    Pages File Format
    So I typed up a 3 page assignment in pages (d/l trial version from apple) and when I went to save as there was no option for the file format... so I saved it as is, tried to email it to my email account and It would not let me attach it, I could not even click it... So I made it a zip file attached it, then I could not open the zip file on my pc...

    I was hoping to just be able to save the document as a .rtf so it could be opend by any program... any suggestions for a mac newbie?

    easy way until you have had a chance to learn all about pages, select all, copy and paste into a textedit doc, (textedit is on your mac, find using spotlight,) and save as, it will save in rtf for you.

    Thank's for the quick fix!

    But there's certainly a way to do that in Pages isn't there?

    On the file tab, choose export, it will give you several options to export as, PDF, Word Doc, RTF, and plain text.
    Easy
