The Option key is a fantastic part of Mac OS X, making many features accessible that would otherwise be hidden. We’ve spent a couple of days talking about how to maximize the Option key in your power-user Mac workflow, in the Finder and in the Menu Bar.
Today, we’re going to spend some time with Apple’s office productivity suite, iWork, and show you some cool tips on using the Option key in Pages, Keynote, and Numbers.
Apple has issued some small updates to its iWork suite in the Mac and iOS App Stores. Pages, Keynote and Numbers have been updated to version 9.3 on the Mac, and a 1.7 update is rolling out to the iOS versions.

Just a reminder, friends: if you’ve ever used Apple’s iWork.com beta to share and collaborate on documents in the cloud, you need to download them to your computer today… otherwise, at the end of the day, Apple will press a big red button and your precious Pages, Keynote and Numbers documents will be ripped apart into a trillion trillion atoms and slowly dispersed throughout the universe.
First launched in 2009 as a service to let iWork users collaborate, edit and download documents online, iWork.com is being killed off having never left beta in favor of Apple’s newer and more full-featured cloud initiative, iCloud.

Here’s something cool you may not have noticed yet. With its new Keynote update, released alongside Pages and Numbers yesterday, Apple replaced the unique icon that features the somewhat depressing lyrics to The Bitch of the Living by Spirit Awakening with a new 2012 icon that displays a famous quote from the company’s Think Different commercial.
