I want to see it in Word! Exporting-importing Pages documents.

A welcome feature in current Mac OS (El Capitan, Sierra) is that by default Word documents sent to you are opened in Pages. You don't need to concern yourself at all with Word when you are on the receiving end of work.

When you send out your document to someone who wants to see it in Word export it via

File > Export To > Word...

When the dialogue window opens you have an option of either converting the Pages document to .docx format or to an older version of Word. Click on Advanced options tab and choose a previous version of Word to have a .doc format file.

    I have a new retina 27" iMac running Sierra. I upgraded to Pages 6.3.1 but found that this version of Pages cannot open doc or docx documents. Pages 6.3 had no trouble doing this; and the office "partners" (Numbers, Keynote) of Pages 6.3.1 can easily open documents from their respective Office counterparts -- only Pages seems to be haveing this difficulty. As a result I have downgraded back to Pages 6.3 until Apple gets this fixed or until I can figure out some workaround.
