Converting iWork Documents By Josh Blagden

One of the nice features of iWork is converting documents to other formats. 

For example, you can convert a numbers document to either an Excel document, PDF, HTML or CSV. You can convert a Keynote slideshow to either a Powerpoint, HTML, PDF, images, iPod version, or to keep all of the effects, Quicktime. 

To convert a Pages document into a Microsoft Word document, click on the Share button in the menu bar:

Then, select Word under either Send Via Mail or Export:

Then you will get this dialog box which asks which format you want it to export the document in, just to make sure that you have correctly chosen the format you want:

Then, click Next and then it will ask where you want the converted copy to go:

This video will show you how to convert Keynote Documents into Quicktime files: 

Being able to convert documents like this makes it easier to go without Microsoft Office. This also allows you to convert your presentation into a format which makes your presentation viewable on a PC while keeping all of your transitions and effects. The Quicktime version of your presentation is also uneducable  which is a nice feature, which makes it so that if you give it to someone to hand it in to a teacher, they can’t change the name on the presentation and take ownership of it. More importantly, the ability to convert to Office format is absolutely necessary if you’re not going to use Microsoft Office because every school and business uses it and very few schools and businesses have Macs.
