    Go ahead an post you question/concern to this post. Hopefully, someone will be able to assist.

    If the question needs to be in a different area of the forum, one of us moderators will move it. So, have no fear about where to ask. Ask away and we'll try to help.

    Hello! Welcome to iPF! There were updates for PAGES, Numbers, and Keynote yesterday, if you did that update, your software is up to date.

    What you can try is force closing Pages and opening it again.

    FORCE CLOSING APPS

    1. Perform a four-finger upward swipe to bring up the multitasking window.
    2. Perform an upward swipe on the app window (not icon) for Pages.
    3. Re launch pages normally.

    Please tell us whether it works or not! Good luck!

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    Let us know if Abs good advice works for you here. Whenever the iPad receives an update, all apps need to be tweaked to run smoothly also, sometimes we have a teething period when this happens.

    Also a good idea to reset your iPad after an update, it just helps everything settle in nicely.....it won't change anything and is just like rebooting a PC.

    Reset - Hold the power off button and the home button simultaneously, keep holding them in and you may see the power off slide appear and disappear, wait until you see the Apple logo appear before releasing the buttons. It will take a little longer for your iPad to start.

    The IPad Forum is a community of members from all walks of life and from all over the world coming together to share our experiences and to help each other learn about this wonderful piece of technology the Ipad. There is a wealth of information already here in the many threads we have so doing some searches will answer most of the questions you have. If then you cannot find the answer you are seeking then by all means post your question. There are many friendly and informed members here only too willing to help you.

    We also have our own App - It is a very simple app to navigate.
