Finally! I can finally throw away Appleworks! I have had a custom solution for report generation in my office, using OmniOutliner and AppleScript to produce printed documents using Appleworks. Since it has not been upgraded since 6.2.9, I've been remarkably frustrated at not being able to script Pages.

I was afraid that when Apple finally did AppleScript support to Pages, it would be clunky, but not at all. There is an incredibly rich scripting API. I haven't had the time to explore all of the scriptability issues yet. However, with only a half-hour's work, I was able to switch my scripts over to Pages.
