[MUSIC] >> Hi, and welcome to Pages Essential Training. I'm David Rivers. Pages is a powerful word processing application that gives you all the tools you need to create stunning documents. In this course I'll take you through the creation process, beginning with a quick tour of the enhanced template chooser, and the user interface. Then it's on to some document basics before we really start working with different kinds of document text and tools to ensure your document displays the right content.

Now making your documents look good is also an important part of creating professional quality documents, so we'll work with styles and other layout essentials such as headers and footers, columns, tables of contents, and much, much more. Then we move on to working with objects like images and shapes. Even audio and video. >> All over the world. >> After spending some time with tables and charts, we explore the various ways to share your documents with the world, including exporting to PDF and Word formats.

And, of course, working in the Cloud. With all of this and more to cover, let's get started with Pages Essential Training. [BLANK_AUDIO]
