Macworld - - How - To -

1. Launch Pages (it’s in the Ap­pli­ca­tions folder of your Mac).

2. In the win­dow that au­to­mat­i­cally opens when you launch the app, nav­i­gate to the lo­ca­tion of your Word file. For ex­am­ple, if it’s in Doc­u­ments, click on the Doc­u­ments folder in the left side­bar. (You can also click on the File menu and se­lect Open, then nav­i­gate to your doc­u­ment.)

3. Once you’ve lo­cated your file, se­lect it and click Open.

4. A win­dow may ap­pear, ex­plain­ing any changes that were made dur­ing the im­port process. The more com­pli­cate your Word doc­u­ment (for­mat­ting, ta­bles, im­age place­ment, and so on), the higher the pos­si­bil­ity that a change had to be made. The sim­pler the doc­u­ment, the more your file will re­sem­ble what you cre­ated in Word.

5. That’s it. The Word file should open in Pages.

Be­fore you start work­ing on your doc­u­ment, look it over care­fully. For­mat­ting may have changed and you may have to fix it. There’s al­ways a chance that so much hap­pened dur­ing the im­port that you can’t use your doc­u­ment.
