One of my colleagues is working on a project using Apple’s Pages program, part of the iWork Suite. Oddly, when she is connected to the internet (anywhere) the program runs more slowly than if it is not and she has had several situations where she creates a file in Pages and after closing it, the file will no longer open. At first, we both thought that the problem was the same as what is described in several discussion forums (like this one), but after further investigation, she believes the “corruption” of the file only seems to happen when a computer is connected to the internet or our school’s network.
We both are coming to love the Pages program, but this glitch can be a problem. After discussing it with my colleague, we thought I should share it here and see if there are any others with similar observations as she did not see any discussions online about this aspect of the problem.
