Hi again: Apple's 'lost' iWork features find their way back

Although not all of the features that were spiked have returned, some of the biggies have, including the customized toolbar.

Apple's iWork is slowly but surely getting back to its old form.

The company on Thursday updated its iWork suite with several features it took out of the latest launch. The biggest update is the addition of customized toolbars -- a feature power users enjoyed in previous versions but were sad to see go in the latest option.

Apple was hit with user complaints recently after the company updated iWork without some of the features its long-time users had liked using. The company earlier this month posted a notice, saying that while some of the features in iWork '09 were taken out of its latest launch, it planned on bringing many of them back. Apple also suggested new features would be coming.

The latest updates are by no means breathtaking -- new Keynote transitions and Windows size and placement fixes can only go so far, after all -- but they're a step in the right direction for those who have been complaining of lost features.

Apple's updates are available now in the Mac App Store.
