Pages 09 :: How To Make Pages The Default Application To Open Word Documents?


can anyone tell me how to make Pages the default application that opens up all my word documents? Currently when I go to open a document that gets e-mailed it automatically opens in Word. Is there a way to change this so that it opens in Pages?

Pages 09 :: How To Make Pages Open All Downloaded Word Documents
I frequently have to download attachments that are in .doc format for school, and whenever I do this, it will only open within Text Edit. How do I make it so that these open with Pages instead? I know its possible because I have seen the exact same attachments open with Pages on a different Macbook Pro.

I just got my first mac in the mail yesterday. I had it shipped with iwork already installed. Once i started having problems I uninstalled it and reinstalled it. It's iwork 09 by the way. Anyways I cant open any word documents. Even if I make the document in iwork and save it as .doc it wont open. I get an error that says something like the document "....." coundnt be opened. I can open anything saved as a pages document. i prefer to no use the default program thats already installed on the mac.

Pages 09 :: Pages Set As Default To Open But They Open With Word Anyways?
I have Pages set as the default to open all pages files. However, files created in Pages '09 still open with Word even though the 'Open With' has (default) next to pages.

Files created in Pages '08 or saved from Pages '09 to an older version respect Pages as the default app.

What's up with my Pages '09 files that they refuse to open with their default ap?

Pages 09 :: Cannot Open Word Documents (Doc)
I have unloaded the version 09 (demo) of iWork, but I cannot open documents '.doc' They start the loading and then the opening is interrupted with the following message: The document 'Fivelab.doc' could not been have opened. If I keep a new Pages document as 'doc', the same happens to me to open it again in pages.

Pages 09 :: Cannot Open Documents Originally In Word 2008 For Mac?
I have both Word 2008 for Mac and IWork 09. Working on long and complicated documents in Word, I had a number of problems with Word so that I decided to switch to Pages. I copied my documents into Pages, and saved them in Pages. Now, when I want to open them in Pages, I get a message that Pages cannot open those documents.The message says: the "file" couldn't be opened. The required index.xml file is missing.Again: original Word document, properly saved into Pages. the saved Pages file cannot be opened in Pages.

Pages 09 :: Batch Convert Word Docs To Pages Documents?
I've just bought this iMac and have switched all of my files over from my PowerBook. I used MS Word on my PowerBook, but now want to use Pages on my iMac. I opened one of my Word Docs in Pages and when I went to save it, it saved as a Pages document. But this means I now have 2 copies of it -- one in Word and one in Pages. Is there any way to convert all of my Word Docs into Pages documents at one go? Otherwise I'm going to have to keep track somehow and delete the Word Docs one by one as I save them in Pages!

Pages 09 :: Won't Open Any Pages Documents
I have been using Pages (1.0.2) on my G4 12" Powerbook.

Recently I upgraded the system software to Mac Os 10.5.8 to be ready to buy a iPad.
At the same time I ordered iWork 09.

Both has been installed and used for a couple of months.

But suddenly today Pages (4.0.3) will not open ANY documents. It will not even let me make a new document from the blank template.

I have tried re-installing but it didn't change anything. (Pages 1.0.2 still works)

Pages 09 :: How Do I Set Pages As The Default To Open Docs
I am just starting out with a brand new MacBook and Pages and have thousands of documents in Word that I will be working with (eventually). When I open them (with double click) they open with the default program "TextEdit." The only way I can figure out how to open them is by right-clicking and selecting "Open with Pages." This is cumbersome. I know there must be a simple way to set the Pages as the default instead of TextEdit. Also, when I have saved a document (with a copy saved into Word), when I open the Pages document it, of course, opens in Pages. But if I open the word document that I just saved out of Pages, it opens in TextEdit.

Can someone share the secret with me for setting Pages as my default word processor?

Also, is there any advantage to opening in TextEdit? Why is this the default setting? These are less important questions, but I'm still interested.

Pages 09 :: Importing Word Documents & Exporting Them As Word?
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?

Pages 09 :: Is There A Word Converter To Read Documents In Word
I realize I can save a Pages document as a Word document. My question is if I do save it as pages, and then don't have access to Pages to read it, is there an add-on for Word that will allow it to read a Pages formatted document?

If there is, where can I find it?

Pages 09 :: Finding Apple Script To Make Pages Open In A User-selected Screen Position?
This is a follow-up to a response/script made previously by Yvan KOENIG that enables Pages to open a Pages template in a user-selected "left" position.[URL]

This works great for me, but I'd like to take this one step further, if possible. I'm naïve when it comes to Apple Scripts

Currently, if I use the script, it opens up in 100% 'fit-width' view as follows:
[URL]

What I'd like it to do is to open up in 125% 'fit-width' view as follows:
[URL]

I'd like to therefore ask if it's possible to somehow enable this in the script above.

Pages 09 :: Does Not Open .Pages Documents
When I attempt to open any of my .pages documents, Text Edit opens instead. I have attempted to correct this by right clicking on the document and changing 'Open With' from 'Text Edit' to 'Pages (default)' and then choosing the 'Change All' option, but it flickers and 'Text Edit' returns to the list.

Pages 09 :: Importing Tables From Word Documents
I have a new job where the majority of my colleagues are PC users and we must work on common documents. I have no problem saving documents as a word file and opening word documents. But I have had some issues with Tables coming from a word document. I looked on the forum and learned about inline tables but I have been unable to take a table from a .doc file and change it to an inline table. Basically when the page ends, the table stops, even when there is more text. It is making it really frustrating for work as I have been copying and pasting the text from the table into a new document to edit it and then replacing the new text with the old. How to see the text in tables from word documents?

Pages 09 :: Any Way To Resave As Microsoft Word By Default?
I only know of one person in my life who has a Mac (not even running iWork). All other computers are PC (all other computers in house, school, etc.) and of course they all run Microsoft word. I happen to have word 04' installed on my machine, but runs slow and I much prefer pages better. So my question is I transfer file (.doc) on my flash drive, but when I open, edit, then save them I have to resave it at Microsoft word back to my flash drive every time. Isn't there a way to resave a Microsoft word as a Microsoft word back on the flash drive by default when editing a word document?

I know I can do it by double-clicking the Office document and dragging it to the appropriate iWork app in the dock, but it would be nice to have it happen by default. That way I can put Office in my rearview mirror!
