is the new version of pages missing features?

Just opened a previous document in the new pages and noticed my ruler guides were gone and I don't see where to get them back. Thats a feature I would miss if it was gone. Did they take functionality away in the new iWork apps?

Went on the apple discussion board and it looks like a lot of functionality is missing. I know sometimes people jump the gun and complain just because things have changed.. but I get the feeling that maybe I should have waited before "upgrading" to the new iWork apps? Haven't tried the new pages or keynote yet. Anyone else try them yet? what do you think?

If you look in the Applications folder, your older version of Pages should still be in the iWork 09 folder.

If you open an iWork '09 document with the new version, it is modified and can't be opened by the '09 application.
There is a workaround. With said file opened in the "new, improved" iWork, go to File>Revert To... The Time-Machine-like display will allow you to pick from earlier versions. Select the last version saved in old iWork, click "Restore," and the old version is back in the folder where it lives. You should be able to double-click the file and have it open in iWorks '09. To be safe, I've opened these files from File>Open in the old iWorks, or from the file's Get Info> "Open With".

The iOS-ification of Pages, etc. is a hot topic on many forums. Overwhelmingly negative reaction. Fortunately, Apple spared the old versions, as Phyllis mentioned, so they're still in your Applications folder.

Thanks.. I was going to ask how to go back to old now that I opened the file in the new one. I hope these new "improved" iWork apps get updated to functionality of the old ones, (kind of like what happened with final cut pro x) or do you think the "dumber" (for lack of a better word) new apps were designed that way intentionally?

Apple has already said that features will be added back in. They wanted to get feature parity between all versions (desktop, iOS, web) first.

I recently upgraded to Mavericks and am having a problems w/Pages. I tried Chuck's workaround only to discover that I have been using iWork '08 so when I try his workaround, going to file, the "Revert to Saved" is grayed out. My computer is "hung up" & I can't force quit pages--or even do a shut down! Any suggestions?

My situation is explained at "Genius Bar-Trouble Shooting Software"
