Re: Change From .pages To .doc En Masse

One comment about CloudConvert which was recommended in this thread. Before I took a chance with the standalone program iWork Converter I went to the CloudConvert website and signed up for the "free" account that would let me convert a few files each day. I just wanted to see how it worked. After si...

Re: Change From .pages To .doc En Masse

I decided to tell my MacOS security to let iWork Converter run on my Mac. It works perfectly. What seems to happen is I'll select an iWork file (Pages, Numbers, or Keynote) and drag it to an area within Converter. Then Converter opens the appropriate iWork program, does the conversion to the format ...

Re: Change From .pages To .doc En Masse

Here's a page mentioning http://tyorex.com/iWorkConverter/, and an Automator workflow, but it's rather old. https://apple.stackexchange.com/questions/124263/batch-convert-pages-files-to-doc/124300#124300 I've never had much luck with Automator. I need to work with it to find out its idiosyncrocies.

Re: Change From .pages To .doc En Masse

So I downloaded the trial program and ran the .dmg but my Mac told me it wouldn't open the program because it didn't have a legitimate certificate. In systems Preferences under Security I have selected "App Store and identified developers" as my option for opening programs. It seems this program doe...

Re: Change From .pages To .doc En Masse

I received an email from tech support saying that those iWork version numbers were minimums and newer iWork versions were supported. The techie who emailed me said he understood the confusion and would update their website to clarify what I (and I net others) found ambiguous at best. I just checked ...

Re: Change From .pages To .doc En Masse

This works: https://cloudconvert.com/pages-to-doc I checked these folks out and they charge by the minute. To convert all the files I have would be prohibitively expensive. They offer a freebie option but the restrictions are not going to work for me. I could do at most 15 files a day sending them ...

Re: Change From .pages To .doc En Masse

Whoops! This morning I read the website carefully and iWork file formats supported are from a a long time ago. For example, it will convert Pages v5.x but I'm using the current Pages v6.3. The same problem occurs for Numbers and Keynote with the program not supporting the newest versions of the iWor...

Change From .pages To .doc En Masse

I have several dozen documents created in Pages that I need to change to Word. I really don't want to have to open the Pages documents one at a time and save them as Word documents. Does anyone know of a program that will let you select multiple Pages documents and change them to Word documents as a...

Re: Strange New Error Message

Yeah, and I have idea what's doing it. All I can say is it started the morning after I installed High Sierra so something is trying to get access to the OS in the early hours of the morning and it doesn't play nice with High Sierra. I figure I have three choices. I can live with it. I can reformat t...
