    So I recently got Office for mac, mainly because I have to in order to work in some projects (with pc guys). To be honest I don't really like it, I mean iWork isn't perfect but I don't need all these obsolete features Office has. I like the plain and simple iWork apps.

    Now since I got office, al my .doc files open in Word, which makes sense but I prefer they'd open in Pages. I already tried doing "open with -> other -> always open with this app". But it doesn't seem to work, I did this like 10 times, and my doc files are still being opened in Word.

    Any help on fixing this would be appreciated.

    If you don't plan to use Word then why not just uninstall it? Then .doc files should open in Pages automatically or after setting Pages as default.

    Just a thought.

    So, you used the Get Info window and made the selection and then checked the box with “Change all files?”

    thanks I didn't use the get info window, I used the open as->other window.

    Pretty sure it works now
