I have read similar threads, but they all are different to what is happening to me. If I export a file from Pages 4.2 to be saved as a Word file (.doc) the resulting file when opend has text missing as well as repeated lines. Sometime the same line is repeated 17 times. The only way I seem to be able to convert a file is to copy from the pages file and pasted it into a new document in word. What is strange is no matter how many times I try exporting the file, the resulting word file is always exactly the same as the other corrupted files. I went into the library and deleted the iwork plist file and that did not help. Any suggestions?
