View. Move down to Zoom where you'll see a number of zoom options appear on the right side. Click Zoom In to bump up to the next zoom level. The zoom level currently being used appears on the Status bar on the Zoom button.
Let's make a small change to our text in the first paragraph. Click once to select the text box, click again to get inside. We'll capitalize the letter w in the word "we". Now we can also make changes from the Zoom button itself. For example, to get a better feel for the layout of our document zooming out can help. Click the Zoom button, where you'll find a number of zoom levels as well as options at the bottom which will automatically adjust your page size to fit the width of your screen or if you rather fit the entire page on your screen, click Fit Page.
To get a better feel for the flow of our document, which will likely be printed with pages facing one another choosing Two Up is even better. Click the Zoom button again, this time select Two Up. A great new option that's ideal for distraction-free reading of a document is Full Screen View. We can change to this view from the View menu or click the Full Screen button on your toolbar. Once you're in Full Screen View, the position of your mouse pointer is very important. For example, if you want to scroll down through the document, move your mouse pointer to the very far right side of your screen where the Vertical Scroll bar will appear. Now you can scroll up and down through your document.
To jump to a specific page, move your mouse pointer to the very far left of your screen and the page thumbnails will appear. Click the thumbnail to take you to that page. You can also continue to work on your document from this view as well. Let's make a change to the name on the top of page 2. Click once to select the text box, click again to get inside. We'll change the name from DAVE to DAVID. You even have access to the Pages '09 menus and Format bar. Move your mouse pointer to the very top of your screen to reveal the menus and the Format bar.
To exit Full Screen View, you can use the View menu from here or click the Exit button on the Format bar, or if you prefer, while reading the document press the Escape key on your keyboard. Now this is going to return you back to the previous view you were using before entering Full Screen View. Using the right View option for the right scenario can improve your work experience in Pages '09.
