Note: This is an addition to my previous article Sharing and Teamwork in iWork/Pages.
It is often claimed that Pages documents cannot be sent as email attachments. It is only true in the sense that you can't just drag a Pages file onto a new mail message or attach it with the paperclip tool.
However, there is a very simple method of doing this.
If you do need to send your Pages document as an attachment Save it as a .zip file.
- Under file menu choose Save as...
- in the file name window (it will be highlighted) type .zip after the name of the file and BEFORE the .pages extension, if it is not hidden.
To hide/show extension check/uncheck the box in the bottom left corner of the Save as... dialogue window.
Now your Pages document will have a name reading something like this
And it is mailable unless its size is bigger than your service provider's limit.
There are numerous other ways of sharing Pages and working on the same project as a team. Please refer to the article mentioned above.
