Need To Restore Deleted iWork Apps

I noticed I had two copies of Pages on my OS X 10.9 Mavericks System.  So I used App Delete to remove the iWork 09 apps and leave the latest copies.  Unfortunately, it took the old and the new copies.

I have not emptied the trash and I have a time machine backup.

I have several documents I use on Pages so I need to know the best way to restore the newest Pages and the other iWork apps.

Thanks,

Randal

You can open the Trash folder .. right click on each of the apps and select the "Put Back" option and it will restore the application to its previous location ... if you see any plist or settings files .. 'Put Back' these too

I am doing the control click since I don't have a right click and there is no option for "put back."

It would appear that AppDelete tracks the folder names that it deleted the application from as I note that Pages is in the Trash inside a folder called Applications which would be the folder it was in before it was deleted.

You can drag and drop the Pages app back to the Applications folder

Repeat with Numbers and Keynote apps

Also look in the trash for trashed files which were in the following folders and restore them to their original folders BEFORE you open any of these apps
/Users/rjw/Library/Application Support/
/Users/rjw/Library/Preferences


You might also want to check with the software provider for their advice

Else, log on to the app store and redownload them. If you bought them or claimed them you can redownload the apps.

Worked great.  I especially appreciate you suggesting what folders to repopulate.  While doing that I found content that would have been erased permanently.
