Anyone know how to save a file created in Pages as a Word Document?
If you open a Word file (doc and Docx) in pages for Mac, if you want to do some work on the file, do you have to save it in the .Pages format, and after you are finished, export it again as a Word document?
Yes, that is correct as it is not possible to save it as a word document. My recommendation for working with word documents on the mac is simply opening and editing them in text edit.
While a document is open in pages go to File, Export to, Word. At the dialog box choose Word then click next. As usual enter file name, select location then press the Export button.
So far I'm quite satisfy with it. It also works very well even with tables.
Hope it helps.
I was told that when exporting to word, much of the formatting is compromised. If you are working with sighted peers who rely on the formatting to be just so, I would not export.
Text Edit does not handle tables.
I should have made the question more clear.
If I want to do some work on a Word document of this type, do I first have to save it to the Pages format, and once I am finished working on it, I can export the document to Word again?
This is correct as there is no way to actually save the document as a word doc.
