Pages, Numbers, & Keynote

If you are using Apple’s office-clone consisting of Pages, Numbers, and Keynote, it is important to know how to save files in the correct format so that they can be opened by anyone (in particular, PC users).  Each of these programs saves your work in its own proprietary format when you use the Save function.  To save a Word, Excel, or Powerpoint document, you must use the Export To function.  If you are saving a file that you plan on sending to an instructor or fellow student, it is always a good idea to export it to a common format.  Use the procedures below to export your file.

If you are using Microsoft Office, no conversion is necessary.
