Now, Pages/Numbers/Keynote support might interest more people, but for
that you would need a Mac developer with some serious time on his/her
hands and at the moment there aren't many floating around in this project.
FWIW, all three will Save As in MS Office formats, for those that need
to share a file with someone else. In addition, OS X allows you to save
that file as a PDF file from the Save/Save As print dialog.
The downside of saving as MS Office format, I think you are l likely to
lose some formatting the OS X are capable of that MS formats are not. I
know this is true for Keynote to PowerPoint files.
As for the other two... I never liked Pages, just a personal
preference, so don't use it. But, our club newsletter creator has
created quite the results with Pages. I'm not sure I'd want to tackle
it in MS Word. As for Numbers, never used it, as to me all the
spreadsheets may as well be identical. I use a spreadsheet for simple
number crunching, not a graphing program, or database program.
To my knowledge, not even other apps on OSX can open the
I have to say, some will, but you have to understand the results might
not be what you want. That's a problem with importing any file created
by any program, in either direction, as I noted with Keynote files above.
One would have thought that if the problem
of interoperability with these formats was that acute, then some bright
Mac spark would have developed an app that could do just that, convert
them to something more useful.
I don't have the time to test, but possibly saving as a PDF, and then
importing into another program may work.
Mac OS X 10.8.3
