In pages when I try to open some documents I receive this message...

  index.xml file is missing

 

It's very frustrating to not be able  to open documents.

Help!

    You have 2 versions of Pages on your Mac.

     

    Pages 5.2 is in your Applications folder.

     

    Pages '09/'08 is in your Applications/iWork folder.

     

    You are alternately opening the wrong versions.

     

    Pages '09/'08 can not open Pages 5 files and you will get the warning that you need a newer version.

     

    Pages 5.2 can open Pages '09 files but may damage/alter them. It can not open Pages '08 files at all.

     

    Older versions of Pages 5 can not open files from later versions of Pages 5.

     

    Once opened and saved in Pages 5 the Pages '09 files can not be opened in Pages '09.

     

    Anything that is saved to iCloud and opened in a newer version of Pages is also converted to Pages 5 files.

     

    All Pages files no matter what version and incompatibility have the same extension .pages.

     

    Pages 5 files are now only compatible with themselves on a very restricted set of hardware, software and Operating Systems and will not transfer correctly on any other server software than iCloud.

     

    Apple has removed over 110 features from Pages 5 and added many bugs:
