@optshiftk Missing endnotes and no longer allowing images in Pages headers/footers seems like a big deal, too.

@ObjColumnist @drewmccormack Right. And you may have iWork ’09 today, but can you keep using the MAS version if you get a new Mac?

@ObjColumnist @drewmccormack iMovie loses the ability to (reliably) read old projects every couple releases.

@ObjColumnist @drewmccormack iWork ’09 is no longer for sale, and the new version can’t read all the features of the old file formats.

@ObjColumnist @drewmccormack Probably not. I more see the XML as a safety net in case the format is abandoned. I used the PDFs every day.

@drewmccormack The iWork team apparently has so little confidence in Core Data that they reinvented this rather than wait for it to be fixed

@drewmccormack Exactly. Partial loading and efficient syncing of changes are supposed to be exactly the problems that Core Data solves.

@cjwl @drewmccormack No, this doesn’t improve compatibility with MS Office. iWork ’09 also used a ZIP container.

@drewmccormack So why invent a new partial loading document format when iCloud already has built-in support for one?
