If you had purchased and downloaded it from the App Store, then you should be able to find it on the Purchases page in App Store. Otherwise, you had a version distributed by DVD. You need to find that installer disc or look for one your can purchase on eBay or Amazon. Also, check that your time and date are properly set. You will have to download it on the computer where it will be used. If there is another version of Pages already installed on that computer, then put it in the Trash before trying to download or re-download.
Thanks for the reply. I did buy it from the App store a long time ago and I do have it in the Purchases page, but when I go to install it, it gives me that error. It does not give me the option to download an earlier version.
That must be because you are trying to install a much later version of Pages. The version you may have previously downloaded might not be the one you used to have but a later version. It may well be you were using an older Pages installed from a DVD. You might check the DVDs that came with the computer when it was new. There is a Software Restore program that can be used to install any selected software that came with the computer, but if memory serves Pages, et.al. was a separately purchased product. Only the iLife apps were pre-installed. Back then Pages was part of iWork '09 purchased separately. You may still find old iWork on eBay or Amazon.
You get it in the Mac App Store. The current version, 11.2, requires something newer than Catalina. But you can download an older version there too since you had previously had Pages from the App Store (I assume).
Although the application "Pages"Was first downloaded in December 2013, on macOS will install the latest version compatible with macOS Catalina. So you will not receive an old version of the application.
This post will aggregate a collection of links and resources for finding and downloading old Mac software, including old Mac system software, old Macintosh applications, and more, for everything from older Intel Macs, to PowerPC Macs, to 68040 and 030 Macs.
And Classilla, for Mac OS 9, is another web browser option. Classilla is based on Mozilla browser but tries to use the mobile versions of websites to keep things slim and faster on older Macs, it actually works pretty well too!
I love Snow Leopard and only upgraded to OS X 10.9.5 for upgraded browser support by Firefox. I wish Firefox still supported Snow Leopard but what can you do. I may go back to Snow Leopard one day as it is so much faster and stable compared to any other version of OS X. In reality, what do operating systems really offer that can not already be done? Just wish developers would keep supporting older operating systems, such as Snow Leopard and XP.
This is an article about where to find and download old Mac software, not an article about which computer processor architectures can run which versions of system software. Please correct your comment.
Peggy, if it works for you then I would stay put on 10.6.8 as that is a famously stable release of Mac OS system software that runs great. Just for some reference I have several Macs running older versions like you and they still work great. AppleWorks was transformed into Pages, for better or worse. With your Mac the main thing I would probably do is get more RAM as more memory always improves performance, as does an SSD hard disk, if you want performance boost, but why mess with software when what you have works?
This tip doesn't cover shopping for the old apps if you don't already own them, because there is no good way to tell if that app that now requires iOS 11 even had an iOS 9 version for the original iPad mini, or an iOS 5 one for the original iPad. But, if you bought the app, here's how to download it.
The App Store will consider your request for a moment, and then pop up a dialog box, asking you if you want to install the old app. Click Download to get the older version, and the app store will chew on your request for a minute, and start installing.
Come on... a lot of "interesting" apps are out of support on older versions of IOS, especially those with API calls... First message you get is "upgrade". Would it be to apple unfriendly for appleinsider to have that check done ? My wife has an iphone 4 stuck to IOS9, and she can enjoy very little of the most common apps.

We say in the end of the procedure that it isn't the be-all end-all of solutions, as developers have often changed things on the back-end.
All of us might have wondered what would happen if we were to download older versions of apps instead of just getting it from the App Store. Would it bring us benefits by providing access to features that were removed, or will we be inconvenienced with the number of bugs still existent on the app before updates?
This should allow you to download older versions of apps as you please without worrying about the apps automatically updating themselves. However, you will still get notifications on whether the updates for such apps is available, though you can simply decline them.
The last thing you have to do before you download older versions of apps is to actually uninstall the app in question. This is obviously so that you can install the older version properly without any conflict. Unfortunately, you will lose the app data upon doing so. On the other hand, you have the option to keep that data by following a certain procedure.
Now that you know the three pre-requisites to download older versions of apps, all you have to learn is how to actually do it. Our method involves using a website to download the app.
Not only that, you can also download the APK files without much hassle. Also, you have the option to choose from different versions, and that would be why we chose this website to download older versions of apps.
Compared to the other two options, this one would be a bit easier since the interface is clean and intuitive. With that, we have our three choices to download older versions of apps using a third-party source or a website.
In the event that this happens to you, you might want to download older versions of apps. It might not be common, but it is still possible. And that is especially true for you now that you know the different websites to download APK files from.
Thanks to the Revert feature of iWork Pages, we can even recover a replaced pages document, or put it simply, recover an earlier document version in Pages, as long as that you did the Pages document editing on your mac, instead of receiving the Pages document from other.
These downloads are intended for established users, and contain the latest IBM fixes and Oracle updates to the Java SE application programming interfaces (APIs). To take advantage of new capabilities in the SDK, users are encouraged to move to the latest version.
This is where you download LightBurn. If you're already a customer, and your license update period has not expired, click the link below to get the latest version - your existing license will unlock it.
Tip: You may not always want to replace the current version with the older one. Instead, you can restore the older version as a copy, essentially mimicking the Duplicate function. To create a copy, hold down the Option key; the Restore button will change to Restore a Copy.
After downloading the installer for your old version of macOS, you need to get it into a format your Mac can boot from. The best and easiest option is to create a bootable USB drive. This could be an external hard drive or a thumb drive.
MathType will check periodically for releases that are more recent than the version you have installed. It will let you choose to download and install now, to get more information about the update, or to cancel and upgrade at a later time. You can visit this section for more detailed information.
Pages used to feature several other advanced writing tools. Many of these have been stripped out of the current version. The "Full Screen" mode (introduced in Mac OS X Lion) and supported in Pages 4.1 hid the menubar and toolbars, allowing users to focus on a single document without being distracted by other windows on the screen; however, after Pages 5, full-screen mode requires the user to manually hide various panes for focused writing and the page thumbnails pane does not automatically open when the cursor is moved to the left screen edge. Earlier versions featured mail merge, which automatically populated custom fields with contact data from the Address Book or Numbers apps to create personalized documents. For example, if a user wanted to send one letter to three people, mail merge allowed the user to create a single document with placeholder fields that were populated when printing. The mail merge feature was completely removed in version 5 and it did not return until version 12.1. Tables and charts pasted from Numbers are automatically updated if the original spreadsheet is changed. 2b1af7f3a8
