We have now posted the second significant update to our “Take Control of Pages” pre-book at Leanpub. The update, available for free to purchasers of the pre-book, offers a new chapter on organizing your work by using sections, tables of contents, and list styles, including how to use list styles to create headings in structured documents. Subsequent free updates to the pre-book will include chapters on layout tools, file exporting, templates, and using objects in Pages documents. follow link
Copy Before Submitting Web Forms
Filling in Web forms (like the one used to submit this tip) can be a bit of a gamble - you put in your pearls of wisdom, perhaps only to lose them all if the Web page flakes out or the browser crashes. Instead of losing all your text, "save" it by pressing Command-A to select all and then Command-C to copy the selected text to the clipboard. Do this periodically as you type and before you click Submit, and you may "save" yourself from a lot of frustration. It takes just a second to do, and the first time you need to rely on it to paste back in lost text, you'll feel smart.

Nor would the book cost you $15: as a TidBITS member, you can purchase it at a 30% discount.
Furthermore, when you purchase a book through Leanpub you can get a complete refund for 45 days from the date of purchase, so there's pretty much no risk of getting burned.
Put simply, we wouldn't have done the book in this fashion if we weren't entirely comfortable that we'd be able to deliver.
