    Hi all,
    For some reason, my old iWork apps were associated with an old AppleID of mine.
    Now, when I've upgraded, the iWork apps are still associated with the old AppleID, whilst my Mavericks is associated with my new one. Is there any way to change this?

    Thanks.

    There is no way. The reason the iWork apps were associated with your old AppleID is because that is the Apple ID with which you bought the apps.

    There is no way to transfer purchased apps to a different Apple ID. As long as you remember the old Apple ID and password for that account, you shouldn't run into any issues.

    Well install your old iWork apps on the machine with only your new Apple ID (by manually transferring them) and it should offer you the update and add the software on the MAS for your new ID.

    Yeah... That might be an option. Otherwise, I guess I could just uninstall the new iWorks, then reinstall it?

    If you have an older version of iLife, iWork or Aperture installed, they are added to your MAS as a "purchase" regardless of the source of the software.

    Not a transfer as such but the end result is the same.
