Opening Word documents in Pages

MS Word documents can be opened WITHOUT having Word installed on your computer.

It's enough to drag and drop the Word file onto Pages icon in the Dock. Photos from Word files won't display, some formatting will change and the Warnings panel in Pages 08 will tell you what has been removed or changed.

Likewise Excel sheets can be opened in Numbers, a new addition to iWork suite. Just drag and drop Excel document onto the Numbers icon.

And even if you don't use iWork, text documents in Word can be opened by simple text editor, TextEdit. Again, drag and drop Word doc onto TextEdit icon.

There is a world without Word.

More tips on working with Word files are in the previous post and in this earlier article.
