Hello:

 

Is iWorks 9 (Old Version) compatable with both Snow Leopard (10.6.8) and Lion and M. Lion?

 

I transfer/change my Appleworks 6 files to Pages for use in either L or ML.

 

Thank you.

    iWork '09 works on Mac OS all the way from 10.4.11 to the current version.

    Wow! OK thanks so much for your quick reply.

     

    So, once I get iWorks 9 (Old Version) installed on my current Snow Leopard - I can change all my

    AW files over to Pages files and have everything ready for a switch to either M or ML?

    I have no experience with AppleWorks but found this discussion: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/4288485?start=0&tstart=0

    Yes, provided all of your AW files AW 6 files and are word processing files. AW 6 spreadsheet files can be opened by Numbers '09; AW 6 presentation files can be opened with Keynote '09. Other types of AW 6 files cannot be opened by any of the iWork (no s) applications.

     

    Regards,

    Yep, all our AW files our AW 6.

     

    Is there anyplace I could download iWorks 9 (Old Version) from?

  • Barry Level 7 (29,919 points)

    If there is, it won't be a legal download.

     

    Apple did have a trial version on its website at one time, but it's long gone. That was the only legal download available. The application continued to work, but would not Save or Print after the trial period ended unless it was activated with a purchased key.

     

    You might be able to find the boxed version on eBay, Craig's List, or similar sites.

     

    BTW: Mine was one of the early boxes, purchased with a Family Licence shortly after Pages '09 was released for CDN$99. It's now installed (and updated as necessary) on three Macs running three versions of OS X (Tiger, Leopard and Mountain Lion). Works fine on all three.

     

    Regards,

    Barry

    As Barry said, no legitimate downloads. On disk only.

    OK - I have now got iWorks 9 (Old Version) installed.

     

    The Appleworks files have been changed from version 5 to 6.

     

    However, when I right click on an Appleworks file and go to Info and choose Pages, The file still opens as

    an Appleworks file.   Is there something I'm leaving out?

  • fruhulda Level 6 (15,120 points)

    Steve, remeber to do the Pages updates too.

     

    To open the AW files drag the document icons to the Pages icon in the Dock

  • SteveH Level 1 (115 points)

    I thought there was a way to convert all the Appleworks files to Pages at the same time.

     

    In the info window, the botton that says change all - but, it does'nt!

  • fruhulda Level 6 (15,120 points)

    That doesn't convert the AW documents. It change which application to open the files with. To convert them you need to open them in Pages. Only AW 6 word processings files can be opened by Pages

  • SteveH Level 1 (115 points)

    How do I update Pages - I cant find any Update Button?

     

    Is there a way to convert all our Appleworks files over/into Pages at the same time or do they each have to be done individually?

  • SteveH Level 1 (115 points)

    I just tried draging one of our Appleworks files onto the Pages icon, but when it opens it's still an

    Appleworks document!
