I kind of think you are lost. But send johnpowell a pm and ask him, he knows about this sort of stuff.

This has traditionally been one of the flaws of Pages; it does not have document recovery. Office for Mac does, however.

No it can’t be retrieved. Pages, and like you, I found this out the hard way, does not have document recovery like the Office For Mac Suite.

This is why I have both iWork and Office For Mac on my computer. People just look at me like I’m nuts when I say this, but then I just say that “Wait until it happens to you and then you’ll see”.
