    I'm unable to send documents in Pages to a PC. They are unable to open them. Is there a way to fix this problem without buying new software? If I convert it to a png document and send that, will they be able to open it?

    You can export a pages document to Word or even PDF

    Saving as a PNG would be pointless, try Pages export options and send a word doc

    Why would you want to send a text document as an image? >_>"

    Pages documents are glorified folders IIRC. You will therefore need to export it as another format. If the other person doesn't need to edit it, you could send it as a PDF. If the other person needs to edit it, you can send it as a Word document.

    Here is a reason
    I wrote a Christmas letter with pictures and I want to make it readable to any computer. Not everyone has Pages or Word.
    I thought there might be a workaround to save Pages to PNG or JPEG so it's usable to all. RTF loses the formatting. Can anyone help?

    Thanks

    PDF is your answer. Export the document to PDF - most, if not all, of your recipients will be able to read PDFs (and if not, PDFs readers are easy to install).
