  1. The updates didn’t show up in the App Store. When I click on the links for the App names in this article it took me to the app in the App Store and a button for the update appeared and let me update. After updating all 3 apps none of them showed up as being recently updated in the app store. Maybe a bug in the latest Catalina update?

    1. iOS and macOS versions are now the same. I’m thinking this is the Catalystic version where now, they can primarily update the iOS version and port it to the Mac.

  2. Warning do not update.
    Terrible update
    The keyboard highlights are Unnecessary.
    The menus have less contrast and harder to read.
    You cannot open older files unless they have been converted to this new update.
    I have been adding background colors and pages and numbers for years

    Been with Apple since 1984 and I’ve never seen an update so clumsy.

  3. Still no support for the OpenDocument Formats… Come on Apple, loads of other companies are already offering this – when are you going to get with the times?

  4. Updates for Numbers, Pages and Keynote of 31 March 2020 do not succeed, showing continuously that they are processing… I have automatic updates activated but it does not work automatically nor manually… Help, please!

  5. A very specific warning: “keyboard” replaces “typewriter”, so this is not just an additional new animation, it comes with a loss. And with it is lost the ability to animate by letter to have letters appearing in random order.
