Importing text from a word processing application

Apr 7, 2013 6:43 PM

I was just wondering why I can not place a text document from the Apple application Pages like I can from Microsoft word?  I have come to use pages a bit more and have run across this issue.  Mostly just curious.  Thanks for your help.

    Save your Pages document as a Word file, and you should be ablet to place it. The Pages format is not supported.

    If you export the Apple Pages file to PDF, you can then fully convert the Pages PDF to InDesign with a third-party plugin, like our PDF2DTP, which we, Markzware make (I represent them). Here is how you can effectively get Pages to InDesign with full formatting, text styles and page positioning:
