Mac Pages Viewer for Windows


I made a comment on a Blogger page in February 2010, that has garnered compliments from several folks, I thought it was minor at the time, but I’m glad it was of use to others. This was something I figured out while working as a Systems Administrator; one question that came to me at the Help Desk from one of the Insurance Claims Adjusters who received a document from an injured party and needed to read the document but could not.

The question pertains to receiving a “.pages” file either as an attachment or otherwise, on a Windows based PC and how to read that file.  A “.pages” file is the native format of a document from a Mac computer, the original PC.

The answer is “Opening a “.pages” file under windows is simple if you remember that “.pages” files are like a compressed collection of files. Associate WinZip or Winrar with “.pages” files on your windows platform, then double click on the .pages file and open the preview.pdf file within, you can then read the contents and save a local copy if needed. “

    A simple trick if you have an iPhone and the Pages app. E-mail the document to your iPhone and choose to open in Pages. Select tools then Share and Print. Select e-mail document. You then get a choice to send as Pages, PDF or Word. E-mail it back to yourself as PDF or Word.
