I am a novice when it comes to IWork since I just transitioned over from Microsoft office Stdent 2007 to a Mac!
My last laptop died and I transferred all my word docs and pics over to a flash drive. What's the easiest way to import them into Pages and then be able to export them back to my flash drive so I can also use them as word documents on my desktop?? Also how would I export a pages doc in word format so that an office user can read it?

Thanks!

    Just open them from inside Pages

    +Menu > File > Open > browse to your thumbdrive and select the file+

    or double click on the file in the thumbdrive, normally it will open in Pages, if not:

    +right click on file in Finder > Open with… > browse to Applications/iWork/Pages > OK+

    You either +Menu > File > Save as… > down bottom > check Save Copy as: > Word document+

    or +Menu > File > Export… > Word+
