Select a Blank Template

Click on the ‘Pages’ icon in your MAC systems, and give it time to load. Select an ‘A4 Blank Page’ from the page that comes up. Since the subject you are dealing with is legal and formal, A4 would be a more convenient and standard option to represent your construction project details.

Start Composing and Formatting the Text

Once the template has been selected start adding the content like the preamble, required work description, construction schedule, financial terms, dispute and claim resolution, etc. Use the shortcut, press ‘Command+A’, to set the format of the content, like line spacing should be ‘1.5’, typography should be ‘Times New Roman’, ‘Arial’, or other standard styles. The best font size for the text is ‘12’ in Pages.
Also highlighting vital information, header, and specific details are crucial in writing legal documents. Every header must be in a bigger font than its subheading. ‘Double click’ if it is a single word, or use the cursor and drag it to the end of the sentence if there are multiple words. This will help you to select the word/s and then choose any required font size to set the format. This selection process also helps in highlighting details in between continuous lines with Bold, Italic, Underlined, or Colored word/s and sentence/s.

Insert a Table and Edit

Apple Pages, already, contains various types of table templates from which you can choose the perfect fit for defining construction cost estimates, work order, timeline, etc. Go to the top of the page, click on the ‘Table’ icon, and select the preferred types of table and ‘Drag’ or ‘Insert’ into the document. Check table placement in the document and start editing its ‘rows’ and ‘columns’ with your construction agreement details.

Leave Space for Signature and Save It

Signify the signature space by adding the name of the parties involved. Once, all checked, go to ‘File’ at the top of the page and click on ‘Save’ or press ‘? and S’.
