Viewing Document Information
You can store information such as author name and keywords and later display that
information, as well as statistics created automatically.
Here are ways to work with information about a document:
To add or change descriptive information about a document (author, title, comments,
and keywords), click Inspector in the toolbar, click the Document button, and then
click Info. Enter or change information in the fields in the pane.
This information is searchable using Spotlight on computers with Mac OS X version
10.4 and later.
To display document statistics, such as number of words, pages, lines, paragraphs,
sections, graphics, and characters in the document, click Inspector in the toolbar, click
the Document button, and then click Info.
A document’s word and page count are always visible at the bottom left of the
window. To hide your document’s word count, choose Pages > Preferences, and then
deselect “Show word count at window bottom.”
If a range of text is selected, you can specify the extent of the displayed statistics
by choosing Selection or Document from the Range pop-up menu in the Document
To display a saved document’s file information, including its size, its location, and
the dates it was created and last modified, click Inspector in the toolbar, click the
Document button, click Info, and then click the Show File Info button.
Set up overall document characteristics, including margins,
facing pages, text columns, and sections. Learn how to create
a table of contents, footnotes, and endnotes.
Before adding content to your document, it’s a good idea to specify document
settings, such as page orientation, page size, and page margins. Some documents
also require changing settings for master objects (background graphics, such as
watermarks) and facing-page attributes. You change most of these settings in the
Document inspector and the Layout inspector.
