Still getting used to the Mac world - my free trial of Word for Mac runs out in a couple of days -

If I don't install Word for Mac - how do I open attachments in emails sent to me which are Word/Excel documents etc?

And how do I send my attachments via email which are in Pages to users of PC's?

Simple stuff to experts no doubt, but still a mystery to me....

Thanks

I believe pages can save a document in word as well as open word docs

Otherwise you could use NeoOffice

Yes Pages does a very good job at saving to word and opening Word docs.

In fact I actually prefer Pages to word.

I already prefer Pages as well - it is just that with the Trial period Word for Mac, all my attachments open in the trial Word. When the trial finishes tomorrow, presumably I can open Word attachments in Pages? Is there anything I need to do?

And is there a knack of saving a Pages file as Word, for forwarding on? It just seems to save to place, rather than as a file type (ie Word)

Thanks all

No, just remove Word and Pages should automatically become the default app for handling Word files.

From within Pages just do File > Export > Word Tab

Save to your desktop or wherever and email from there.

I'm sure you won't even miss word.
