Anyone have any idea why the new iWork (2013) will not save files to my Windows server? Not only does it not save files there, but it opens them, deletes the old file, and then won't save! I have had to revert to '09 for all my office stuff... .

    A Microsoft conspiracy maybe?

    If your Windows server is formatted NTFS, that may be the problem. iWork 2013 seems to have a bug with SMB shares, even if you enable NTFS write permissions in terminal or use a third party driver.

    Same problem here with a linux samba server (ext4).

     

    If I make a copy of the file (don't rename it after copying), open with Numbers 13 (Pages and Keynotes too) then I can save it but if rename the copy then a i get the same error I got with the original file.

    You might post this a bug. I already did, but more notices may get more attention.

    I've filed a bug report with Apple (bugreport.apple.com) and it's been updated to say it's a duplicate bug, so I guess they know about it...  Annoying in the meantime though!

    I have the exact same problem.  I had to copy the file to local drive, edit it and copy it back.  Using the '09 version was faster.

    Just a "me too" although I'm seeing this with file-store exported from a Solaris machine running Samba. The original file is deleted to be replaced by a folder based on the file name plus a bunch of hex numbers. "Save as" to local file-store then fails as well(!), but a "Duplicate" to create a document called "<original name> copy" can then be saved to local file-store. Then I can rename the file to get rid of " copy" from its name and move it back into the Samba file-store.

     

    Lovely :-(

    To all...

     

    From reading the thread, I get the impression that this did work using Numbers '09. If that's the case, my recommendation would be to consider going back to using Numbers '09 for this (and possibly other tasks) whle waiting for improvements to numbers 3.

     

    Unless you have removed it, you should find Numbers '09 in the iWork '09 folder in your Applications folder.

     

    Documents that have been opened and saved using Numbers 3 will require oepning in that version and exporting from there in Numbers '09 file format before opening in Numbers '09.

     

    Regards,

    Barry
