Pages app starts then immediately stops — confused

Hi guys,

On a MBP with 10.12.6 and Pages 7.1 — has been rock solid until tonight.

I click on the icon and the little dot starts under it, the app title flashes on the menu bar, and then it just stops.

Went searching for answers but can't pull up much on this.

• I used Disk Warrior to rebuild the volume, doesn't help.
• Went looking for the plist file to delete and can't find one
• Then found "com.apple.iWork.Pages.plist", saved a copy and deleted it.
Had no effect. Pages still won't load.

I can't upgrade the app without upgrading the OS, and everything works so well right now (other than Pages), I'd prefer not to do that.

Any ideas on how to fix this? Thanks for any assistance. Stay safe.

create a new user account, login to it, see if it launches. If it does, that would point to some sort of prefs/software issue on your main user account.
