I don't really mind the change, as long as it's for the better I think that I started with Lotus 1-2-3, and later used Excel and Quattro Pro. Through the years I ended up going back to Excel more and more. Recently I tried Numbers and Tables, and I don't recall the specifics of each program but I went back to Excel. Right now I'm interested in learning more about Quantrix. I'm open to alternatives as well as products that I can use alongside Excel.
I still cannot figure out how to open more than one Inspector but I haven't asked my wife yet.
Easy ! Go to the VIEW Menu scroll down to "New Inspector". Rocket Science, Poly !
I also had trouble in the beginning and stumbled on it by accident... had one open and didn't see it on my 2nd monitor, so I opened an Inspector only to realize I now had 2 open ! Whoa! neat !! I usually run KeyNote with 3 open, saves time flipping back and forth.
so i fiddled with the 30 day download and then bought the DVD. the 30-day trial can be activated by entering a serial number. i figured i'd just enter the one that came with my DVD. well, there wasn't a serial number. i was on the phone for 15 minutes with Apple to learn that the DVD version doesn't need a serial; only the web download does. hmmmm. so i had to delete the downloaded version and reinstall to get it going.
so, if you downloaded first, now you know.
also, it's on MacNN now, which i found after i went through the call to Apple:
Apple has removed a common security measure from its iWork '09 office suite, according to an official support document. Mirroring a decision taken with iLife, which is bundled with new Macs as well as sold separately, Apple has eliminated the need to enter a serial number when installing a retail copy of iWork '09. A number is still needed to unlock trial versions of iWork, unless users install a retail copy over top.
It is uncertain why Apple would remove anti-piracy measures from iWork, as the suite is entirely optional and likely to be pirated. The combined iLife and iWork decisions may indicate that Apple feels serial numbers are no longer effective, however, or that they are simply an unnecessary hassle when copies of both suites may often be pre-installed on Macs.
