This was the message that popped up when I tried to send a Pages document via Yahoo Mail.  There was a "Learn more" option to click on.  So I did, & the below document came up: ... I'm confused.  What the heck? After reading other correspondence in this support community, I'm even more confused, LOL. And yes, I'm probably a dingleberry for not understanding, but why can't I attach a Pages file to my email as you would with a PC Word Document? Sheesh...

 

After July 31, 2012, you can no longer publish new documents to iWork.com from any iWork application on your Mac or iOS device. Documents already shared on iWork.com will not be available to you or to those you shared documents with.

Moving forward, you can use iCloud to share documents between your computer and your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. Learn more about or sign up for iCloud.

How to save your documents to a computer:

To save a copy of your documents shared on iWork.com, sign into www.iwork.com before July 31, 2012. Then, download all of your documents to your computer. You should do this as early as possible.

Here are steps to download your documents from iWork.com:

  1. Go to www.iwork.com from a web browser.
  2. Sign in with the Apple ID and password you previously used with your iWork.com account.
  3. In the Shared Documents page, you will see all of the documents you have shared using iWork.com. Click the download arrow associated with the documents you want to download and preserve.
  4. When the drop-down menu appears, select the format you want for your download by choosing from the available options: iWork ’09, Microsoft Office, or PDF.

If you have published any documents publicly, make sure you remove links to the documents and embedded Keynote presentations from your websites before July 31, 2012.

Thank you for being an iWork.com public beta user.

    You can.

     

    Mail Menu/File/Attach Files, select desired file. All done.

    If you're sending to a Mac user with the same Pages software, Pages format is fine.

     

    If not, in Pages, Export the document as PDF, Word, Rich Text or Plain text.

    Hi, I know it is 3 years on, but I've been using numbers for ages and never had this message until today, nor (to my knowledge) have I used iwork.com to store anything - it's all local. Apologies if this is not the right way to raise a question, I find the community very knowledgeable and the searching helpful, but don't  find asking questions intuitive. Thanks in advance.

    With the newer iWork tools, you're probably now using some combination of iCloud and/or iCloud Drive and/or local storage.   iWork.com is gone.

     

    As for whatever caused Numbers to pop up that message?  Donno.  It's probably not the most recent version of Numbers, and your OS X may also be getting older, as well.   There was an iWork.com file-sharing button in older versions of Numbers and other iWork apps, back around iWork '09.  Newer versions of Numbers don't have iWork.com integration — that's all either local or iCloud, now.

     

    But if you're on older software, then you're probably also on older hardware — now is a very good time check that your backups are running.   If Time Machine isn't configured and running on your system — or some other automatically-scheduled backup package you've added — then go get your backups working.    If Time Machine or some other tool is running, check and make sure it's still writing out backups and hasn't somehow gotten into trouble.

    Thanks for your comments. Time machine functional, but good to check. As I never used iworks.com anyway, it's sort of irrelevant, it just worried me that the comment would suddenly appear. Yes, older hardware and software - still on Snow Leopard as I've yet to find a replacement for Quicken 2005 as it was the last one that would run Rosetta. Some reasonable banking apps, but doing shares as well AND being able to transfer old data is beyond anything I've tried. Merry Christmas.

    If you go to Intuit's online chat function, they will sell you Quicken 2007 for Mac for $15.  Then update online to version 16.2.3 (the latest version as of this writing) and it will run on Snow Leopard through El Capitan and it will open your Quicken 2005 file directly.  No Rosetta needed.

    Thanks Michael - tried making an intuit account, once I got in and filled in the address details, the insisted I  could only be from the USA or Canada. Australia is out of bounds, sadly. Will try asking them how to get it/ or keep looking!

    Try using the chat feature and chat your request. They should take your information that way.
