Hi there. I am mainly using Pages to edit documents that have been generated in Word by other computers. I have no problem opening and editing these files but when I am finished, is there a way of saving them so that I can email them back to the other computers (work colleagues using Word on PCs) so they can open them? The one document I have tried this with won't open on their computer.

    Pages saves in its own format and you cannot change that. However, you can export as a .doc file so Word can read it. Note: depending on how/what formatting has been done the document you export into .doc may or may not look the same in Word as it did in Pages.

    In addition to dwb says get the Pages User Guide by clicking on the name in the Pages Help menu. It does tell you a lot about what you can do.
