How to Export Your Document for Microsoft Word
If you already created your document, you'll need to open it in Pages to begin the conversion process. Otherwise, you can follow this process after you have finished making your document. When you're ready, click "Share" on the Pages menu. You'll then see a dialog box that looks like the one below.Click "RTF" if you want to use the rich text format, or click "Word" if you want to use the standard DOC format.
Regardless of which option you select, the tab will have a "Next" button that begins the conversion process. After you click it, you'll see another dialog box as below:
Type a file name next to "Save As," and then select the location to save your document next to "Where." Mac OS X uses the Documents folder as default, but you can select any other folder on your computer or even a flash drive as the "Save to" destination. Pages will then perform the conversion process, and you can either exit Pages or perhaps convert the document to another format as well. This can be useful if you are not sure you'll always have access to Word.
If you prefer to directly email the converted document instead of saving it to your computer, you can select "Send Via Mail" on the "Share" menu instead. You'll get an option to mail the document as a PDF, DOC, or RTF. This option can save the hassle of having to email the document yourself and is also helpful when you're using someone else's computer. You can email the converted file to yourself for later use.
